Date of birth: 15/07/79 (41 years)
 Nationality: Australia

Travis Fimmel (born 15 July 1979) is an Australian actor and former model who is currently based in the United States. He is best known for his high-profile Calvin Klein campaign and for co-starring with Patrick Swayze in TV series The Beast shortly before Swayze's death. 
 
Fimmel was raised as the youngest of three brothers by parents Chris and Jennie on their 5500-acre dairy farm in Lockington near the small country town of Echuca, between Melbourne and Sydney. 
 
He moved to Melbourne in his late teens to play professional AFL Football for the St Kilda F Read his whole biography Football Club, but a broken leg sidelined him before the season began. He was accepted into Melbourne University to study commercial architecture and engineering but later deferred to travel abroad. 
 
His modelling career first began when he was spotted working out at a gym in the Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn by the flatmate of Matthew Anderson, a talent scout for the Chadwick Models agency. 
 
Fimmel was signed on the spot with agency LA Models in 2002 after walking into their office broke and barefoot. He then became the first male in the world to secure a six-figure deal to model exclusively for Calvin Klein for a year. He fronted CK's Crave men's fragrance campaign and modelled the brand's famous underwear. It was reported that one of his London billboards had to be pulled down after complaints from an auto club of traffic congestion and accidents by 'rubbernecking' female drivers, but Fimmel insists the story started with a rumor spread on the internet. 
 
He was named one of the world's sexiest bachelors by America's People magazine in 2002. It has even been suggested by some journalists that Fimmel was the inspiration for Sex and the City heartthrob Smith Jerrod. 
 
Fimmel appeared on magazine covers including France's Numero Homme and America's TV Guide, as well as on high-profile American TV talk shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Sharon Osbourne Show and Live with Regis and Kathie Lee in 2003. He also made a cameo appearance in the bar scene of a video clip for Janet Jackson's "Someone to Call My Lover" and played a hunk loading hay onto the back of a pick-up truck in Jennifer Lopez's "I'm Real" (not to be confused with her song of the same name featuring rapper Ja Rule). 
 
Preferring to be known for his acting rather than his modelling, Fimmel turned down an offer from Australia's Seven Network to be a guest judge on the TV series Make Me A Supermodel
