Travis Fimmel: From Calvin Klein Model to 'Vikings' Star!

Travis Fimmel: From Calvin Klein Model to 'Vikings' Star!

Travis Fimmel hits the red carpet at the Vikings panel at 2013 WonderCon held at the Anaheim Convention Center on Saturday (March 30) in Anaheim, Calif.

You may (or may not!) recognize the 33-year-old actor from his steamy hot Calvin Klein campaign that heated up billboards and magazines more than a decade ago.

Travis was actually the first male model to secure a six figure deal to model exclusively for Calvin Klein for a year back in 2002. He is now sporting a scruffier look for his role in the History Channel mini-series Vikings as a young Viking warrior who longs to discover civilizations across the seas and challenges the local ruler to allow raids into unexplored lands after he builds a new generation of faster longships.

Also pictured: Travis‘ co-stars Katheryn Winnick and George Blagden at the panel.

    He only looks good when dressed as a viking. He looks kind of bloated and ugly here.

    @Jones:

    He doesn’t look too bad, but yeah, he hasn’t aged well. Maybe, it’s the beard, but those eyes are to die for. Gorg!

    He’s aged fine… but that shapeless shirt outfit and beard do him no favors. When he’s in full Viking regalia, he looks hot.

    not his best pictures but he’s still quite handsome, specially in that picture of him smiling while sitting down on the panel. google him and you’ll see that he’s become quite a man, a bit of a brad pitt and heath ledger hybrid. sexy.

    It looks in this picture like he is growing out the shaved parts of his head. I hope he continues to grow it all out on the show, because he is one man who is verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry sexy with long hair, and especially since he already has the long hair for the show, just let him be sexier looking with his naturally beautiful hair, grow it all out Travis!

    In my opinion, the best movies/series are those where actors look like citizens of earth. I believe that is one reason the “Walking Dead” has met with so much success. Travis F. currently portrays a Viking not a CK model. Actually, I would have chosen a wide variety of actors who look real…and no baths or hairstyling for weeks…that’s what they do in “Walking Dead!” As a model, I thought Travis appeared effeminate…as a Viking, he is stunning. I like how they aged him…with the lines and scruffy beard. This man is so good looking, he could be Gerard Butler’s son!
