Biography[edit]

Fischerová was born in Prague. Her father, theatre director Jan Fischer (or Fišer), was imprisoned in Theresienstadt and Auschwitz concentration camps during the World War II.[2] Her mother was a dancer.

She studied at JAMU in Brno,[3] however, she didn't finish her studies due to an engagement in the Prague's Drama Club in the late 1960s. She was sacked from the theatre during the period of normalization (in 1973).[4] In the 1970s, she continued her career in the Jiří Wolker Theatre, however, she left the theatre after the birth of her son Kryštof, whose father is the composer Petr Skoumal.[5] In the 1980s, she worked as a freelance actress.[4] During her acting career, she collaborated with significant personalities of Czech cinema, such as Evald Schorm, Antonín Máša, Jaromil Jireš, and Karel Kachyňa.[6]

In 1989, she signed the petition "Několik vět" (A Few Sentences) prepared by the informal civic initiative Charter 77.[4] At that time, she began participating in civic activities.[4]

In 2002, Fischerová ran for a seat in the Parliament of the Czech Republic as an independent candidate running on the slate of the Unie svobody-DEU (Freedom Union – Democratic Union). She was elected, however, she didn't succeed in the next election, this time to the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic.[7]

Fischerová was one of the three female candidates in the 2013 Czech presidential election,[8] along with Zuzana Roithová and Jana Bobošíková. She was supported by Green Party.[9] Her team gathered around 65.000 approved signatures from citizens and met the quorum of minimum of 50,000.[10] In the 1st round of the election, she placed 7th with 3,23% (166 211 votes).[11] She didn't qualify for the second round.

She is a member of the board of the Dagmar and Václav Havel Foundation VIZE 97, the Czech Helsinki Committee, and a member of the Amnesty International.[12] Along with the singer Marta Kubišová and film director Jan Kačer, she helps to organize the series of annual advent charity concerts broadcast by the Czech Television.[12]
