He is the son of Stefania Mędrzak. He later did acting studies and has played a few movie roles. But he has always been focused rather on theatre.
In 1996, he has been an art director of the Ochota theater in Warsaw.
He didn"t really want to play Staś. He went to the auditions because he was interested in technical aspects of cinematography.
Some time after being chosen, he wanted to decline, but the wife of the movie"s director persuaded him to stay.
