His portrayal of Stawrogin in Dostoyevsky's "The Possessed" established him as a leading man and led him to the role that would propel him to Polish stardom: Frederic Chopin in "Chopin, Desire of Love".His renown would only grow following his tour de force performance as Pope John Paul II in the two part Italian production - "Karol the Man Who Became Pope" and "The Pope - the Man".

His nuanced portrayal of the Gestapo officer Lars Rainer in the hugely popular Polish television series "Days of Glory" won him acclaim and accolades, while his comedic performances on the hit show "Przepis na Zycie" (A Recipe for Life) endeared him to an ever widening fan base. In addition to having won numerous awards at international film festivals in Italy, China and Ukraine, Adamczyk was honored with the prestigious Gloria Artis medal for outstanding contributions to Polish culture.Adamczyk has also had over 800 radio roles and is an accomplished voice actor.
