Nadia Tereszkiewicz, the 27-year-old French actress, has been garnering accolades and admiration for her intense acting skills and unique beauty. As the muse of the house of Dior, she is set to present her latest film, “Rosalie“, directed by Stéphanie Di Giusto, at the Cannes Film Festival. Tereszkiewicz plays a bearded woman in the 19th-century drama, showcasing her ability to transform and captivate the audience.
Tereszkiewicz’s career took off after her breakthrough role in Dominik Moll’s 2019 film, “Seules les bêtes“. She has since showcased an impressive range of talents, from her passionate portrayal in Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s “Les Amandiers” to her intriguing role in François Ozon’s “Mon Crime“. Her dedication to her craft is evident in her ability to immerse herself in different languages and cultures for various roles, such as speaking Finnish and Arabic in “La Dernière Reine“, directed by Damien Ounouri and Adila Bendimerad.
Drawing on her background as a professional dancer, Tereszkiewicz brings her physicality and discipline to her acting. She spent 14 years dancing up to eight hours a day, an experience she describes as “wonderful years“. This rigorous training has given her the resilience and courage to face challenges in her acting career.
For her role in “Rosalie“, Tereszkiewicz had to undergo extensive makeup, waking up at 4am to have each hair applied individually to her body. Director Stéphanie Di Giusto praises her dedication, stating that she believes Tereszkiewicz’s courage stems from her dance background and its demanding nature. Both Di Giusto and Tereszkiewicz’s friend, actress and director Monia Chokri, describe her as “solar“, highlighting her intelligence, humor and tenderness.
Tereszkiewicz views each of her projects as a learning experience, both professionally and personally. She speaks fondly of her time spent in Madagascar filming Robin Campillo’s “L’Île rouge” and her immersive experience in Algeria for “La Dernière Reine“. These experiences have shaped her as an actress, allowing her to bring authenticity and depth to her roles.
Despite her success, Tereszkiewicz remains humble and grateful for the opportunities she has had. She attributes her strong work ethic to her Finnish mother’s positive outlook and her Polish father’s love of cinema.
