Mejzlík: He wants to laugh at me
Even though he fell on the stairs and sprained his knee three days ago, Miloš Mejzlík (71) came from Prague to pay tribute to Eva Matalová. They not only played together for seven years in the Zlín theater, but also met in front of the camera during the filming of the series Very Fragile Relationships. “We were very close and kept in touch. She used to go to my cottage. I am very sad about her passing, but she still wants to laugh at me now. Because she had a strange, sarcastic sense of humor and knew how to make fun of herself,” he told the newspaper Aha! actor.
