Flash decision from the famous actor

Saying that he will not continue his career, Yılmaz also expressed that he has moved away from the profession:
“While trying to put an end to expectations and uncertainties, I never thought that I would have such a hard time putting down the sentences stuck in my head. Undecided how to start; My eyes have been going back and forth between the phone screen and an empty corner of the living room for hours. In the meantime, a thousand and one good and bad memories that come to my mind are dragging me from emotion to emotion. I smile every now and then and raise an eyebrow once in a while. It's as if I'm reliving those moments… There are so many stories that fit into my 15-year acting adventure that has passed quickly… 'But let's get back to our main topic...' ; my decision about the next process; I won't be on screens." The beautiful actress, who made a statement, continued her emotional words as follows:
“As a person whose childhood dream has come true and who has made his hobby a profession, I can clearly say that; The pleasure that acting has given me is indisputable. Aside from the joy of bringing different identities to life, it has always been a great pleasure for me to reveal hidden or suppressed emotions and behaviors by attributing them to the characters I have assumed to be. I am happy that I got this chance. If I find it very necessary that the details that distract me from my profession, which I have been loving since the age of 19, we will talk later. 'Let's not go too far...' I owe an endless thank you to everyone who gave me the opportunity and right to experience this pleasure. People I am honored to work with, good acquaintances, meaningful friendships… I am grateful for everything that my profession has brought to my life, for everything bitter and sweet. Everyone who feels my love and respect inside, glad they exist...
