Lots happening with Cagatay!

On the eve of Cagatay’s birthday on September 23, Ranini broke the news the Cagatay has signed on with OGM Pictures for a new series titled Yali Capkini (“The Kingfisher”). It is inspired by a true story and written by Kemal Hamamcioglu. There are rumors that it is being prepared for channel tv8, but we do not have confirmation from the channel yet. His co-star is also yet to be announced. 

In the past, Cagatay’s name has been involved with Marasli (Burak Deniz played the lead) and Barbaroslar (Engin Altan Duzyatan is playing the lead), but eventually did not come to fruition. Both the actual eventual leads are Cagatay’s co-stars from Medcezir and Anadolu Kartallari, respectively. 

If this proposed project does happen, this will be Cagatay’s return to a dizi on public tv since his turn as Sarp Yilmaz in Icerde, 2016-2017. In September 2020, he had a cameo in Menajerimi Ara, an Ay Yapim production being directed by Ali Bilgin, who also directed Cagatay in Medcezir and Delibal

Successful Birthday Fundraiser!

With donors from more than 10 countries, Cagatay Ulusoy North America co-ordinated fundraiser for Cagatay’s 31st birthday on September 23 was very successful. With several hundred dollars sent to various childhood cancer organizations around the globe, the fans showed their love for Cagatay by standing next to the kids in need. Many donors sent a birthday message his way and we compiled them into a video.

Spotted With Friends

On September 28th, Cagatay’s friend Umut Kisa shared this photo via Instagram story.

They are out for the night. From left to right are Mustafa Mert Koc, Umut Kisa, Cagatay Ulusoy, Mali Simsek and Engin Aykanat.

He was also sighted in a chance meeting with actor Halit Ergenc, where Cagatay made a hasty exit without answering any reporter questions. Halit was asked about Cagatay later and he said:

Last week, Cagatay’s friend Mustafa Mert Koc posted a short video of the two guys playing a casual game of basketball. One cannot see Cagatay very clearly, but fans can make out his basketball prowess!

Yesilcam Is Back!

Earlier this week, fans received the happy news that Season 2 of Yesilcam will drop on BluTV on Thursday, October 28. It will release the first five episodes that day, presumably with the remaining five coming once a week. The trailer looks amazing, as the cast leaps forward in time to 1969 into the 70s, with new challenges for them to overcome. Will Semih Ates remain the hero figure we came to love in Season 1?

The filming for Season 2 concluded in the early summer and fans had been anxiously waiting. On a post on instagram where Cagatay shared the trailer on his profile, director Cagan Irmak had some wonderful things to say about Cagatay and his craft.

This young man is truly an icon in so many ways and we are proud to be supporting his journey. We will resume our series/ episode reviews once Yesilcam starts streaming. Until then, enjoy!

On Friday April 17, StarTV is starting reruns of Medcezir, an internationally award winning romantic drama led by the talented young actors Cagatay Ulusoy and Serenay Sarikaya. Loosely based on Fox Network’s The O.C., Medcezir is a stylish, modern series that deviated significantly from the original, giving it a life and rhythm of its own.

Yaman (Cagatay Ulusoy) is a boy who was born on the wrong side of the tracks with one hand always on the door, having never learnt the true meaning of love. After he’s adopted by the Serez family and welcomed into the wealthy enclave of fictitious Altinkoy, Yaman becomes the anchor that pulls a core group of friends together. Mira Beylice (Serenay Sarikaya) falls in love with the handsome Yaman, while Mert Serez (Taner Olmez) finds love with his childhood crush and Mira’s best friend, Eylul (Hazar Erguclu). What might seem like a light teen romance is masterfully transformed under the talented producers of Medcezir, which captures many adult themes concerning loyalty, love, acceptance, ambition and integrity.

Originally on air 2013 – 2015 with a stunning production featuring an all-star cast, airtight script from a team led by Ece Yorenc, and an astounding soundtrack from Toygar Isikli (here), Medcezir became the 5th most successful Turkish TV series in terms of net sales. In addition, Cagatay and Serenay revealed their formidable musical talents by lending their voices for many of the songs on the show. We also see many young stars in the show who have gone on to make a bigger name for themselves since such as Aybuke Pusat, Ozge Gurel, Miray Daner and more.

Check out the extended trailer for the show below and find out more about Cagatay Ulusoy on any of the social platforms for Cagatay Ulusoy North America. Medcezir will air on StarTV on Fridays at 8 pm Turkish time.
