Şükrü Özyıldız Interview: I will not die without seeing the world!

What is your reason to be an actor: popularity or intrinsic satisfaction for touching upon people’s lives?

Şükrü Özyıldız: Popularity is a big trap. I suggest my friends who just start acting not to fall into that trap. Here, the popularity is not an ultimate aim, it is a side effect. To touch upon other people’s lives is very important. Without speaking, to say “I feel what you feel” is valuable. Acting is a way of sharing and empathy.
