His parents wanted him to be a lawyer, he could earn a lot of money in law. But the native of Ostrava threw himself into acting and struggled with existential problems for years! Filmmakers only discovered him in 2007 for the Chetnické humoresky series, but he had to wait another 7 years for another well-paid TV chance. “It’s not handled like it was in the 90s, when actors who didn’t make series looked down on the others because they were acting about the serious stuff. We played about the serious things, but we took 12,000 crowns clean,” admitted the serial husband of Kristýna Ryška (37) aka Irena in Zlatá labuti.

I thought to myself that I won’t be able to start a family and have a child like this,” he recalled the difficult times during his engagement at the Theater Goose on a string. “It was hard to ask a girl out because I didn’t have money for dinner. That humiliated me terribly. I had the feeling that although I was doing my best in my profession, it was still not enough,” he revealed about himself in an interview for iDnes.cz.

So he took a huge leap into the unknown, decided to go to Prague on his own.
