Emmy Quickie: ‘Vikings’ Star Travis Fimmel on Who He Really Wanted to Play

Ragnar Lothbrok is the first Viking — could actor Travis Fimmel be the first from “Vikings” to be nominated for an acting Emmy? TheWrap thinks it’s possible, so we brought the dude in to talk about his show, and his craft. Fimmel seemed happy to be in our Southern California offices — after all, our weather beats the crap out of Ireland’s, which the actor ID’d as the toughest part of filming his History drama.
