DANUTA STENKA
DANUTA STENKA

The Grand Lady of the Polish stage and at the same time one of the most beautiful, charming, witty and gifted versatile actresses, who is neither afraid of the passage of time nor of playing old and ugly women.

Born in Gowidlin in Kashubia, she graduated from the Actor’s School in Gda?sk where she also made her DEBUT at the Wybrze?e Theatre, playing in: “?lub” (Wedding), “Betlejem polskie” (Polish Bethlehem), “Romeo i Julia” (Romeo and Juliet). She acted at the Wspó?czesny Theatre in Szczecin and at the Nowy Theatre in Pozna?. Since 1991 in Warsaw, she has been associated with the Rozmaito?ci Theatre, the Dramatyczny Theatre, and recently the Narodowy.   She  has played her breakthrough screen role in “Prowokator” (Provocateur) and then “?agodna” ( A Gentle Woman), “Odwied? mnie we ?nie” (Visit Me in My Dream)).  In 2003 for her part of George Sand  in  “Chopin – Pragnienie mi?o?ci” (CHOPIN. DESIRE FOR LOVE) directed by Jerzy Antczak  she won the Best Actress Award at the International Film Festival in Kiev and the Polish Orze? (Eagle) Award . In the same year she was also awarded the Golden Duck for the Best Actress of the Year.

Her greatest hit so far (and a big sellout success of 2004) is definitely “Nigdy w ?yciu” (NEVER AGAIN), a romantic comedy directed by Ryszard Zatorski, based on a novel by Katarzyna Grochola, where Stenka starred opposite Artur ?mijewski.

In the same year she also scored three prizes for her guest appearance at the Wspó?czesny Theatre in Wroc?aw, where she superbly handled the part of Bradshaw in H. Barker’s “Zwyci?stwo” (Victory).

She has played in the TV series, e.g. “Bo?a podszewska” (Divine Lining) and “Ekstradycja III” (Extradition III), as well as in countless TV theatre spectacles. Her interpretations have always struck the chord with viewers by whom she is universally admired.
