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 showβ€”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.”

    I like Vikings. Newsflash: Gibson is American, his dad moved their family to Australia to avoid the Vietnam draft years ago, but they live in the U.S. now.

    Ehh not really, he was born and raised in Australia… that makes him Australian, plus i’m pretty sure he’s an australian citizen… making him australian… Sure his father may have been American, but that doesn’t make Travis American… I was born and raised in Denmark, but my family are of polish jewish descent… that doesn’t make me either a jew or Polish

    He was born in New York. Moved to Australia when he was a teen.

    I did not know that. Thank you, That still doesn’t make him American considering his status as an Australian citizen
