Joanna Kulig’s younger sister is the star of “Na Wspólnej”. “I don’t want to be compared to her”

Joanna Kulig is one of the most popular Polish actresses, but she avoids publicity and does not let the media into her private life. For this reason, few people know that her sister, 5 years younger than her, followed in her professional footsteps. Although they have different surnames, the visual similarity means that they are often considered twins. Do you know who I’m talking about?

achieved huge success not only in the domestic but also in the foreign film industry. The breakthrough in her career came with her role in the Oscar-nominated “Cold War” by Paweł Pawlikowski, but she appeared on the foreign market much earlier, playing alongside world stars. Her credits include productions such as “Sponsoring”, “The Woman in the Fifth” and “The Lost Time”, and recently she appeared in “Knox Goes Away” with Al Pacino and Michael Keaton.

Joanna Kulig’s younger sister is also an actress. What productions has he produced?

Despite his unwavering popularity, Kulig avoids the limelight and avoids topics related to his private life in interviews. For this reason, not everyone knows that they have four equally talented siblings. – I have very good relationships with my entire family. Of course, there are misunderstandings, but we can always count on each other – in “Gazeta Krakowska”. Most of her relatives are involved in music, but her sister, who is 5 years younger than her, decided to follow in her footsteps.

Justyna Schneider is also a graduate of the Krakow Theater School. After graduating, she decided to stay in the city, working with the Bagatela Theater and the Stu Theater. However, this does not mean that he does not appear on the screen. Viewers may associate her with productions such as “Plebania”, “Zamosconi się uszy”, “Diagnoza” or “Diagnoza”.

Due to their different surnames, for a long time few knew that the actresses were related by blood, and their visual similarity was most often considered a coincidence. It turns out that after the wedding, she decided to keep her maiden name, while her younger sister, when entering the industry, decided to adopt a stage name. All this to avoid being judged through the prism of Joanna’s successes. – Since our names sound similar, I decided to adopt the artistic pseudonym, our great-grandmother’s surname Schneider, so that we would not be confused – in “Dzień Dobry TVN”.

They support each other privately and professionally. How does Schneider evaluate her older sister’s success?

Although both of them are doing great in the industry, Joanna Kulig appears in the media much more often. However, her younger sister is not jealous and supports her career development. She believes that each of them has an individual path that she consistently follows. Despite their kinship and many similarities, they are completely different people and have something different to offer viewers. – I’m younger and I’m used to the fact that I’m far from my sister’s achievements. After all, she started acting first and, therefore, has much more artistic experience. I’m only at the beginning of my career. I have time to earn myself and my name, said Schneider a few years ago.

In turn, in “Dzień Dobry TVN” she admitted that although Kulig is her great authority and inspiration, she does not like to be compared to her. She works for her own name and would like to be perceived only through the prism of her own successes or failures. – I am an actress, I love my sister, I am extremely proud of her, I am glad that she is successful, I admire her for her persistence and diligence – she said. – But sometimes I tell myself that I would like to be the Justyna Schneider who is not compared to her sister – said the actress.
