Engin Altan Duzyatan: Resurrection Ertugrul (Dirilis Ertugrul) Changed My Life

Engin Altan Duzyatan, the main character in the Turkish TV series Resurrection Ertugrul (Dirilis Ertugul), stated that his role of Ertugrul Gazi changed his life. He stated that “It is very important to play Ertugrul Gazi who is the hero of our ancestry. Of course, this role has changed something in my life. I am the man who always tries to act carefully, but I am trying to live my private life more carefully since I took the role of Ertugrul Gazi.”


“The Love Towards Our Job Increases Our Work Enthusiasm”

“It makes us too happy to see how much people love our job and it also increases our work enthusiasm. We have seen this in our episode ratings but to see people’s energy directly with our eyes is much better. We have been trying to deserve this love. We work five days in a week and I hope that this love will increasingly continue to grow.


“There Is A Job Offer From Abroad But I Do Not Have Time”

“I have received some job offers from abroad but it is very difficult to do it due to differences concerning work order between Turkey and abroad. In Turkey, we can shoot films only during summer time. However, in abroad, films also require working during winter time. I do not have any time during winter time due to my tv series. Because of this reason, I could not take part in foreign project. I hope that I will do in the future. ”


I Would Prefer Seeing Turkish Projects’ Success in Abroad”

“I want to see Turkish actors and actresses in Hollywood projects but I would prefer seeing Turkish projects in Hollywood. I want to see the success of our own projects in Hollywood.”


“At this age, I have received a very good role. I received Ertugrul Gazi role when I was 35 years old and I have been playing in this tv series for 2 years. I don’t want to plan what will happen after Resurrection Ertugrul tv series. I usually want to look at what is happening now. I am trying to enjoy this time.”

We love seeing our favorite Turkish celebrities in their various Turkish drama roles, but sometimes it’s …


  1. I just love the series resurrection Etrugrul. I found it on Netflix from Sonoma California.

  2. Loving this series – to know it’s based on Islamic history makes the show valuable. The essence of the tribe Kayi is well documented with it’s loyalty to Islam.

    One criticism – try to make the battle a little more realistic and when one is in recovery – give them time to heal.

    Ultimately an amazing piece of Turkish drama.

    Proud of all that participate including the work behind scenes by support staff. Well done.

  3. HI!
    I loved it! Will there be a season 4?

  4. What is shocking is the truth about the TRAITORS—they have been the same throughout the history—same deceit—same deception—same ending—but they still do it.

  5. I m madly fan of tha drama as well as acting,plz facilite those who dont understand turky language thx

  6. My husband and I love this series and love finding out about and learning more about the Turkish history. This series is just mesmerizing and we can’t get enough of it. We have watch every show thru Season 3 and are looking now for Season 4 with English subtitles. We hope to see Season 4 soon. I would take more hours than I have to recommend this series. Everyone should try for themselves. The best part about reading the translation is that we have to sit still and pay attention with distractions of every day house things. This makes our time with the series very personal and just beautiful. Everything about the series (acting, scenery, love from the characters and for each other) is wonderous!

    Most magnificent series ever. Excellent writing, acting, cast, historical references. I have watched Seasons I & II on Netflix and would like to see II & IV with subtitles. Engin Altan Duzyatan is one of the best actors I’ve seen, as well as the rest of the cast.
    I am a retired teacher and have found this film riveting and inspiring.

  8. I’m from the U.S. & I have truly come to love this series. It has many moral messages, teaches that we are all children of God & teaches right from wrong. Thank you so much for the opportunity to see this wonderful series, learn about Turkish history and realistic insight about Islam.

  9. I am watching this on Netflix and I didn’t know that the Turkish make such brilliant films ( I am in the UK) I AM absolutely hooked on this, well directed, actors are excellent – I was going to cancel my Netflix but this has made me stay ! Another Turkish one to lookout for is Yunas Emre.

    I love and enjoy watching the series of this show on Netflix, however, Netflix only have season 1 and season with English subtitles. I’d like to see season 3, 4, and any seasons thereafter. I’ve requested Netflix twice to get the other seasons but to no avail. If all the series is on dvd, it would be nice to buy it. For now, I watch season 1 and 2 over and over and over again like thousand times.

    I’m very hooked on this show. Turkish films to me are amazing and so are actors. It also allows me to learn a few Turkish phrases.

    My wife and I have been watching with GREAT interest every episode of “Resurrection Erthugurl” reading every English sub-title to grasp the deepest dialogue. I should say that we are Jain (Hindu), from India, but after watching upto the end of Season 2, we Appreciate and understand that TRUTH is the same essence of EVERY religion. I am not surprised when Engin Altan Duzyatan, says that his life has changed after acting in this TV-serial, and that he is careful about his demeanor in public life, as people would surely see him as Erthugurl himself.
    We look forward to seeing Season 3 and 4 which hopefully will have english subtitles … our CONGRATULATONS to each and every actor in the series, as they have performed brilliantly and not to forget the DIRECTOR … WONDERFUL ALL THE WAY
