Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo will appear alongside famous actress Angelina Jolie in a Turkish television series about a Syrian family fleeing the civil war as refugees. The series, called Hayat Koprusu, will be shown in Turkey, the Middle East and Latin America. Filming will occur in the south-east of Turkey near the Syrian border and will focus around a Syrian family escaping from the civil war as refugees.
“We will begin filming in the first week of April, the series is about the plight of a refugee family and what they go through,” director Eyup Dirlik told Turkish Football. “There will be appearances from actors and actresses from all over the world including Cristiano Ronaldo, Angelina Jolie and Nancy Ajram.” Ronaldo featured for the full 90 minutes in Real’s 3-1 Champions League victory against Italian side Napoli on Wednesday evening at the Bernabeu.
On Wednesday, Ronaldo broke Ryan Giggs’ Champions League assist record. The Portuguese star played in Kroos for his side's second of the night, which edged him ahead of former Manchester United team-mate Ryan Giggs to the top of the all-time Champions League assist charts with 31 in total.
