Tereza Vítů (1992) is a Czech actress, living in Prague. She studied in the Musical Theatre Department of the Prague conservatory where her teachers included Kateřina Vlková, Veronika Žilková, Milan Kačmarčík and Jan Potměšil.
While still at school she joined the South Bohemian Theatre where she portrayed a number of roles and worked with directors including Thomas Zielinski, Ivan Krejčí, Lukáš Brutovský, Martin Glaser and Petr Zelenka.
With her colleagues from the Jihoceske Theatre she has played at the Revolving Theatre in Český Krumlov, where she portrayed Constance in The Three Musketeers and Maid Marian in Robin Hood.
After four years at Jihoceske Theatre she returned to her hometown of Prague to focus on her work in front of the camera. Still in cooperation with the Jihoceske Theatre, she has also worked with the Bodyvoice Band Ensemble and in September 2017 she starts rehearsals with Městská divadla pražská.
She got her first big break in Bez doteku (Without a Touch, M. Chlupáček, 2013) where she portrayed Jolana. She then played the role of Hana in the drama Hany (M. Samir, 2014), worked on the short film Furiant (O. Hudeček, 2015) which won The Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, and on the short film Ďábel čeká na smrt (The Devil Awaiting Death, O. Růžička, 2017).
She regularly works with FAMO and FAMU International, including on English-speaking films. Television viewers will know her as Alena Koukalová from Ulice and she has also appeared in music videos by groups including Chinaski, Pub Animals, Obří Broskev and DiCaprio.
In her spare time she enjoys running, dancing, rock climbing, hiking and swimming. Since 2014 she has also been working as a personal trainer and fitness instructor.
Her love of music and singing inspired her to form the band Cuvée in 2015. In cooperation with pianist Jan Ales (Laco Deczi Group, Klara Vytiskova) she is the principal songwriter in the group.
"When I play with my band or write songs, I find the freedom I need to function. Through acting I have had the opportunity to get to discover the world from different perspectives and I realise better who I want to be and who I don't."
