Jan Hájek – A Brief Profile

Jan Hájek has been a part of our Eurochannel screen for a long time now, with notable roles like Josef Němec in Audacity, and Söhnel in Private Lives. We present a brief profile on him.

Jan Hájek is primarily a theater actor. He comes from Moravská Třebová. He took part in Jirásek's Hronov in a seminar by director Sergei Fedotov, who enabled him to assist in rehearsing his production of The Master and Margaret in Hradec Králové (1998).

In the years 2001-2002, he studied four semesters at the JAMU in Brno and performed at the Polárka Theater. There, he attracted the attention of director Juraj Deák, who cast him in the title role in his production of Hamlet (2002) at the Moravian-Silesian National Theater in Ostrava. Jan Hájek got engaged here and embodied a number of great roles: e.g., Helicon in Caligula (2002), the character of the autistic Elling in Hellstenius' play Elling, and many others.

In 2006, he won the Thalia Award in the Talent of the Year category. Since then, he has performed in drama at the National Theater and is a guest at the Drama Club, but also at the Moravian-Silesian National Theater in Ostrava. In 2008, he starred in Tomáš Vrána's film DRACI.
Until recently, Jan Hájek was mainly a theater actor. In 2015, he drew attention to himself in the award-winning film The Snake Brothers, then accepted a larger role in Doktor Martin, and now is a regular on Czech TV screen with shows like Ordinace v ruzové zahrade 2, Sever, and Zivé terce.
