Elżbieta Czajkowska as Krysia in “Nie ma mocnych” (1974)
We see Krysia for the first time in a TV show watched by Witia and Jadźka Pawlak. The girl tells of a marriage fraud who stole her money and disappeared. It was then that Anya’s parents began to suspect that their daughter’s lover might be a fraud. Cressia eventually appears in the backyard of the homes of Kargola and Pavlac to discover the impostor. However, it turns out that Zink is not a cheater, but she is well aware of the situation with a double cheating woman.
Interestingly, Czajkowska played the same role in the series “Droga” from 1974. She appeared in the penultimate episode titled “Rysopis sedodziciel”.
