Çağatay Ulusoy admitted that he is very excited about the upcoming premiere.

By the way, in the series Çağatay will play two different characters – the ordinary Istanbul guy Hakan, who does not think about something heroic until he is confronted with the fact that Istanbul is threatened by dark forces, and his distant ancestor, a warrior from the times of Sultan Fatih, who will appear in flashbacks.
