Kerem Bürsin : "I really like being alone".

Discreet and polite, he responds to questions about Hande Erçel, his love in Love is in the Air as well as in real life, and settles questions about his ex, Serenay Sarikaya (Medcezir), with "there is no need to touch personal matters". Otherwise, he describes himself as a man who is passionate about music and sports and fights for women's rights.


In your career, how important is Love is in the Air?

It is one of my most popular works, but all of them are relevant to me. However, some of them I wish I hadn't done... (laughs).

It will be competing in Spain with Woman, another Turkish fiction.

With more productions, it's better. We are more comrades than competition.

What attracted you to Serkan?

I knew it would be fun to play him. I was in the mood for laughter after several dramas. Besides, I love to make people laugh.

Are you as charismatic as he is?

No, I think we have a different perception of success (laughs). Although I would like to say that we are not alike, we are not. I get bogged down in details like him, which I'm not proud of.

What would you say about Hande Erçel?

She is a dream partner, I love working with her. When the relationship with your co-star is based on trust, it becomes a very fun journey.

Have you lived in many countries?

Yes, when I was ten months old I was already in Scotland, then Indonesia, Jakarta, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States, where I studied. I have been fortunate to know many cultures, I keep them in my heart and they have helped me to be the way I am.

You studied Marketing as well as Acting, why?

When I was 13 years old I already knew I wanted to be an actor, but my parents didn't trust the profession so I chose that career, which I love: it helps me to get to know people.

How was your time in the United States?

I have very good memories, I did everything. I worked as a chauffeur for celebrities, fitness trainer... That's how it works in Los Angeles if you want to be an actor.

What made you come back to Turkey?

American producers were asking me if I had worked in my country, so I thought I should do it - I never planned to stay so long! (laughs).

Which country do you prefer?

I want to work in both, but I would live in many places: the world is very beautiful.

Did you imagine so much success?

I dreamed about it. It's the fruit of hard work, of being true to yourself and being at the right time. There is still a lot to do, it's nice to feel that this is just the beginning.

Do you like fame?

I don't live thinking about it, but about work. If the profession gives it to me, perfect, if not, that's fine too.

Is physique important to you?

Maybe, but in a very ephemeral way. What's important in the end is talent and work.

What would you do if you weren't an actor?

I would dedicate myself to teaching, I would be a teacher.

You have an activist soul.

I fight for women's rights. It has been a very important issue for me for some years now. I've been trained, I've collaborated with UN Women and now I have several projects. I am also interested in the environment. I would like to help make the world a better place.

What do you think a couple should have to work together?

Common goals and good communication.

To get to know you better, we should know that...

I really like living alone, although I hope to start my own family. I love climbing, training, boxing and almost all water sports. I am entertained by building and fixing things and am an avid reader.
