I remember when I watched one of the Turkish shows some 8 years ago and it was very relatable. Any curious person might ask this question; "Is the actors or actresses in Turkish shows are Muslim?" Turkey is a 98% Muslim country, even though the general population of Turkey is secular, also this 98% term is generally flawed as nobody knows about your personal believes or when they change.

One of the studies shows that Turkey is going more toward secularism or less religious. One thing to note down here is that there are a lot of foreign actors who are doing acting in Turkey. Most of the foreign actors and actresses in Turkey from Turkey's neighbor countries like Greece, Turkmenistan, and Romania.

Also, Turkey has this law that if you are born with Turkish parents then you are automatically assigned a Muslim status unless and until you stated otherwise. These Turkish actors and actresses are famous because they are good actors. Being a good actor has nothing to do with what religion you belong to. I am a fan of these Turkish actors and actresses till they do A+ acting.
