Aldona Orman (born: September 29, 1968 in Przedborz, Poland) is a Polish actress.

For the Polish TV audience, Orman is mostly known for her roles in the popular TV series, Klan ('Clan'). She also appeared in the series Adam i Ewa ('Adam and Eve'), Plebania ('Presbytery') and many others. She currently works for the Kwadrat theater in Warsaw (since 1999).

Childhood & school years

Aldona was born in 1968 in Przedborz (a small town in central Poland), but when she was three months old her family moved to Konskie. She recalls her childhood memories as an idyllic time filled with the scent of meadows and vanilla. Aldona finished primary school and high school (I Liceum Ogolnoksztalcace) in Konskie. She was an exceptional student. "I was a very shy, quiet and humble person." - says Aldona. In high school, she wanted to be a doctor and study biology. Her favorite school subjects were biology and chemistry. Aldona's acting talents were discovered by her Polish teacher. Aldona represented her school at declamatory competitions, performed at school shows and participated in numerous cultural school activities. At one of the contests, a member of the jury asked Aldona if she'd considered studying performing arts. She denied, but that day marked her interest in acting. Interest soon turned into passion, and further on to profession.


Before high school graduation, Aldona knew she was going to become an actress. After matura examinations (taken on finishing high school), Aldona started her studies at the Department of the Puppetry Faculty in Ludwik Solski Academy for the Dramatic Arts in Wroclaw. As a student, she made her theater debut on February 10, 1989 in the Polish Theater in Wroclaw. She played the part of Martha Babakin in Anton Chekhov's Ivanov (directed by Jacek Bunsch). Aldona finished her studies in Wroclaw in 1991. Her final diploma performance was King Lear (May 30, 1991).

Acting career

By the end of her studies, Aldona was offered a part in The Fiddler on the Roof, but she refused it and went to her hometown to take care of her ill mother who later died. In August 1991, Aldona moved to Munich in Germany to live with her fiancé (whom she later married). For a few months, she worked for the "Wolna Europa" ('Free Europe') radio station as a news announcer. However, she left soon because she didn't feel comfortable there.

Between 1992 and 1996, she worked as a theater actress there. She played in Theater Labor, Modernes Theater, Werkstatt Theater and Pathos-Transport Theater in Munich. She got her first part in March 1992. Aldona usually played the parts of Slavic immigrants, e.g. Geisha in R.W. Fassbinder's "Eine Insel wie zehn Jahre" (1992); Donna in Frank Kafka's "Wedding Dreams" (1993; both plays directed by M. Killer); Ida in M. Sperr's "Freund fur's Leben" directed by P.Werhan (1993); the journalist in A. Schiller's "Mosfeld" directed by M. Killer (1993); Lucille and Marion in G. Buchner's "Dantos Tod" directed by B. Dabinus (1994) and Lisa in V. Ahnen & Ottl's "Fascho Park" directed by V. Ahnen (1995).

She also played in several films, among others: Donna in Als die Sonne Ihr Gesicht verbard (1992; directed by M. Pfeil), Anna in Zwischen uns (1995; directed by U. Binder), Julie in Pumuckl (1996; directed by J. Moschkowitz), Teresa in Wie wurden Sie entscheiden (1997; directed by R.Wacano) and Malgosia in Kopeke (1997; directed by K.Gremm).

In 1995, Aldona appeared in plays in the Teatr Ludowy ('the Folk Theater'*) in Cracow.

In 1999, Aldona returned to Poland and started working for Teatr Kwadrat in Warsaw. "I think I had some luck. A friend of mine invited me to a premiere performance in Teatr Kwadrat. I met the manager and was offered a job." She acted in various plays, including "Panna Tipdale" by Ray Conney and John Chapman ('Miss Tipdale'; 1999), "Colombina" by Carlo Goldoni (2003), "Dekorator" ('The Decorator') and "Okno na parlament" ('A View to the Parliament') and has appeared in plays by F. Falk, M. Dutkiewicz, W. Adamek, A. Kostenka and F. Zelber. She's currently performing in the following plays: "Nie teraz kochanie" ('Not Now, Darling') by Marcin Slawinski and "Sluga dwóch panów" ('Two Masters' Servant') by Waldemar Matuszewski.

Aldona appeared in Quo Vadis (2001), a film by Jerzy Kawalerowicz based on the famous book by Henryk Sienkiewicz (the winner of the literary Nobel Prize).

In 2004, Aldona acted in the Atlantis theater in Warsaw.

In 2009, Aldona was offered a role in a new TV series, Wrozki ('Fairies'). Unfortunately, the production was cancelled due to the financial crisis.

Current personal life
