"Hello, I’m Pinar Karaaslan.
I'm a professional actress."


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 and community theatre in her hometown of Adana and she subsequently moved to Istanbul where she worked as an actress at Sisli communal theatre as well as the ITU Oyunculari theatre group.

The group which later became the foundation of Tiyatro Oyunbaz, was where she started her training as a method actress, studied Meyerhold Technique and Biomechanics and taught at breathing and articulation workshops. 

She now lives in Amsterdam where she acts in theatre productions, stars in commercials and makes films. Besides acting, she is active as a storyteller and international voice-over artist, primarily in animations.

Terrific actress! Pinar takes directions easily and delivers powerful and rich performances.
