Can Yaman was born in Istanbul, Turkey, on November 8, 1989, and has grown to be a well-known personality in the Turkish and international entertainment industries. His transformation from a renowned actor to a corporate lawyer job demonstrates his adaptability and tenacity.
Early Life and Education
Yaman’s grandmother is from North Macedonia, and his grandpa is Kosovo-Albanian, therefore he embodies the rich tapestry of cultural variety. Yaman’s family struggled financially, thus he was raised by his grandparents. His upbringing was characterized by fortitude and love from family. His early life was further impacted by the divorce of his parents when he was five years old.
Yaman was a bright student who attended Bilfen College for his elementary education before achieving academic success at the Liceo Italiano di Istanbul. His multilingualism is evident in his fluency in Turkish, Italian, French, English, German, and Spanish. After completing his studies at Yeditepe University’s Law Department in 2012, he started working at PricewaterhouseCoopers. But he quickly discovered that his actual interest was elsewhere.
Yaman voiced his dissatisfaction with corporate life in an interview with Hello! magazine in 2018. He said, “I felt like having an open view but sitting in an office and wearing a suit bothered me a lot.” It was this insight that brought him to the theater.
During a summer break from work, Yaman ventured to Bodrum, where fate intervened. There, he crossed paths with his future acting managers, Cüneyt Sayıl and İlker Bilgi. This encounter marked the beginning of his acting career. Leaving behind the corporate world, Yaman embraced the unpredictable and artistic life of an actor.
In 2014, he made his acting debut in the television series “Gönül İşleri.” Early parts in “İnadına Aşk” (2015) and “Hangimiz Sevmedik” (2016) prepared the ground for his 2017 breakthrough with the television series “Dolunay.”
Yaman’s professional high point, nevertheless, was costarring with Demet Özdemir in the Turkish romantic comedy series “Erkenci Kuş” (2018–2019). He received international praise and the 2018 Golden Butterfly Award for Best Actor in a Romantic Comedy for this performance.
His career took off when he landed the main part in the Turkish series “Bay Yanlış” (2020), for which he was nominated for a Golden Butterfly Award in the Best Actor in a Romantic Comedy category. Nominations for international competitions like as PRODU2020 and LATAM PRODU 2020 Awards increased Yaman’s appeal on a worldwide scale.
Beyond his acting talent, Yaman’s magnetism made him the face of the well-known Turkish apparel company TUDORS in 2020, where he signed a three-million-dollar, two-year deal. This enhanced his standing as a style icon.
He signed a contract for the “Sandokan” television series in December 2020 with the Italian production firm Luxvide. His flexibility was later shown to a broader audience when he made an appearance in the Italian series “Che Dio ci Aiuti” in March 2021.
