What is Ekin-Su’s ethnicity and nationality?

Ekin-Su was born on 21 August 1994, making her 27 years old. The model was born in Istanbul, making her nationality Turkish. Her ethnicity has yet to be disclosed on the show but the influencer’s parents are primarily Turkish so it’s safe to say she’s Turkish too!

When she began her modelling career and started to become an influencer she moved to Essex in England. She now travels back and forth between her home city of Istanbul and the UK.

Ekin-Su is also an actress and brand ambassador

Ekin-Su is also a pretty successful actress. The star started her career as an actress and model at a young age and has featured as a leading cast member of Turkish series Kuzey Yildizi.

Aside from acting, thanks to her high following she is also a brand ambassador for many popular retail stores such as FashionNova. Erin will usually promote brands on her Instagram, where she boasts an impressive 353K followers.

Why did Ekin-Su want to appear on Love Island?

The model and actress said she wanted to appear on Love Island to “find the love of her life” – don’t we all! During her introduction, she said:

I’m looking for that real genuine spark and they just see me as me. I think the concept of the show brings back true and raw feelings.

However, it seems things could get a little dramatic and exciting with Erin as she is definitely not there to make friends. She added:

If someone wants to have an argument with me – bring it on.

When it comes to her potential future partner, however, Ekin said she can be quite picky and wants someone with the full package.

I’m not just looking for looks, I’m looking for brains! I’m looking for someone with intelligence, someone who can have good chats.
