Biography

For years, most people did not know Travis Fimmel's name, yet they were intimately familiar with what he looked like in his underwear. The athletic, blond farm kid from Australia turned heads when he appeared in provocative ads for Calvin Klein underwear in 2001, but he was a reluctant model who had only stripped down to his skivvies to finance acting lessons. Fimmel was well-received in his breakout role as "Tarzan" (2003-04) on the WB, but anxious fans would have a long wait to see him onscreen again, as several follow-up TV projects were short-lived and his first feature seemed destined to stay in the can.
