Born 1989 in Ostrava, where I studied acting at Janáčkova konzervatoř. Then I continued my studies in Prague at DAMU, Department Of Alternative And Puppet Theatre. For six years (2014-2020) I’ve been an ensemble member of Komorní scéna Aréna, and was nominated twice for the Thálie Award. Since 2020 I am an ensemble member of The National Theatre in Prague. Besides regular shows I took part in many intermedia projects, for instance the film The Eyewitness (Očitý svědek, 2021). Throughout my career I did numerous collaborations with many alternative and independent theatres, for example A-studio Rubín, or X10 Theatre. For couple years I’ve been travelling all over Europe with circus group Long Vehicle Circus, doing acrobacy and stunts on stilts. My last movie role was in the biography film Zátopek (2021).
