Writer apologises to actor over election support spat

Writer Jiří Stránský, one of the creators of the TV series Zdivočelá země (Land Gone Wild), has apologised to star Martin Dejdar, after publicly criticising him for supporting left-wing presidential candidate Miloš Zeman. Mr. Stránský, a former political prisoner, and the director of the series said they would no longer work with Mr. Dejdar on future projects. The actor said he had been stunned by the move. On Monday Mr Stránský retracted the statement, saying it had been written in anger.
