Idil Tekelioglu



I’m a New York City / Istanbul based actress. I went to Avni Akyol Fine Arts High School to study music for 4 years, and right before I left for New York, I started taking method acting classes from the phenomenal acting coach and member of The Actor’s Studio, Merve Taskan, and worked with her for almost a year. At the age of 19, I moved to New York to study acting at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts and worked on many techniques such as Meisner, Suzuki, Viewpoints, etc. I graduated on May 2017 and started getting both supporting and lead parts in various short films such as Hopelessly, Silent Life, and Janine, which have received numerous nominations & awards. I also made my Off-Broadway debut with a theater company, TAP NYC, at the Davenport Theatre and performed among other selected actors / cast. My first interview was featured both on Backstage last year, and my new article will be published soon on Stage32.
