Spanish-born model and actor Jared Celma was in Antalya for a new Netflix project. We came together with young players on this occasion, and we asked their thoughts about the new project and Turkey. All the answers are in our interview …
Can we get to know you a little closer? What is the characteristic of Jared Celma like?
Even if not, I would like to live as if I had an ordinary life. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. When I decided to start modelling three years ago, I knew it was a tough choice. Because I knew that as long as I modelled in many different countries, I would stay away from my family; indeed, it did. However, this was my choice. Mostly during the quarantine process, all things stopped suddenly, and the closing home was difficult for me, like everyone else. I bought myself a dog, so I can say that the days passed a little faster.
“Modeling was the starting point for me. Now my goal is a good one to be an actor. “
How did you decide to become an actor?
In these three years of Modeling, I drew many people from the film industry while working with major brands. Many people were following my photos and videos, especially on Instagram. Thanks to this, I mailed a few directors working on digital platforms. I received essential suggestions from them for the future, and I started to receive acting training in this direction. Modelling was the starting point for me anyway… Now my goal is to be a good actor.
“It was my dream to take a role in the Netflix production.”
You are starring in a new Netflix production; what does that mean to you?
A few years ago, it was my dream to star in a Netflix production. Now it gives us unique happiness to do this. And it motivates me to work on other projects from now on.
Could you tell us a little bit about the project, what will it be like?

“Turkey is a red flag to their mind, deep blue sea, it sounds friendly to people and beautiful memories.”
Turkey comes to their mind what?
A red flag, a blue sea, friendly people, and beautiful memories of my family have much of Turkey’s idea through arrays. Turkey as soon as possible with them, we want to visit, this time for the holidays.
Have you been to Antalya before?
First time in Turkey. I had the chance to see Istanbul before coming to Antalya. I have visited many places there. I was very impressed by the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Ortaköy, Kadıköy. Antalya’s unique natural beauties and planned construction fascinated me.
Are you going to tour the city?
Sure… I have already visited a few places in Antalya for the project. However, I will leave Antalya a few days after the shooting ends. At that time, I want to visit a few more natural beauties recommended to me.
