Lithuanian model-turned-actress Kerry Demirci plays a fun-loving Erasmus student from the Netherlands in the popular family sitcom “Çocuklar Duymasın” (Don’t let the kids hear). Winning a beauty contest in Lithuania at the young age of 17, it was down to a luck of the draw that she was sent out by her modeling agency to Turkey, where she met and fell in love with her future Turkish husband, eventually also converting to Islam. Not just a pretty face, Kerry initially dreamt of becoming a dentist before she was offered a modeling job. In the meantime, she has kept up her studies at the open university in Lithuania where she is a psychology freshman.

In a recent interview, she spoke about her new life in Turkey and plans for the future. Noting that “tamam” was the first word she learned in Turkish, Demirci also said she attended a language school for eight months in order to learn Turkish. Although Demirci noted that she hadn´t experienced much of a culture shock in Turkey, she described how she was often met with curious stares on the street.

“I´ve felt like a foreigner from the way that people look at me in the street. I think that everyone looks at me because I am blonde and blue eyed. However, in Lithuania, people come across as cold, perhaps due to the weather. Here [Turkey], people are so warm and friendly,” Demirci said.

She spoke of regularly meeting up with the community of other Lithuanian women married to Turkish men and living in Istanbul and put the popularity of the inter-cultural marriages down to a mutual soft spot between Turks and Lithuanians.

“There are about 30 girls from Lithuania in Turkey. I found them through Google. All are married to Turkish men, we meet up quite frequently,” she said.

On the importance of staying healthy, Demirci spoke of her balanced diet and sporting activities.

“I go to the gym regularly in order to stay fit, around four to five times a week. I have a balanced diet and I eat a lot of chicken and boiled vegetables. If I have time I also make great sushi. I don´t eat bread at all. Turkish dishes are so delicious but I stay away from most of them,” she said.

Although, Demirci has visited many cities in Turkey, she listed Istanbul and Izmir as her favorites, adding that Bebek was her preferred hang-out spot in Istanbul.
