Agnieszka Grochowska began her acting career while still a student at the prestigious State Academy of Theatrical Arts in Warsaw. Soon after her graduation, she was invited to join the ensemble of a Studio Theatre in Warsaw. Among her many roles, she played Constance in “Amadeus” opposite Zbigniew Zapasiewicz, for which she received a nomination for “Best Debut on Stage” in the 2001/2002 season from the Warsaw Felix Awards. On the big screen, Agnieszka has been equally successful. For her role in The Welts (Pręgi) by Magdalena Piekorz, she received a nomination for the Polish Film Award, the Orzel (The Eagle) in recognition of up-and-coming talent, as well as the European Film Awards’ Jameson People’s Choice Award as “Best Actress”.

Fluent in German, she also works regularly in German / Polish co-productions, such as in Jan Krüger‘s Unterwegs in 2005. Agnieszka has recently received the Tadeusz Lomnicki scholarship from the State Academy of Theatrical Arts in Warsaw, as an award to its graduates in recognition of their recent personal achievements.
