Childhood years: 

Caner Topçu started acting with a course opened by the municipality during his high school years. “Singing, diction, theater and instrument training were given. They also opened a booth in the garden of the school. I went to the booth with my close friend Fatih and looked at the informative articles. We filled it out just to fill it out and applied for theater education. Actually, we wanted to skip classes. At that time, I was playing computer games like crazy. There is also some antisociality. After a while, I received a meeting message for the theater. I didn't care. Fatih called me to go to the meeting. I said I wouldn't come. Fatih also came home. They persisted with my mother. I went too. After that, I went on countless plays there for 6 years. He left the theater 4 weeks after he started in Fatih. I started to slack off from class.

The turning point of his life: 

Caner Topçu states that Barbaroslar: Sword of the Mediterranean, which he considers to be his first important TV series project, was a turning point in his career. “Barbaroslar is my third but first big job. I can say that it is the first job where I can show myself with my acting performance. I am not a known, well-known actor. I think it is an advantage for an unknown actor to start with such a project. Because the whole audience adopted me as 'Ilyas Reis'. For example, Engin brother (Engin Altan Düzyatan) is a character who turned into Oruç from Ertuğrul. But I entered the lives directly as İlyas. I think the audience adopts it more. I'm getting good responses. I want to do my best.”

The first step into acting: 

Caner Topçu started his television adventure in 2019 with the TV series "Nöbet". He attracted attention with the character of "İlyas Reis", which he portrayed in the TV series "Barbaroslar: Sword of the Mediterranean".

Personality traits: 

The most intolerable thing in his life; Lie! “One of the things I don't like is lying. There have been people in my life whom I turned cold and stopped talking because of the little lies.”


In his circle of friends, the person who makes plans is usually himself. “But I am late everywhere. I can never be there on time. I can't help it, I don't understand why it is like this."

Unforgettable memory: 

Caner Topçu has an unforgettable memory with the actor Engin Altan Düzyatan, who played his brother in the TV series Barbaroslar: Sword of the Mediterranean. “I saw Engin brother for the first time at the age of 17. Our theater teacher took the whole workshop to the set of Diriliş. 30-40 people went. We toured the plateau. I think Engin had a break and was going home. All friends went crazy when they saw Engin brother. Everyone went to him and began to take pictures. I was also a little embarrassed. I said to my friend next to me, 'Let's not go, let's not hurt him. If I had been told that day that you would be involved in the same project with Engin Altan Düzyatan in the coming years, I probably wouldn't have believed it.”

His outlook on business life: 

Being an actor was more than a dream for him. “After I started the theater, I said, 'What I see as a hobby should now be my profession'. I was saying to myself that you're going to be an actor for sure. As time passed, my perspective on this profession began to decorate my dreams. I dreamed of working with the projects I wanted to be involved with and the master actors I wanted to be with. I hope it all comes true in time. At the beginning of my career, I was involved in a strong period job. Period work has many different layers. You ride a horse, you get a different training for action scenes. We are recreating the 15th century there. It has a dialect of that period, it has a different texture. And I'm making a period dialect right now. For all these reasons, of course, I had some reservations at first. But after that, I was relieved. I have worked with many valuable players. Oruç Reis, that is, Engin Altan Düzyatan, has a crew, we were always together with this crew in the series.

Career plan: 

“My surname is Topçu. I wanted to be a football player, but I can play ball well. Then I thought about policing or something. After the theater, the desire to act came. I have goals, I have dreams. I acted in a short film while I was at the theatre. I started watching a lot of Hollywood movies at that time. The more I watched, the more motivated I was. While watching the master actors, I used to think, 'I would play it like this'. Not to criticize but this is my comment. 10 people play İlyas, but 10 people play it differently. Everyone's point of view is different. My dream is to be in Hollywood.”

Dreaming of the Future: His idols Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ and Haluk Bilginer. He very much wants to take part in the same project with them. “Kivanc brother was my idol in my youth. I also have a memory with him. I was watching North South like crazy back then. I pick up the phones as 'Lan Ferhat'. One day, when I was at home, my father called me. He said, 'Your safe is over there, there is footage'. Kivanc, whom he calls mine. I was going to the theatre. I have the texts. I saw Kıvanç brother while I was passing by the set. I said to myself I have to go inside. While entering, an officer said, "No, you know". I said that I came from the agency and showed the texts in my hand. I got in. I want to talk and I'm ashamed. The bodyguard of brother Kıvanç said to me, 'go get some coffee for brother Kıvanç'. I took the coffee and went to Kıvanç brother, trembling. I was about to give him the coffee when the bodyguard took it from me. My only memory of that day is that I took a photo of the Tekinoğlu bakery car.”
