Some Lesser Known Facts About Demet Özdemir
- Demet Özdemir is a Turkish model, actor, dancer, and comedian, who is popular for her Turkish TV series ‘Erkenci Kuş.’
- During an interview, while talking about her family, she shared that her sister had started modelling before her. She said,
Actually, my sister’s star rose first. Mehmet Ali noticed my sister in the audience and gave her a card saying ” Your face is beautiful, sign up with Neşe Erbek’s agency”. My sister got her first offer a week after she was signed to the agency. She listened to her and kept secret from my father to evaluate the offer. He jumped on the train and went to Istanbul, just like in Turkish movies.”
My 19-year-old sister couldn’t even draw a pencil in her eye for fear of my father. Any kind of make-up was forbidden in our house anyway. Even though I was only 8-9 years old, I made my sister’s entire escape plan. I gave my mother the task of distracting my father. We’ve already gone through a lot of beatings. Especially my sister was more afraid of my father than me.”
- At the age of 7, her parents got divorced. In an interview, while talking about it, she said,
I remember we hung our heads and waited in front of him. The blade was now on the bone. We took my father in front of us and talked, but the languages we spilled didn’t work. ‘I don’t want to listen any more, get out of your room,’ he said. My sister and I locked ourselves in the room and cried for days. We finally persuaded my father to move, but he did not come with us. He got married right after we left. I also have to say that; Opening our way was the greatest favor he could do for us.”
- In her teenage, she faced various financial difficulties. During an interview, while talking about it, she said,
My sister had married a rich man, but that did not help us. We had to cut our own belly. One day our money ran out. We almost need a slice of bread. Sitting with my mother, we are brooding on what to do. I am 16 years old and suddenly decided to dance but I was short and weighed 63 kg. They told me I had to be 51-52 kilos or I couldn’t dance. I worked hard, ate only salad every day, did pilates and lost 11 kilos in a month.”
