“Terrific actress! Pinar takes directions easily and delivers electrifying performances.”

Pinar Karaaslan (1985) is a Turkish-Swedish actress. She started her acting career at the age of twelve, in typical fashion: performing in school productions which got her parts in community theatre in her hometown of Adana. She has ever since been working as an actress in Turkey, Sweden and now The Netherlands; getting multiple roles in short films, feature films and international commercials as well as stage productions.

Pinar follows classes in Method Acting by Andre Landzaat, whilst discovering also other techniques to further develop her acting skills. She consistently works on her talent by attending to workshop and trainings throughout Europe.

She speaks four languages fluently; Swedish, English, Turkish and Dutch. She is as well conversant in German and French. She has a talent for accents and she picks up new languages very quickly.

Pinar is currently co-writing a Turkish-Dutch co-production feature film in which she will also play the lead. In 2019, Pinar will be seen in the Swedish action film AFTER THE FIGHT and the long-short TALITIOAH. In 2018, Pinar was among the cast of the Dutch feature film FORGET TO DIE and one of the leads in the experimental art film 4Q510.

Besides acting, Pinar is active as a storyteller and international voice-over artist, primarily in animations.

Pinar has a powerful and expressive, professional instrument.
