Travis Fimmel Net Worth $6 Million

Travis grew up on a farm near Lockington, but aspired to become an Australian Rules football player, however, he broke his leg, and was inactive for the whole season while in high school. After matriculating, Travis enrolled at the RMIT, but before he graduated, Travis`s modeling career had already begun.

He became a model in 2002 when, while working out in a gym, he was spotted by a talent agent from the LA modeling agency, and soon enough, Travis was one of the agency`s models. His net worth began slowly to increase; as the work became more frequent, his name was also becoming more popular. He became exclusive model for Calvin Klein and did several campaigns, including the Crave men’s fragrance campaign, and modelled the brand’s famous underwear, which earned him a six-figure contract for a year, which only increased his net worth. To speak further of his success he appeared on front pages of several magazines, including “Numero Homme” and “TV Guide”, among others.

Thanks to the initial success as a model, Travis was able to launch an acting career; he was taught by Hollywood acting coach Ivana Chubbuc, and after two years, he went to his first audition, and was selected for the role of Tarzan in the series of the same name. The series lasted only for one season, but it launched Travis further into the acting world, as he received quite positive critiques for his work. After “Tarzan”, Travis made a film debut in “Southern Comfort” (2006), and two years later appeared in “Restraint” and “Surfer, Dude”. In 2009 he was selected for the role of Elis Dove in the TV series “Beast” with Patrick Swayze, and 2010 was one of his busiest, as he acquired roles in the films “Ivory”, “The Experiment” with Adrien Brody and Forest Whitaker, “Needle” in which he was the lead actor, and “Pure Country 2: The Gift”, all of which increased his net worth by a large margin.

Two years later Travis was a star of the films “The Baytown Outlaws” (2012) alongside Billy Bob Thornton and Eva Longoria, and “Harodim” alongside Peter Fonda and Michael Desante.

In 2013 he was selected for the role of Ragnar Lothbrok – which is his most memorable role so far – in the TV series “Vikings”, which is still on air. The role celebrated him as an actor, but also increased his net worth by a large margin. In the first couple of seasons of the series, Travis was quite busy, and didn`t have other engagements in the entertainment industry, but since 2015 he has been active in appearing in such films as “Maggie’s Plan”, “Warcraft: The Beginning” (2016), which also added to his net worth. Furthermore, he has several projects that aren`t yet finished, including films “Inversion”, which is still in pre-production, “Finding Steve Mcqueen” (2016), “Lean on Pete” (2017), and “All Quiet on the Western Front” (2017).

Regarding his personal life, Travis tends to keep his relationships and love life away from the public eye. His hobbies include Australian Rules football, riding motorbikes, surfing and other outdoor activities.
