Travis Fimmel stars as Ellis Dove on A&E's "The Beast."

Travis Fimmel was born July 15, 1979 in Echuca Victoria, Australia, on a dairy and beef farm located between Melbourne and Sydney along with two brothers. At age sixteen, Fimmel grew restless and moved to Sydney. By the time he turned eighteen and graduated from high school, he played Aussie Rules Football for St. Kilda, but before the season began an injury forced him to sideline those plans. He then enrolled in RMIT in Melbourne studying commercial architecture and engineering. He stayed for one year but was again growing restless and decided to join a friend who was going overseas to London. The young adventurer had planned to see some of the world and return to his home intending to enroll in university and play football again. Those plans would never materialize as Fimmel decided he wanted to become an actor. He returned to Australia for a short time and decided to move to Los Angeles.

It wasn't long before Fimmel began studying acting with acclaimed acting coach Ivana Chubbuck, the woman responsible for preparing Halle Berry and Elisabeth Shue for their Oscar-caliber performances.

In 2003, Fimmel landed the lead role as John Clayton in The WB series "Tarzan," produced by Laura Ziskin. In 2005, he starred in the WB pilot "Rocky Point" opposite Billy Campbell for executive producer John Stockwell and in 2006 starred on the FOX pilot "Southern Comfort."

In 2008, Fimmel played a supporting role opposite Matthew McConaughey as Johnny Doran in the Anchor Bay Entertainment film "Surfer, Dude," a comedy about a surfer experiencing an existential crisis for director S.R. Blinder and he also had a role in the DVD release of "Restraint." Also in 2008, Fimmel plays a lead role in the film "Ivory," a drama about a concert pianist produced by Academy Award-winning producer Gray Frederickson and Amy Briede and directed by Andrew W. Chan.

Fimmel currently resides in Los Angeles.
