What you don't know about Travis Fimmel (Ragnar Lothbrok)

Travis Fimmel (born 15 July 1979) is an Australian actor and former model. He is best known for his high-profile Calvin Klein campaign, for co-starring opposite the late Patrick Swayze in the TV series The Beast, for the movie Warcraft, and for his role as Ragnar Lothbrok in the History Channel series Vikings.







Fimmel was born near EchucaVictoria. He was raised on a 5,500-acre dairy farm in Lockington. The youngest of three brothers, he is the son of Jennie, a recreation officer for the disabled, and Chris, a cattle farmer. Aspiring to be a professional Australian rules footballer, Fimmel moved to Melbourne in his late teens to play for the St Kilda Football Club in the AFL, but a broken leg sidelined him before the season began. He was accepted into RMIT to study commercial architecture and engineering but later deferred to travel abroad. 



Fimmel's favourite recreational activities include Australian rules football, camping, surfing, riding motorbikes and going to the beach.

Fimmel also played a celebrity cricket match in the 2009 Australia vs England Hollywood Ashes with fellow Australian actors Jesse Spencer (from House) and Cameron Daddo (from Models Inc.), plus celebrity chef Curtis StoneINXS bass guitarist Garry Gary Beers and fast bowler Michael Kasprowicz.

  6. He definitely has that Viking look to him. He’s very handsome with his piercing eyes. I haven’t watched anything he’s acted in though.
