Hazal Kaya

Hazal KayaHazal Kaya, born on the 1st October, 1990 in Gaziantep, Turkey is a Turkish actress and model.

Nowhere could I find a confirmation of her ethnic background, but from her features i would deduce that she is of Kurdish descent. The strong angular facial structure which makes Kurdish women so extremely beautiful seems evident in Hazal's features - she is an incredibly beautiful woman.

She attended Italian High School in Istanbul and graduated in 2009 and has been continuing her studies in Istanbul's Bilgi University in Performing Arts.

Her parents were both lawyers who divorced when she was 7 years old. She was introduced to the world of arts at a very young age, as a child she took ballet and violin lessons for 7 years.

Kaya speaks English, Italian and French fluently - as well as her native Turkish. Currently, she is learning her fifth language, German.

Kaya is a petite 5' 3" natural beauty who says her favorite football team is Beşiktaş.

She is the best friend of actress Yildiz Çagri Atiksoy and her favorite directors are Francois Ozon, Michael Haneke, Zeki Demirkubuz and Reha Erdem.

Kaya was picked as Turkey's most beautiful and stunning actress who has the prettiest eyes during a live TV program on TV8 Turkish channel by action hero Jean-Claude Van Damme in 2011.

Hazal KayaShe was voted #7 in Summitrans's Most Beautiful Women In The World in 2014 and in that same year she was paid US$2 million dollars for a Lux International advertisement. She sports a Princess Tattoo on her leg.

Kaya started her acting career with the television series Genco where she was cast in one of the leading roles.

In 2008, Kaya continued her career as one of the leading actresses by playing Nihal Ziyagil in a modern day adaptation of Aşk-ı Memnu.

Kaya played in the first two seasons of the television series titled Adını Feriha Koydum (I Named Her Feriha) as Feriha Yılmaz in 2012.

This series has one of the highest TV ratings in Turkey, and is also very popular in the Arab World as well as in Bulgaria.

She played the role of a porter's daughter trapped between two lives who falls in love with the wealthy boy Emir Sarrafoglu.

In late 2012, she starred in a new television series called Son Yaz but this series was taken off the air after 4 episodes because of overly expensive production.

Hazal KayaIn 2013, she starred in a series called A.Ş.K and in spite of her age, she has won awards for Best Actress.

After a while, she directed Zeynep Bulut in the movie İttazım Var, directed by Onur Ünlü.

Kaya evaluated an offer about a new television series which was to launch on January of 2015.

Her partner will be Aras Bulut İynemli who had been involved with the crew of Magnificent Century (Muhtesem Yuzyil) as a son of Kanuni named Sehzade Beyazit.

For a short time it was said that Hazal Kaya would share the leading roles with Burak Ozcivit. But in the final result, Kaya is seen in her new series with Aras Bulut Iynemli.

Finally, in 2015, Kerem Deren and Pınar Bulut's screenplay "Maral" was made into a television series starring Hazel Kaya in the lead role portraying the character of Maral Erdem.

Maral is a young ambitious girl from a middle class family whose dream is to study abroad. Maral works in the famous department store, Luna. Maral begins to cultivate sympathy for the young man who works there.
