Despite that, Leyla still believes that she will find someone she can have a deep connection with.

Sarikaya is best known for her roles as Duru Durulay in Fi, Mira Beylice in Ebb and Tide, and Yesim Taskiran in The Tulip Age.

When Omer returns to Leyla's life in the present day, she believes that he is the safest choice to pick among her desired lovers. 

Omer appears to be a perfect guy, but he is a proven cheater, which is a bad sign for Leyla.

The fact that Cem is already in his third marriage makes Leyla think that he easily gets bored with his relationships. Still, there is sexual tension between the pair, leading to them hooking up during one eventful night.

Kurtas previously appeared as Deniz in Full Moon, Demir in Crash, and Izzet in Body

Boran Kuzum - Feyyaz

Boran Kuzum's Feyyaz is a well-respected chef whom Leyla meets during her out-of-town vacation with her friends. 

Feyyaz tries to impress Leyla during the night of their first meeting, leading to a romantic night together. The only problem is the fact that Feyyaz ghosted her after their whirlwind of intimate moments. 

Feyyaz is eventually introduced to Dafne (Cem's first wife) and the pair hit it off, but the latter appears to be not at peace with the idea of spending a lifetime with him. 

Kuzum has credits in Wounded Love, The Protector, and Intoxicated by Love.
