Ronin actor dies after falling off bridge

Prague -Czech-American actor Jan Triska has died at the age of 80 after falling off Prague’s historic Charles Bridge, Czech media reported on Monday.

Triska fell off the bridge on Saturday and was rescued from the Vltava river by two tourists on a boat but died in hospital on Sunday, according to the website of the DNES daily.

Czech firefighters said he had jumped while emergency services said the fall was accidental.

Triska, who played the sniper who shot Larry Flynt in compatriot Milos Forman’s 1996 The People vs Larry Flynt, and the Russian gunman in John Frankenheimer’s Ronin in 1998, was born in the former Czechoslovakia in 1936.
