Polish actress Alicja Bachleda was actually born in Mexico, where he dad worked as a geologist. She began her acting career at a young age and at 15 landed the lead role in the 1999 film Pan Tadeusz for the legendary Polish director Andrzej Wajda.

In talking about the rape scene from the movie, Alicja said, “I didn’t even feel the pain when I got hit by accident by my partner and my lips were split open and I was bleeding, I didn’t even realize that because I was so into the character and in those scenes you really want it to seem very, very real.”
Alicja’s current film, Ondine, is a bout an Irish fisherman who thinks he catches a mermaid. She acts in the flick alongside her “real life” partner Colin Farrell. The movie premiered at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center in New York City last week.
