Enver Leif Gjokaj (ˈɪnviːɹ ˈd͡ʒoːkaɪ; born February 12, 1980) is an Albanian-American film and television actor. He is best known for his co-starring role as Victor in Joss Whedon's science fiction television series Dollhouse.
Gjokaj was born in Orange County, California. His father is Albanian and his mother is American. Gjokaj has an older brother named Bekim and an identical twin brother named Demir. Both Gjokaj and his brother attended Amador High School, in Sutter Creek, California, where Gjokaj participated in multiple plays and variety shows. Gjokaj graduated with an MFA from New York University's Graduate Acting Program at the Tisch School of the Arts. While at NYU, he was a semi-finalist for Tisch's Vilar Global Fellows Program, a Rhodes Scholar-style program in the arts. In 2002, he received a bachelor's degree in English from UC Berkeley.
On March 26, 2008, it was announced that Gjokaj had won the role as Victor on Dollhouse. His character, whose real name is Anthony Ceccoli, is an "Active" (or "doll") inside the Dollhouse, taking on multiple personalities through the process of highly technological imprinting of memories. His identical twin brother Demir guest starred alongside Gjokaj in a dream sequence in a second season episode of Dollhouse.
Gjokaj has appeared in the films The Express alongside Dennis Quaid, Taking Chance with Kevin Bacon, and Eagle Eye opposite Shia LeBeouf.
