Turkish actress Bergüzar Korel tops Arab TV survey
Bergüzar KorelBergüzar Korel, a Turkish actress best known for her role in the “Binbir Gece” (Thousand and One Nights) series, has been named as the best Turkish actress in a survey conducted by an Arab TV station.
Korel won over Tuba Büyüküstün, another Turkish actress known for her performance in the “Asi” (Rebellious/Orontes River) series. The survey asked respondents to grade the actresses both for their beauty and acting performances.
Korel was chosen for this title as she “resembled the Turkish woman” and also won the hearts of the respondents for her “modesty” and “humbleness,” whereas “natural” and “noble beauty” phrases were used to describe Büyüküstün.
Büyüküstün was nominated for the best performance by an actress award of the 42nd International Emmy Awards with her role in the “20 Dakika” (20 Minutes) series. She will compete for the award with Olivia Colman from the U.K., Romina Gaetani from Argentina and Bianca Krijgsman from the Netherlands. The International Emmy Awards will be presented in New York on Nov. 24.
