She played the role of Isil in Kuzey Yıldızı İlk Aşk, but is now making moves to star in a film.

She’s also on track to be a millionaire after becoming one of Love Island’s most popular stars ever.

Her massive social media following has seen global superbrands queuing up to work with Ekin-Su.

After signing a £1million deal to be the face of Oh Polly, Ekin-Su is now turning her attention back to her acting career.

Ekin-Su told The Sun: “The next aim for me now – forget the brand deals – is acting.

“It’s where I belong – on the screen, in the cinema, in the Vue.

“I’m going to manifest this. I’m going to be in a movie and it’s going to be a thriller.”

Asked if she’s currently auditioning for roles, Ekin-Su said she couldn’t answer that question.

She added: “I’m in the process of [something like that]. “

We also told how Ekin-Su hopes to present Love Island one day after fans called for her to replace Laura Whitmore.

Maya Jama will take on the top job instead, with Ekin-Su praising ITV2’s decision.

But she refused to rule out going for the presenting role in future.

Ekin-Su said: “I couldn’t believe how many people wanted me to do it.

“If it was a year down the line I would have done it, but because I’m so fresh I would like more training in presenting.

“I want to do it the real way. I’d like to be so good and when I’m ready mentally I would like to do presenting for Love Island.

“Right now there are other things in the pipeline that are taking up my time.”

Since Ekin-Su won the ITV2 show with her boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti in August.
