Duru Yücel is a Turkish actress best known for starring in the apocalyptic feature film We Put the World to Sleep.

At the age of 10, she studied acting at Bornova Municipality’s Theater for a year, which led to her first appearance on stage. From that moment on, she came to know very clearly that she wanted to be an actress.

Duru chose to study English-Turkish Interpretation and Translation in college but her passion for acting never stopped haunting her, so she continued her education with three years of acting classes at The Studio Players in Istanbul, where she performed multiple times with the ensemble of The Studio Players. She also acted in various TV series, commercials, a short movie which traveled to Cannes, and worked with international film festivals hosting esteemed guests such as Golden Globes President Lorenzo Soria.

Duru Yücel’s most recent cinematic venture is We Put the World to Sleep, an international coproduction she stars in and also produced. Directed by Adrian Țofei, the movie is their most ambitious project to date.

Duru adores jazz and has a demo album of ten classical jazz songs which received good feedback from the music industry. Swimming, yoga, traveling, spending time in nature, learning about the ways of the world and the causes she might have the privilege to support, the topics of literature, painting, architecture, health, psychology, spirituality, science and history are also among her interests.
