Magdalena Vasaryova

1. – Meryl Streep, Sophie’s Choice, 1982.  The Czech star of Dark Sun and  Cutting It Short, 1980  (33 screen roles in 32 years) was all set to be Sophie Zawistowska… until Meryl became free. And ran away with the film and the Oscar.  She even dubbed her Polish-accented French in the  French language version. Magdalena was later the Czech ambassador to Austria in 1990-93 and a 1999 Slovak Presidential candidate.
