Many of his beloved friends are going to take place at the ceremony.
CHP Köln President Mr.Günay Capan said that: “We are going to remember dear Tarık with his memories, his films, documentaries, poems and songs. He was a real mentor for many Turkish Actors and a very successful and unforgettable value for the Cinema History. The ceremony is unfortunately only for 2 thousand people in a saloon whereas 6 thousand Tarık Akan fans and friends wanted to attend the ceremony, we are so sorry for that. Zülfü Livaneli, Fazıl Say, Genco Erkal, Rutkay Aziz, Ataol Behramoğlu, Zeynep Oral, Nebil Özgentürk, Sunay Akın and Seranad Bağcan are coming together within this ceremony for Tarık Akan, who was a real Republic fan.”
Tarık Akan took part in 111 films and 4 TV Series. On the other hand, he has written also a book and published it in 2002 where he wrote his memories during his time once being in prison.
Turkish People characterize him also with the name “Ferit, the Groom” coming from the roles he had played especially in the unforgettable movie of “Hababam Sinifi” from writer Atif Yilmaz and Director Ertem Egilmez in which a class and the funny experiences of the class which never graduates were filmed and are still shown on TV.
We do also remember the green eyed handsome actor with our deepest respect.
