Turkish actress Beren Saat, famously known as her characters Fatma and Samar in the Arab world, said that she's recently listened to a song by Lebanese superstar Elissa and "liked it."
"I loved her voice and her emotions. I didn't understand what she was saying, but the way she was singing is all I needed to really feel her and the song's emotions."
Beautiful Beren is an icon in the Middle East, loved for her acting roles in popular dubbed Turkish dramas and for her amazing sense of style.
However, Beren seems to be oblivious to just how famous she is in the ME.
"I didn't know I was this popular in the Arab world," she said, according to a Turkish online newspaper.
The actress also said that she has watched Arabic TV dramas during a visit to the UAE, which were translated into Turkish for her by an Arab friend.
