Guest TV Roles
Dominczyk is a daughter of Mirek Dominczyk, a leader in the Polish Solidarity movement. Dominczyk moved with her family from Kielce, Poland, to New York City when she was three, after her parents were expelled from their native Poland for her father's involvement with Amnesty International and then the Solidarity movement.
She is the younger sister of the actress Dagmara Dominczyk and is fluent in English and her native Polish.
Dominczyk became engaged to actor Scott Foley in 2006. During June 2007, the two wed in a private ceremony in Hawaii. In October 2009, it was announced that Dominczyk and Foley were expecting their first child together. They welcomed a daughter named Marley Addison.
In 2004, Dominczyk appeared in the short-lived television series The Help, which also starred Mindy Cohn and Antonio Sabàto, Jr..
