Dagmara Domińczyk immigrated to the United States from Poland at the age of seven. Her father was a founding member of the labor union Solidarnosc which endeavored to bring down the totalitarian regime in Poland, and the family arrived in NYC as political refugees in 1983. Dag grew up in Flatbush, across from the street from a branch of the beloved Brooklyn Public Library, which she went to every day. After graduating from LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Arts, and subsequently from Carnegie Mellon’s prestigious School of Drama, Dagmara embarked on an acting career. For over twenty years now, she has worked in films, television, and on-and-off Broadway. Aside from acting, Dag’s other passion is writing. Her debut novel “The Lullaby of Polish Girls” was published by Random House in 2011 and she is currently working on a follow-up book. Dag lives in Montclair, NJ with her husband, actor Patrick Wilson, and their two teenage sons.
