The stoic scandi-warrior, Ragnar Lothbrok in Vikings is probably what Travis Fimmel is best known for. His character in the History TV’s epic drama was a fan-favorite for many before he died in a pit full of snakes in the second part of season 4.

The Aussie heartthrob’s career in the glamour world saw meteoric rise after he was scouted by Chadwick Modeling Agency in the early 2000s. From signing with LA models walking barefoot into their office to receiving a 6-figure annual paycheck for being a face of Calvin Klein, he found success in no time.
Reportedly, a Billboard of Travis’ Calvin Klein underwear campaign caused traffic in the London streets and even led to several accidents. Eventually, the billboard was taken down.
The fame as a model inspired him to launch an acting career, and went on to hone his skills with Ivana Chubbuck. He got a fabulous start in acting with a role in Warner Bros’ TV series, Tarzan, in 2003. CNN described his role as “five hottest things happening in entertainment right now.”
He appeared in numerous hit movies & TV shows, including The Beast before landing the role of Ragnar Lothbrok in History’s Vikings in 2013. In 2016, he starred alongside Paula Patton in Warcraft: The Beginning, a movie based on the video game series of the same name.
