Main character of the Vikings series, Travis Fimmel lent his features to Ragnar for several years. As the series ended on December 30, 2020, what happens to the actor?
Vikings : Ragnar Lothbrok
Vikings ended after six seasons and 89 episodes. Mickael Hirst’s series relates the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok. Looking to the future, the young Viking farmer will take his people to navigate beyond all they have known. Expeditions after expeditions, combat after combat, his thirst for adventure but also for knowledge, will push him to question his beliefs but also to become King of the Vikings.
The hit series featured Travis Fimmel who embodied the famous viking since 2013. Despite a hailed interpretation and a working plot, the actor said goodbye even before the end of the series. After a masterful speech, Ragnar Lothbrok dies in episode 15 of season 4. A blow to fans who still constantly bring up the series and eagerly await the prequel: Vikings: Valhalla. But after so many years as Ragnar Lothbrok, what becomes of his interpreter?
First a model, Travis Fimmel decides to become an actor and pays for drama lessons. Despite several appearances in series or films, it is in Vikings that the actor obtains the consecration. First broadcast on the History Channel, the series between fiction and reality is a real success. Travis Fimmel gets noticed and as he begins the fourth season of the series, he gets a role in the film Warcraft: The Beginning, the adaptation of the video game series of the same name. And if the fans still mourn his departure from Vikings, the actor, he already sees further.
It didn’t cost me. I’m not one of those actors who live and breathe the character and bring it home. It was a great experience and the best thing I have done for sure, but now we have to move on.
After playing a video game character in Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Travis announces in 2019 that he will be alongside Uma Thurman in Tau Ceti Oven. Since 2020 he has also joined the cast of the series Raised by Wolves, where he plays Marcus. Shortly, he will be showing Die in gunfight by Collin Schiffli.
