His friendship with actor Ondřej Sokol was one of the pivotal moments that led actor Martin Finger to theatre and, later on, to studies at DAMU, even though, as he says, he wanted to be a police investigator for a long time. His wish was granted at least in the Nineties series where he played police captain Plíšek. Still, theatre is the true foundation for him. How did he battle his lack of self-confidence as an actor, and where did a key encounter with Professor Ivan Vyskočil while studying at DAMU point his career? He says that and much more in a video interview with Vojtěch Klinger.
He was a member of the Divadlo Komedie troupe in 2002–2012 and then joined Prague’s Činoherní klub. He has been its artistic director since the 2020/2021 season.
He has won two Alfréd Radok Awards for leading roles in Thomas Bernhard’s World Fixer and Franz Kafka’s The Trial. He was also nominated for the Theatre Critics’ Award, the Thalia Award and the Czech Lion Award.
He received the Czech Film Critics’ Award for his leading role in The Lake.
