Yasemin Allen (born 10th of July 1989 in Ashford, England), best known for her roles in the movie Su ve Ates (Water and Fire), the tv series Merhamet (Mercy) and Muhtesem Yüzyıl (Magnificent Century), is a Turkish actress of English descent. Her mother, Suna Yıldızoglu, an established actress and singer, was a prominent figure in the movies of the 70’s and 80’s Yesilçam era which is still regarded as one of the high points of Turkish cinema history.

Yasemin was raised in Turkey and Australia and moved back to İstanbul after completing her education. After experimenting with behind the scenes work, learning the techniques of film production and continuing to work with acting coaches, she starred in her first TV series in 2008, called Elif.

Growing up bilingual, Yasemin developed an ear for dialects and accents. Having an English background with the ability to speak fluent Turkish enabled her to play a wide array of roles of different nationalities for the next few years, including Russian and French characters in two popular comedy series - Kavak Yelleri and Yerden Yüksek. In 2012, she gained popularity with the show Merhamet (Mercy), where her role as a rich, spoiled girl who develops sociopathic tendencies became a hit with the viewers.

In 2012 she was the face of the online shopping site N11.com. In 2013 she starred as the lead role in her first movie, Su ve Ates (Water and Fire), part of which was shot in London. Since then, she has starred in the highly popular series Muhtesem Yüzyıl (Magnificent Century), had an advertising campaign for Turkey’s largest telecommunications provider TTNET, and finally starred in Seref Meselesi (A Matter of Honor).

Yasemin is currently the brand ambassador for Ducati in Turkey and is known to speak up for women’s rights and animal rights.
