Czech actress Klára Melíšková appeared as student in the Na Zábradlí Theatre in 1996, she was introduced on the stage of the Dejvické Theatre, where she has remained until today (as a permanent member since her graduation from the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague in 1999). Her first appearance in front of a camera was in two student films by Martin Dolenský, and her feature debut came with the role of a mysterious girl in The Past (1998). In the meantime, she showed her promising talent on stage in the lead role in Lysistrate (1996), and has been a distinctive personality of the Dejvické Theatre since then. After becoming its permanent member, she was cast in the System of Soothing. As for her other theatre work, Klára Melíšková has excelled in several adaptations of Russians classics (Brothers Karamazov, The Idiot), and she has recently starred in the successful The Man Without a Past and several other popular plays. However, her film and television career is also remarkable – after the series Dubbing Street, Fifty and Embarrassing, and Zkáza Dejvického divadla, the proud owner of three Czech Lion awards and contagious laughter also played in the Monsters of the Shore miniseries, Therapy, and the satirical comedy Vlastníci, where she portrayed an insufferable member of a home owners' association. She won her first Czech Lion for the role of Zdena in her only second feature film, Marek Najbrt's comedy Champions. In 2012, she captivated not only the Czech Film and Television Academy, but also the professional public by her performance in Bohdan Sláma's Čtyři slunce, which earned her a Czech Lion as well as a Czech Film Critics' Award. Her latest Czech Lion is for the role of Olga Hepnarová's mother in the almost eponymous biopic.
