Pavel Liška, who belongs to the new generation of actors in the Czech Republic, has successfully found a way to combine his theatre background and his passion for film. Immediately after graduation from the Janácek Academy of Music and Performing Art in Brno, he began his career as an actor at the Ha-Theater in Brno, well known in the Czech Republic for its creative staging of contemporary plays. At the age of 26, he made his debut on screen in the award winning feature RETURN OF THE IDIOT. This Czech box-office hit was nominated for the European Film Award in the category Best Screenplay and was sold in more than 15 countries. Pavel regards his work with director-screenwriter Bohdan Sláma as one of the most creative collaborations of his career. Together, they shot two films, the award-winning WILD BEES and the recent feature SOMETHING LIKE HAPPINESS, which received the main prize at the 2005 San Sebastian International Film Festival. Pavel’s most recent role is the part of Jean Berlot in Jan Švankmajer’s latest film, LUNACY, a psychological horror story which made its international premier at the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2006.
