Krystyna Janda (born 18 December 1952, in Starachowice, Poland) is a Polish film and theater actress best known internationally for playing leading roles in several films by Polish director Andrzej Wajda, including Man of Marble (Człowiek z marmuru, 1976) and Man of Iron (Człowiek z żelaza, 1981).

In 1982, Janda played the lead character in Ryszard Bugajski's film Przesłuchanie (Interrogation), which first premiered 7 years later in 1989, following the collapse of communism. Despite the film's late release, she garnered international acclaim for her performance, including winning Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival[1] and Polish Film Festival in 1990. In 1993, she was a member of the jury at the 43rd Berlin International Film Festival.[2]

Janda is also known for her leading role in the second episode of Dekalog series of Krzysztof Kieślowski.
