Who Is Cansu Dere?
Cansu Dere, born on October 14, 1980, in Ankara, is a renowned Turkish actress, model, and former Miss Turkey.
Her father is descended from the Turkish community in Bulgaria, while her mother is from the Turkish community in Thessaloniki, Greece, which adds to her diversified background and special appeal.
Turkey’s Zmir is where Cansu Dere spent her formative years finishing her primary and secondary studies. She was selected to represent her nation in the Miss Universe pageant in 2000.
She was forced to leave the competition, though, as a result of political tensions between Turkey and Cyprus.
Since Turkey and the Republic of Cyprus at the time had diplomatic ties, the Turkish government forbade Cansu from travelling to the pageant unless she went through Northern Cyprus.
Sadly, there was no other choice because it was against the law for any visitors to enter the Republic of Cyprus through Northern Cyprus.
The Turkish competition committee attempted to arrange for her to travel via Athens, but in the end, the government refused to let her leave for “political reasons.” After this incident, a representative for Turkey was denied entry for the second time that year.
Cansu Dere made the decision to change her career path after this failure and focus on modelling. She quit her job at Istanbul University’s Archaeology Department and devoted herself to modelling.
The Istanbul Textile and Apparel Exporters’ Association representative Cansu represented Turkey in a number of international organisations.
She was able to appear in a lot of fashion shows, including those in Paris in 2002 and 2003, because of her talent and charisma. She collaborated with renowned photographers as well, strengthening her position in the modelling business.
Cansu and Mehmet Akif Alakurt co-starred in the hit TV show Sla from 2006 to 2008. They both played the role “Sla,” and they garnered significant recognition and praise for their performances.
In the 2007 film The Last Ottoman, she co-starred as ‘Defne’ with Kenan Mirzalolu, demonstrating her flexibility to audiences once more. Cansu’s abilities went beyond acting as she demonstrated her comedic talents in the 2009 black comedy Ac Aşk.
She riveted viewers from 2009 to 2011 with her compelling portrayal as “Eyşan” in the popular television series Ezel. In the acclaimed historical drama Magnificent Century, Cansu took on the difficult challenge of playing the Iranian Safavid spy “Firuze/Huymerya” in 2012–2013.
In the TV series Anne (2016–2017), where she co-starred with Beren Gökyldz as her daughter Turna/Melek, she once again displayed her exceptional talent.
The critically acclaimed TV series Sadakatsiz, which functioned as the Turkish version of the English-produced Doctor Foster series, was Cansu Dere’s most recent endeavour, and it ran from 2020 to 2022.
Cansu played the role of “Asya Ylmaz” in the film Sadakatsiz well, sharing the lead role with Caner Cindoruk and Melis Sezen.
Cansu Dere has demonstrated her prodigious talent and variety over the course of her career, winning over crowds both in Turkey and abroad.
She is a popular and recognised personality in the entertainment world thanks to her dedication to her trade and inherent attractiveness. Cansu Dere has had an incredible impact on Turkish television and film, and she continues to do so with her captivating on-screen presence.
