Piotr Adamczyk
Piotr Adamczyk (b. March 21, 1972 in Warsaw) is a Polish actor.
He portrayed Karol Wojtyła, who later became Pope John Paul II, in the movie Karol: A Man Who Became Pope and its sequel Karol: The Pope, The Man.
Since his early childhood he knew he wanted to become an actor, and therefore very quickly he began chasing his dreams. As early as at the age of 14 he began to interpret leading roles in theatres and films. He attended the prestigious Machulski youth theatre group in Warsaw. Thanks to the international scholarship that he was granted, he was able to cross the Iron Curtain and attend international theatre workshops in the UK and Germany. He continued his acting education by attending the Theatre Academy in Warsaw and received his training from some of the greatest Polish acting legends such as Gustaw Holoubek and Zbigniew Zapasiewicz. During his second academic year (Poland was now independent), he won a scholarship from the Soros Foundation which permitted him to attend the British American Drama Academy for one year, where he performed Hamlet at the end of his stay there.
Once he graduated from the Theatre Academy, he was hired by one of the best theatres in Warsaw, the Teatr Współczesny, where for 10 years he climbed the ladder of the Polish theatre world. His career in the film industry however began much more intensively. His role of Stawrogin in Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s The Possessed starts Piotr’s long list of leading roles. The breakthrough in his career was his part as Frédéric Chopin in the film "Chopin - Desire of Love"- with this role he joined the club of Polish stars.
The climax of his popularity was reached when he played the title role of another Polish historical figure in a two part Italian movie- "Karol the Man who became Pope" and "Karol: The Pope-The Man". The movie was viewed by several dozen million viewers, and made him popular in Italy, Latin America and many other Catholic countries.
Despite appearances, this was a very difficult moment in Piotr's career because he became so intensely associated with that role, that there was fear he wouldn't be able to break free from the association. Piotr hasn't stopped surprising and even shocking his viewers and consequently has played diametrically different parts. A ranking Gestapo officer, a closet gay man in the hit "Ladies" and many other box office hit comedies are a testimony to versatility and comic abilities. To this day he plays as a guest star at several theatres such as the National Theatre and the up-and-coming Imka Theatre in Warsaw.
Piotr also managed to take advantage of his popularity abroad to play at the Sala Uno Theatre in Rome, in Italian. He also played in Liliana Cavani’s movie "Einstein" and in the Portuguese production "Second Life".
He has under his belt over 800 radio roles and around 100 theatre, television and film parts. He is also appreciated for his dubbing roles. He is the Polish voice of Ben Stiller, Eddy Murphy, Daniel Day-Lewis and Adam Sandler. In animated films he played among others the giraffe in "Madagascar", Zigzag McQueen in "Cars" and Syndrome in "The Incredibles".
He has received many prestigious awards in Poland and abroad and he is most appreciative of awards based on public opinion. In 2011 he was awarded the most popular Polish actor once again. However he gets most of his satisfaction from the fact that films in which he plays always hold top positions at the Polish box office.
