BIOGRAPHY:

Goran Visnjic was born on September 9, 1972 in Sibenik, Croatia, Yugoslavia. He is an actor and producer, known for ER (1994), Ice Age (2002) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011). He has been married to Eva (formerly Ivana) Vrdoljak since May 8, 1999. They have three children.


TRIVIA:
  • Visnjic is common Serbian surname (e.g. famous Serbian popular poet of Serbian epic poetry from 19th century was Filip Visnjic).
  • Wind surfs and practices kung fu.
  • Appeared in an anti-fur billboard campaign for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals with his dog, Bugsy, beginning in January 2003. The ads read: "If you wouldn't wear your dog, please don't wear any fur." The campaign was PETA's first in eastern Europe.
  • Croatian citizen.
  • At age 18, he trained during peacetime for basic crowd control and as a paratrooper in the Yugoslavian People's Army (YNA). He ended up fighting in Slovenia, which proclaimed independence, when the YNA was ordered to attack this now former republic within the federation Yugoslavia. When Goran's tour of duty was done (by the time of his return, Croatia had declared its independence), the Serbian faction of the YNA was already fighting the Croatian faction in a civil war. He volunteered to join the new Croatian Army, breaking his promise to himself never to pick up a gun again.
  • When word came through that he had been accepted in the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Zagreb, his brother volunteered to take his place in the Army so he could study his craft.
  • The youngest actor to be chosen for the coveted title role in Shakespeare's Hamlet, he portrayed the doomed Prince for 6 years from 1993 to 2000, at the internationally acclaimed Dubrovnik Summer Theatre Festival in Croatia, winning several coveted Orlando Awards (the equivalent of the Tony Award). During an episode of "ER," "Luka" demonstrated his expertise in the part of Hamlet, by reciting the, "To be or not to be," soliloquy in Croatian. In the same episode, demonstrated his skill in one of his hobbies, by "Luka" fencing with "Carter."
  • Hobbies are fencing, swimming, and diving.
