Fifty years ago, Andrei Konchalovsky’s film “The Noble Nest” was released, in which Beata Tyszkiewicz played a major role. Since then, more than a dozen actors and actresses from Poland have starred in Soviet and Russian cinema.

By the time of filming in the USSR, Beatu Tyszkiewicz had long been known in Poland as a diverse actress, and she made her film debut at the age of sixteen in the film “Revenge”. In 1961, on the set of Samson, Beata met the director Andrzej Wajda, in 1965 became his life partner and starred in two other Wajda films – Ashes (1965) and Everything for Sale (1968).
On the set of Noble Nest, Tyszkiewicz actively communicated with colleagues, captivating the men around her. When Sergei Mikhalkov invited Beata to his place, everyone considered it a duty to care for the lady. Konchalovsky was the most active, and an affair even began between him and the artist. Lovers exchanged letters, Andrei tried to marry Beate, but she refused him – despite the fact that after returning to Poland, the actress divorced her husband.

In addition to the role of Varvara Pavlovna Lavretskaya in The Noble’s Nest, Beata Tyszkiewicz became the personification of the heroines of Polish cinema: Maria Valevskaya (Marysya and Napoleon), Evelina Ganskaya (Bolzak’s Great Love) and Isabella Lentskaya (Doll, for the Soviet audience) the novel of Boleslav Prus). In 1984, she starred in Igor Gostev’s film “European History”. Even the President of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev admired the beautiful green-eyed polka, calling her “our famous actress.”

In 1992, Tyszkiewicz appeared in the Polish-Russian film “The Beautiful Stranger” based on Alexey Tolstoy’s story “Retribution” (directed by Jerzy Hoffmann). In 2001, the film was released by the Belarusian director Mikhail Ptashuk “In August of the 44th …”, where the actress played the role of Mrs. Grolinsky. In 2006, at the XV International Film Forum “Golden Knight” Tyszkiewicz received a gold medal named after Sergei Bondarchuk “For Contribution to World Cinema”. Her most recent role in Russian cinema is Marta Lipinskaya in the television movie Oleg Gaza “Martha Line” (2014) about the besieged Leningrad.

However, the most popular Polish actress in the territory of the former USSR, of course, is Barbara Brylska. After the release of the picture “The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath!” (1976) she became beloved by every Soviet man. The fragile girl that Brylska played on the screen could not help but like the colleagues in the shoot. In life, the actress was strong and uncompromising. Rather, she chose life companions, and not they her.
In 1977, the filmmakers, including Barbara Brylska, became laureates of the USSR State Prize in the field of cinematography. And although the actress also has high Polish awards – the “Cross of Merit” (1975) and the cavalier cross of the Order of the Renaissance of Poland (1985), some patriots still remember her precisely receiving the Soviet State Prize. As Barbara Brylska said more than 15 years ago, “your State Prize put an end to my work at home – I basically began to work abroad: in Germany, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Russia. In Poland, they almost did not give me roles; I gradually fell out of this artistic circle. ”

The actress embodied Nadezhda Shevelyova in the continuation of The Irony of Fate, which was shot in 2007 by Timur Bekmambetov. Earlier, in 2001, Brylska played the role of generals Yepanchina in Roman Kachanov’s film “Down House,” a modern interpretation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novel “Idiot”. In 2008, she played Rosa Karlovna, the nanny of little Kolchak in the film “Admiral”, and in 2014, the fairy in the Russian fantasy “The Secret of the Four Princesses” (so far the last film with her participation). In recent years, the actress rarely appears in public and in the media.

Among the Polish actresses of the new generation who have played in Russian cinema, it is worth mentioning Marta Klubović (the main female role in the series “What the dead man said”), Magdalen Meltzacz (pannochka in “Taras Bulba”), Magdalen Lamparsk (“Not Just Now”, about love a Polish girl and a Russian soldier in Poland in 1953, according to the story of Vladimir Voinovich), Edith Herbus (beloved psychic in the TV series “Wolf Messing: Seen Through Time”).

However, the most sought-after, of course, is Carolina Grushka, who in 2000 made her debut in Russian Riot by Alexander Proshkin, a film based on Pushkin’s works “The Captain’s Daughter” and “The History of Pugachev”.
Since then, the actress has played in the films “In August of the 44th”, “Break Point” (2004), “On the Way to the Heart” (2007), “Oxygen” and “Short Circuit” (2009), “Dance of Delhi” (2012) and Salvation (2014). Carolina Grushka is now one of the leading Polish actresses. She successfully combines filming with work at the Warsaw National Theater, where the actress came after graduating from the theater academy. Carolina emphasizes that the theater is in the first place for her, and often confesses her love for Russian literature.
