Vikings' Travis Fimmel Reveals When He'll Quit Acting

Travis Fimmel doesn’t intend to be an actor forever and he really is looking forward to becoming a farmer one day!

The 37-year-old Vikings actor told Interview magazine that he grew up on a farm thinking he would become a farmer and he still thinks he will. Here is what he shared with the mag:

On quitting acting to become a farmer: “I haven’t made enough money to buy a farm. I want a big farm. Everything is expensive in Australia. I got a long way to go, unfortunately. I had a two-year plan that went to a four-year plan that went to a six-year plan. I’ve been trying to do this for 16 years or something now. Plans never really turn out. I’ll get a certain amount of money then I’ll go.”

On his Australian pride: “I’ve got Aussie country pride for sure. I just like where I grew up. I think you’ve got lots in common with the people who grew up the same as you.”

On the future of Vikings: “I was only meant to be on the show for a year. I was meant to die that last episode that first year, but I didn’t; I ended up being on it a bit longer. There are great young actors playing my sons. A lot of shows get very repetitive, but I think it’s great that the young kids are coming in. It just gives new life to the show”some cool characters for the audience to follow. I hope they really enjoy this season. The kids are great. I’m excited for the audience to see these young people doing amazing things.”

On Mel Gibson: “I’ve always loved Mel Gibson. I think he’s awesome. I love the humor that he brings to everything. And he’s an Aussie. I would love to work with him.”
