In our fourth year we were all eager to find our own place, wondering what was coming next... Bogdan Hussakowski, the then director of the Jaracz Theatre in Łódź, offered me a job. I had lived in Krakow for ages, and all of a sudden I was to set off to the world... Two months later, Bogdan became the director of the Theatre in Krakow and asked: So, are you staying at home?
I have been at the Słowacki Theatre for ages, I am always amazed when I realise it’s been 25 years. I get attached to places, that's how it is.
I get attached to people... Now I know that a role is one thing, and a person is another.
I do not live in the past, I am curious about the future. I've heard somewhere that you're out of the game when you turn fifty – not necessarily, my appetite for acting never seems to end.
