All of my friends on Facebook were probably very sick of me while I was in Copenhagen as I think every second status update was about how sexy the Viking men are. On the weekend I actually started watching Vikings tv series on Netflix. I’d seen bits and pieces of it over the time but never more than a few minutes here and there. So seeing several episodes back to back I’m now invested and enjoying it thoroughly. There’s not the nudity I was hoping for from a series about Scandinavian Vikings since the Scandinavians love their nudity but I’ll settle for good stories and visually beautiful imagery.
The lead actor in the series is an Aussie guy Travis Fimmel who first made a name for himself as the hot Aussie Calvin Klein model several years ago. Travis turned 37 a few months ago and I have to say he’s aging very nicely. His features and his acting style is very reminiscent, to me at least, of Brad Pitt a few years ago, circa Fight Club. He has the twinkle in his eye and the twitchy dangerousness about him. Even the atrocious haircut in the show doesn’t hurt. At some point it went from some kind of mullet undercut to the more sexy braided long undercut which helped.
His long flowing blonde surfer boy hair was always one of his drawcards for me. That surfer hair will always do it, well usually.
