Goran Visnjic ( /’vi:?nji:t?/ vish-nyich; Croatian: ; born September 9, 1972) is a Croatian actor who has appeared in American and British films and television productions. Now credited as Goran Visnjic in his English-language work, he adopted the simplified spelling of his name when he came to the United States in the late ’90s, believing it would be more accessible to American audiences. Visnjic was born in the Dalmatian coastal city of Sibenik, SR Croatia, SFR Yugoslavia. After leaving the Croatian Army, he moved to Zagreb to study at the Academy of Dramatic Arts. Originally cast as Laertes and understudy to Hamlet, he took over the role when the star dropped out of the production shortly before the first performance. He portrayed the doomed prince for seven years from 1994 to 2000, winning several Orlando Awards (the equivalent of the Tony Award). Visnjic made a series of appearances in season 14 before leaving the show early in season 15, ending his 9 year run on the medical drama. in 2004, he starred in the television miniseries Spartacus and the Croatian movie and television series Duga mracna noc.
