Veteran theatre actor Zindulka receives lifetime achievement Thálie

Actor Stanislav Zindulka has received a prestigious Thálie award for lifelong excellence as a theatre actor. Mr. Zindulka, who is now 83, said at Saturday night's awards ceremony at the National Theatre that his most important act in the theatre had been to quit the relative security of an engagement in Brno when he was 57 for the uncertainty of working in Prague, where he is a long-term member of leading theatre Činoherní klub.
