I'm all about training and I'm in class as often as I can afford. Lucky for me, NYC has a handful of top notch MFA Directing programs that are always in need of actors for their in-class and filmed scene work. This spring, I've worked with MFA film directors from Columbia, NYU and Brooklyn College on scenes from Inside Llewyn Davis, The Graduate and An Education. I've had a blast learning how to interpret a director's words, working with so many different styles and getting to know all of these up and coming directors and screenwriters!

The summer is off to an exciting start! I just finished playing Desdemona in a short film version of Othello, opposite James Udom as Othello, Samantha Rose Hosi as Emilia and Elizabeth Gracin as Iago. The film was directed by Frank Bongjio and produced by Steven Godoy. And who could forget the sweetest PA around, Martin Lewis.


I'm really proud of the work we all did on this project and can't wait for the final product to come out in September 2016! Stay tuned! 


UPDATE: Clips from Spotted Strawberry are now in the video section of my website!

Columbia MFA - filmed class exercise

Written and Directed by Can Turedi


This was such a wonderful experience and I'm glad to have worked with Can (pronounced "John" - it just looks like "Can" in English) twice now in an in-class directing exercise and now in this filmed exercise. I was able to put into practice a lot of what I'm learning at The Atlantic Acting School in terms of seeing what's going on in my scene partner, letting that affect my behavior and using different tactics to get what I want. There's a whole lot of talent in this group!


Fun fact: According to the director and DP, I have a great profile.
