What other roles has Hande Erçel played in the past?
Well, the range is wide. From an ambitious young woman who seeks to enter the elite at the hands of her mother’s boyfriend, to the poor obsession of a dangerous man deranged by love. We tell you below:
Gunesin Kizlari. In her first leading role on Turkish television, Erçel played Selin Yılmaz, one of the three daughters of the protagonist of the story. In it, they follow in the footsteps of Günes, a 35-year-old woman who, after being abandoned by her husband, falls in love again with a rich man. Determined to get married, she and her daughters move into his mansion in Istanbul, a change that Selin, with high ambitions and happy to enter the elite, is truly delighted. Unlike her sisters.
Hayat: love without words. Her great opportunity would come in this series at the hands of Hayat Uzun, a girl from humble origins who was born and lives in the capital with two friends. Taking advantage of a mistake that causes her to be mistaken, Hayat starts working as a personal assistant to Murat Sarsılmaz, heir to a textile company.

A man with psychological problems who accidentally killed his wife and who becomes obsessed with Hazal, who is incredibly related to the deceased.
halka. In a remarkable change of register, Halka begins with the murder of a man in a public parking lot. Beside him, the police find a live baby.
