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!

One of the reasons Cagatay inspires so much love and loyalty is the kindness he exudes in his characters and in real life. We have been a part of this fandom for some time and in addition to learning more about the layers of his work, it has been equally gratifying to get to know amazing people across the globe who also admire his work and life values. What better way to unite than through a shared love for someone who impacts the world in a positive way?

A few of his Instagram fan accounts got together to spearhead a global fundraising campaign for children with cancer and other special needs, which also coincided with Childhood Cancer Awareness month. It was a wonderful experience to collaborate with fans from Turkey, Pakistan, Romania, Iran, Argentina and Uruguay, and realize that borders and vested interests of sovereign nations become a distant second when we focus on love. We can thank Cagatay for being such a unifying force for #SocialChange with a #GlobalImpact. With donations big and small across many individual donors, we raised more than $3,500 for organizations such as Losev Turkey, UNICEF and St. Jude Children’s Hospital.


,During these difficult times of the COVID pandemic and the many ways it has hurt economies and communities, we are pleased to create a spot of positivity in Cagatay’s honor. Here is a video put together by Cagatay Ulusoy Worldwide Fans, one of Cagatay’s oldest fan accounts and a fellow collaborator for the campaign. The short video acknowledges all the donors and shares their messages for Cagatay. 

Happy Birthday, Cagatay, on behalf of the organizing team, the donors and all the fans who wishes to honor you.

Successful Birthday Fundraiser!
