Prior to becoming a professional actress, Sibel spent some time working as a pornographic actress, from 2001 to 2004 appearing in more than 15 adult movies, which helped her to significantly increase her net worth, and eventually pursue a “real” acting career. She became an actress by coincidence; a casting director noticed her at a shopping mall in Cologne in 2002, and invited her to audition for the film called “Head-On” (2004), directed by Fatih Akin. She won the main role of Sibel Güner, which was followed by her portrayal of Italienerin in the film entitled “Kebab Connection” later the same year.
Her next major roles came in 2006, when she featured as Leyla in the film “Winter Journey”, played Concierge at First Istanbul Hotel in the film “Fay Grim”, landed the role of Ruth Zilbermann in the film entitled “The Last Train”, and starred as Esma in the Turkish film “Eve Dönüş”, all of which added a considerable amount to her net worth. By the end of the decade, Sibel had been cast as Laura in the 2009 film “Playground”, after which she also appeared as Umay in the film entitled “When We Leave” in 2010. She also guest-starred in such TV series as “Nachtschicht”, “Gier”, “Homicide Unit Istanbul”, etc. Furthermore, in 2010 she was chosen to portray Sarah Brandt in the TV series “Tatort”, which aired until 2017.
