Portrait of a Character – Noemy Chelenska
Noemy Chelenska started off as just a sounding board for Milena.
As a part of Rick Daniels meeting Milena Chelenska, he is originally hit by a car. Milena, a doctor, thinks she needs to treat him, but that’s unnecessary, given that his blood is spiked with stem cell growth accelerator. As she watches him rapidly heal without any intervention on her part, someone had to take pictures and be the person who she would bounce ideas off. Enter Noemy, who gets her name from a family friend.
Noemy is also seen in Day of the Dead; she’s only fourteen when Tripp Tucker and others liberate Dachau.
Noemy is played by Czech actress Klara Issova.
I like to try to get actors of the same or a close ethnicity and Issova certainly fits the bill. It’s a bonus that she was in Anne Frank: The Whole Story, and plays a Holocaust survivor.
Brittle and damaged, Noemy and Pawel are constitutionally incapable of getting together, or so it seems. Even in the late 1960s, after having known each other for over twenty years, she still can’t call him first. They are at a stalemate until Rick arrives and turns their lives upside-down.
Noemy’s only known relationship is with Pawel. They meet after their liberation from Dachau when they are waiting, with Milena and Mrs. Klinghofer, at a transit camp. This puts their meeting after the end of Day of the Dead.
There are no impediments to Noemy existing in the Mirror Universe.
As an artist (she is a portrait photographer), she would be in an elite class and could be rather wealthy indeed.
“What do you mean to do? We do not; I will not have you speed her along.”
For a character who started off as little more than a sounding board, she lives through the Velvet Revolution and even captures it in pictures.
Not bad for the ol’ gal, eh?
