Today's E! Online Dollhouse-fest starts off with the fantastic Enver Gjokaj dialing in from his native Albania to answer our burning questions about his role as Victor on Fox's Dollhouse, which, of course, returns tonight at 9 p.m. on FOX.
Have you fantasized about certain assignments you'd like to see Victor take, just for fun as an actor?
Yes. I would like to shoot a rocket launcher into a busload of bad guys from a moving car. I've informed Joss of that, but still no word back so I can only assume he's looking for a way to fit it into future episodes.
Is there anything you can tease about Victor's background, before he was a doll?
We know he has a military background and that something bad happened. Joss and I have talked briefly about that, but nothing is official.
What have you learned from working with Joss Whedon and Eliza Dushku?
Wow, so much. What really stands out to me is their professionalism. It's been a rocky road finding this show, but never once did any tension or frustration trickle onto set. I don't know how he does it but Joss creates a truly creative atmosphere. And Eliza basically has to live on set, but I never once saw her tired or cranky or complaining. Couldn't ask for better people to work with.
Do you have any sense of what it is that attracts Victor so strongly to Sierra?
Hmm...Pheromones? I'm not sure, but we know it's something deeper, more instinctual than liking her personality, because we don't really have those as dolls. I personally think Joss is asking, "What if there is such a thing as true love?" Something more than a pat psychological answer. What if two souls are attracted to each other even in the absence of memory? It's a great question.
Are Victor and Echo friends at this point?
Again, I think friends implies going out for drinks and talking about movies they like. Joss has written that it's like a herd mentality--that it's less social interaction than it is flocking. I'm not sure. In my mind, there is an implicit trust.
