Sometimes, real-life echoes soap-world and secret marriages are the stuff of actors' and actresses' off-screen lives: Turkish Star Deniz Cakir, known to most as 'Fotun', has gotten hitched in private.
Turkish actress, Deniz Çakir, who’s known for her role as 'Fotun' (the villainess) in the famous Turkish series “Al Awraq Al Mutasaqeta” (Falling Leaves), secretly got married to her boyfriend and co-star “Iffet”, Ibrahim Çelikkol. The actress was spotted wearing a single-diamond solitaire ring - a gift that she received while celebrating her birthday in Paris with her man, Ibrahim.
Deniz Çakir plays the role of “Futon”; a strong gold digger who causes problems everywhere and to everyone around her. Deniz outdid herself in the role of the wicked woman, making her the key character in “Al Awraq Al Mutasaqeta”.
The third season of “Al Awraq Al Mutasaqeta ” (Falling Leaves) is currently being aired on MBC1. The series contained 5 seasons dubbed into the popular Syrian accent, now come to be synonymous with all the Turkish series on the Arabic TV channels .
So much is the collective Arab conscience tuned into Syrian as 'Turkish' that some people joke that if you can talk Syrian you can certainly talk Turkish. Arab children from non-Syria probably do interpret Syrian-speak as Turkish!
