Can Yaman says that in his family they speak Albanian
Can was invited along with his colleague, Demet Ozdemir, and during the interview, he mentioned that his family speaks Albanian, although he himself has not learned the language.

"On my father's side, I have Albanian origins from Prishtina. My grandfather grew up in Prishtina, and my grandmother in Skopje. In 1959, we came to Istanbul. Relatives from my father's side speak Albanian. Cousins from the paternal side. Since I haven't met them, I don't know them.

Relatives like my father's uncles, my grandmother's brothers. They speak Albanian. Even my grandfather and grandmother speak Albanian. In fact, there are times when they speak Albanian. But I grew up more on my mother's side. And there, we didn't speak Albanian; we only spoke Turkish. That's why I don't know Albanian.

Even my father doesn't know, my uncle knows. He was born in Prishtina. There are 5 brothers; the others were born in Turkey after him. I went to Albania, Tirana, and stayed there for almost a month. In Albania, everyone knew Italian, and I spoke Italian," said the actor.
