Çagatay Ulusoy embarks on a historical blockbuster

After the successful El protector, which is already in its third season on Netflix, the protagonist of Adını Feriha Koydum prepares for the historical character known as  Barbaros.

He is already used to great characters and ambitious productions after playing Hakan in The Protector, the first Turkish production series for Netflix, for three seasons. Characterizing for hours to get into the skin of his character is something that Çagatay Ulusoy has taken a liking to. So it has not been difficult for him to agree to embark on one of the biggest Turkish bets this year, the historical blockbuster Barbaros, about the Ottoman sailors.

The series has been in preparation for three years, as reported by social networks, and would be a very high-budget production of EsFilm for the Turkish chain TRT1. Barbaros aspires to be another great bet like Dirilis Ertugrul, from the same channel and who has been on the air for five years with great success.

In this case, the story is set in the 16th century, the stage in which the leader of the Turkish sailors fleet lived, Barbaros Hayretin Pasha, known as Barbarossa, one of the most important figures in the naval forces of that time.

As it has been known, the series would have a single season and the recordings would begin in two months. The protagonist of Adını Feriha Koydum, Medcezir and Içerde has already started the physical preparation for his character and is growing a beard. The actor had spent hours characterizing himself for his successful Hakan from The Protector, so it is no problem for him. In addition, Ulusoy is given to change his image often: we have seen him with a beard, without it, with longer hair, with a little more weight, etc.

Big return from Çagatay Ulusoy to television

This project would mean the return to television of Çagatay Ulusoy after several years dedicated to the production of the Netflix digital platform. And he does it in a big way because the actor has acquired such international renown that he no longer accepts any proposal. This is the one that has encouraged him to return to television in his country.

At the moment little else is known about this blockbuster. The rest of the cast is unknown, but it has been published that it will be directed by Taylan Biraderler and the writers are Cüneyt Aysan, Ozan Aksungur and Oğuz Ayaz.

At 29 years old, Çagatay Ulusoy does not have a large number of series and movies on his resume, but he has always had the wisdom to choose those that were going to become a success. In fact, he has worked on five series -the last two years in The protector- and started as a protagonist in 2011 in Adını Feriha Koydum. In cinema he has worked in two films. Although she studied Forest Sciences, in 2010 she decided to enroll in an acting school and studied with Vahide Perçin.
