Witold Pyrkosz (born 24 December 1926 in Krasnystaw) - is a Polish actor. He is best known as Lucjan Mostowiak in a very popular Polish TV series "M jak miłość",[1] as Pyzdra in "Janosik", as Wichura in "Czterej pancerni i pies" and as Balcerek in "Alternatywy 4". His official birth certificate says that he was born on 1 January 1927 in Lwów; however, he stated that this was done purposely: the date was changed to delay his compulsory conscription for a year, while his mother registered his birthplace as Lwów because it "sounded more regal".
