He wants to create conditions where he can lead a fun and peaceful life free from tension as much as possible. He doesn’t like making plans too much. “As I got older, there was a serious change in my outlook on life. I see that many of the situations that I enjoyed in my 20s are no longer in my life. After all this experience, I think I know myself better, I know better the way I can be happy.”

He has no tolerance for disrespect. He thinks that he recovers in nature most easily when he feels bad. He finds dynamic, fun and strong women attractive. He loves meeting his friends and chatting over good food. He also likes to play Playstation tournaments at home, especially with his football-loving friends. When he wants to stay calm, he relieves his tiredness by reading a book and watching a movie.

Birkan Sokullu first started acting in 2008 by taking acting lessons from Dolunay Soysert when he received an offer from the TV series Elif. Then she attracted attention with the character “Ayaz” in the TV series Küçük Kadınlar (Little Women).

Birkan Sokullu, who married successful actress Aslı Enver in 2012, was married for three years. After the joint decision of the couple, the couple divorced in a single session in Küçükçekmece Family Court.

He reads, watches and observes a lot about his profession. Fame is not the center of his life. He says fame won’t last forever. That’s why he wants to do his job in the best way possible. Whenever he has time, he attends workshops given by actor coaches.

For a long time, he made various attempts to act in foreign films or TV series. At the end of the day, he wonders how far he can go with his profession and does not want to limit himself to Turkey.

He likes David Fincher movies in general. “The God Father” is one of his favorite cult movies. He prefers to watch detective and psychological thrillers. “The Game”, “Forest Gump” and “The Big Lebowski”, which he says I watch whenever I’m bored, are among his favorite movies.
