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!

Cagatay Ulusoy will be turning 30 years old in ten days, on September 23, 2020. For a person so young, Cagatay has impacted the lives of so many through the roles that he has played and how he has chosen to live his life.

There is very little doubt that Cagatay is a standout artiste in his peer group, being one of the best ambassadors for Turkey in the entertainment space. His humility and grounded way of life is inspiring in looking inward and focusing on self-growth, being mindful in career choices and philanthropic endeavors.

Over the years, Cagatay has supported a number of philanthropic causes, namely childhood cancer and other medical needs, environmental preservation, orphanages and other need-based programs centered on children.

In an effort to honor this exemplary young man and the ways he has promoted positive #SocialChange, a few of his most active fan accounts on Instagram and Twitter have collaborated to create a birthday fundraiser whereby fans can support any of the four selected organizations (can be their local chapter) in honor of Cagatay. Just share the receipt with any of the organizers to be counted towards the tally for #GlobalImpact created by Cagatay’s fans.

We are also collecting a short blurb about why a donor is choosing to support Cagatay’s fundraiser, which will be put into a video compilation to be shared with Cagatay and his manager. Donations will have to be made by September 21st to be counted.

You can get access to the flyer for the fundraiser here.

To make donations, you can go to these following links:

UNICEF – COVID-19 Efforts

LOSEV – Foundation for Children with Leukemia

WWF Turkiye

St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital

Cagatay’s milestone birthday is a great occasion for his fans to come together and support programs for a better world.
