Biography

At 21, Meltem graduated from a university with a major in drama. She then worked as an actress for the Shakespeare Company in London. Taking on a career in television, she hosted the reality program Aşağı Yukarı (Turkish version of Goodson-Todman's Card Sharks) and the game show Nereden Başlasak. During this time, Meltem also played a number of supporting roles in movies, most notably Bay E and Böcek. In 1996, she starred in a Sahte Dünyalar, a popular soap opera. She released a single, which was named Seninleyim ben in 1997.

Meltem was given her own show The Meltem Cumbul Show, a year later. She did leading parts in the movies Karışık Pizza, Geboren in Absurdistan and the musical Anlat Şehrazat Anlat. Meltem acted in the popular TV series Biz size aşık olduk, Beşik Kertmesi and Gurbet Kadını. Next, she starred in the extremely popular Yılan Hikayesi, which is to date the highest rated program ever in the history of Turkish television.

Meltem's role in the movie Abdülhamit Düşerken won her the Golden Orange Prize at the Antalya Film Festival. Next, she acted in the award winning and critically acclaimed movies Gegen die Wand and Gönül Yarası.

Meltem was also given the honor of co-presenting the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest with Korhan Abay. The couple was the first to have a two-night gig in the ESC history, as the contest added a pre-qualifying semifinal broadcasted three days before the final night.

She has just signed a deal to act in a bollywood film called, "Tell Me O Kkhuda", starring Esha Deol, Dharmendra and Rishi Kapoor. The film is being directed by Hema Malini.
