Life and career[edit]

Her maternal family are Circassians, while her paternal family are Turkish immigrants from Kavala, Greece.[1] Evcen was born in Solingen and spent a difficult time in Germany with her family during her childhood. At the age of seven, when the German Neo-Nazis started burning the homes of the Turks in the city of Solingen, Evcen's family kept the lights of their houses closed all the time.[2][3][4] In Turkey, while she was on a vacation, she took part in Oya Aydoğan's program, and she introduced Evcen' to producer İbrahim Mertoğlu.[5] While she was studying sociology at Düsseldorf Heinrich-Heine University, she received an offer to work on a TV series as an actress; thus, she finished her studies and moved to Istanbul with her mother. She portrayed the character of Necla on the TV series Yaprak Dökümü. Evcen had her first cinematic debut with the movie Cennet which was released on 11 April 2008, and at the same year she was cast in a leading role in the movie Aşk Tutulması. As Evcen had not finished her studies in Germany, she enrolled in Boğaziçi University and studied history.[6] She later played the character Feride in the TV series Çalıkuşu produced by TİMS Productions.[7] She later acted in the movie Aşk Sana Benzer opposite her Çalıkuşu co-star Burak Özçivit.[8]

Personal life[edit]

On 29 June 2017, she married actor and model Burak Özçivit at Sait Halim Paşa Waterside in Istanbul.[9] In 2017, she ranked ninth Buzznet's list of the "World's 30 Most Beautiful Women" in which the likes of Gigi Hadid, Emma Watson, Adriana Lima, Hillary Clinton and Angelina Jolie were also named.[10][11]
