Jiří is a Czech actor. His lead role in Karel Janák’s Snowboarders—named the Most Popular Czech Film of the year at the Czech Lions awards in 2004—launched Mádl’s professional acting career. Following this success he appeared in three comedy films: Taming Crocodiles, Rafters and Rock Con Artists. Wanting to take a more serious role in film, he played a part in Tomáš Vorel‘s The Can. His first English-speaking role was in the 2008 film Bathory, directed by legendary Slovak director Juraj Jakubisko. He then starred in Night Owls and earned the Crystal Globe for Best Actor at the 2008 Karlovy Vary IFF, becoming the youngest-ever recipient of the award. His latest projects include work on the TV series Borgia and four films. He graduated from Comenius University in Prague, Faculty of Social and Media Communication and also studied at the New York Film Academy.
