After the launch of Love Island’s latest series, many have questioned the name of one participant, especially.
Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu is famous for bringing drama to the villa, but many wondered where her unusual name came from.
What does the name Ekin-Su mean?
Ekin-Su became the star of the Spanish Villas after romances with Davide Sanclimenti and Jay Younger, but fans wondered how she got her name.
Ekin is a non-gender Turkish name meaning “harvest”.
Su is a rare female name of Turkish origin, meaning “water”.
However, after old photos of Ekin-Su reappeared, it was revealed that Ekin-Su had used the name Susie Hayzel when she was in college.
What was Ekinsu like before Love Island?
Shortly before entering the villa, the 27-year-old underwent breast augmentation surgery and veneered her teeth.
The star revealed about an operation she underwent about eight months before her popular dating show.
Ekin-Su went to Dental Design in Antalya, Turkey for the teeth, where he spent around £4,000 on the procedure.
She told her followers that she had 10 upper teeth and 11 lower teeth.
Ekin-Su had breast surgery at the Comfort Zone surgery in Istanbul.
She later said she suffered, but nurses looked after her 24/7.
What TV shows has she appeared in?
Ekn-Su rose to fame by appearing in a Turkish TV series called Kuzey Yildizi (2020), which means North Star.
The Love Island star portrays Isil’s role in the series.
Here is the IMDb synopsis of the series: “The families are friendly too. Kuzey and Yildiz are engaged. But when Kuzey went to Istanbul to study at university, he forgot everything and set sail for a new love.
“When his family finds out about this, Kuzey is excommunicated by everyone in town, including his own.”
However, she started her entertainment career while studying performing arts at the University of Central Lancashire.
She starred in Lancashore, which follows the lives of her students while trying to imitate the form of Geordie Shore.
