BIOGRAPHY:

Travis Fimmel (born 15 July 1979 near Echuca, Victoria, Australia) is an Australian actor and former fashion model who currently resides in London, England.

Fimmel grew up on a farm outside of Echuca, Victoria, Australia, as the youngest of three brothers. At the age of seventeen, Fimmel moved to Melbourne, Victoria to play football and study project management at RMIT University. However, his football career was cut short by a broken leg. He began modelling in 1998, when Fimmel was approached in a Melbourne gym by Matthew Anderson, a booker from Chadwick Models, with an offer to join the agency. Fimmel later rose to prominence as the star of Calvin Klein's "Crave" advertising campaign and playing the title role in The WB network's failed television series Tarzan. Fimmel was the first male model to sign a six figure deal to represent Calvin Klein exclusively.

Fimmel has appeared in two music videos, for "I'm Real" by Jennifer Lopez and "Someone to Call My Lover" by Janet Jackson.

Fimmel is an oil painter; however this talent has gone largely unnoticed in respect to his professional career.

Fimmel was starring with Patrick Swayze (until Swayze's death) in the A&E television series The Beast, which premiered on January 15, 2009. On June 15, 2009, Entertainment Tonight announced that the show has been canceled due to Patrick Swayze's pancreatic cancer. He portrayed a rookie FBI Undercover Agent, partnered with Swayze's character, a veteran FBI agent. His 2009 film Ivory is currently in post-production.
