Because HE's worth it (26 secs in)

Get to know Travis

Born to Chris a cattle dairy & crop farmer & Jenny a nurse in Echuca Victoria Australia on July 15 of 1979. Travis was raised on his family's 550 acre farm with his two older brothers om Lockington, somewhere between Melbourne & Sydney. His time was spent at school and working on the farm morning til night. Which Travis still relishes on his trips back home. After school he went to RMIT Melbourne University, and then while bar tending in London he met he soon to be manager David Seltzer. Travis moves to the States and studied under acting coach Icana Chubbuck who has also taught Brad Pitt Haley Berry and many other (today) big name talents. Productions on his films and tv shows may have taken him around the world, there's still nothing like home for Travis who goes back to the farm as often as possible. He's a former Calvin Clein Underwear & jeans model who's billboard in London caused such an uproar it was taken down because an auto club claimed women driver's were slowing down and therefore causing traffic accidents to eyeball the ad.

2003 he started on the small screen as Tarzan then a show called Rocky Point that I don't think made it past the pilot episode and a 2006 tv movie called Southern Comfort. He played Ron who takes (True Blood's) Stephen Moyer hostage in the 2008 flick Restraint. In 2009 Travis co-starred alongside the late Patrick Swaze in The Beast tv series,and 2010 brought the Experiment and indy horror suspense movie Neddle (which I enjoyed). Besides season 2 of Vikings we can see him on the big screen in the upcoming Warcraft (being released in 2016) and Overdrive due in the U.S. sometime in 2014.

Fimmel mini Facts

Straight from the... Kangaroos mouth!!?

Maggie's Plan

Rated R romantic drama comedy

The story is about Maggie's Plan to have a kid and gets involved with a married man.

Travis plays Guy who is a Pickle entrepreneur and who Maggie actually picks to be the father. At the same time she falls for a married man, gets married has a kid and then her marriage looks like the his former one.

Sadly Travis isn't in the movie enough but maybe there will be a sequel considering the way it ended.

Needle

Needle
Needle

This is one of my Favorite Movies with Travis. he's only a co-star in this as

he plays the older brother in the movie of a college student who inherits some voodoo box.

As far as movies I've seen up to the point I originally saw this movie, it was pretty original as far as the Voodoo box (or that's what I called it when I first saw it, as well as what it made.)

Some pretty cool deaths and so on, I highly recommend this

Restraint

This was the first movie I saw of Travis' It stars him as a criminal who holds Stephen Moyer's character hostage

The Experiment

It's been a long time since I've seen this but I think it was a pretty good movie. not sure to what length Travis' character is in this, but considering Travis seems to look like a different person in each of his movies etc. You will have fun trying to spot him I'm sure!

So I rented this again to see What Travis' character was.. He plays one of the guards and a gothish punk looking one at that! So I got a kick out of that but wasn't hard at all spotting him.

The Beast: Season 1

co-starred with the late Patrick Swayze as an FBI agent sent undercover to look after Swayze's character.

The Baytown Outlaws

In this Reddit interview with Travis, someone mentions the similarities gotta love the answer but sadly no they're not even cousins (but they could play twins in a movie... let's hope someday we get our wish!

THe 2 places that make him most happy is the family farm and his home in Ireland while filming Vikings where he has a little cabin on the lake and fish all the time and it only takes two minutes to drive to work

He's the prankster on set (& even in interviews)

has his own farm &^ grew up on one

Haven't heard much about his personal life but he's been Linked to the Kiwi model Rachel Hunter back in 2002, and from 2007-08 dated Filipino actress Mei Melancon . I've also heard he Dated Nicole Appleton

In a Q&A from Gold Derby Travis was asked what he does between take.. "Eat. It's Free Food"

Little Known fact, Ragnar was supposed to die in the first season of Vikings!

studied architecture and engineering at RMIT University,

father Chris, a dairy and beef farmer, and mother Jennie, a recreation officer who worked with the disabled.

what seems to terrify the soft-spoken Australian country boy more than any of those things is talking to the media.
