He moved to Melbourne in his late teens to play professional AFL Football for the St Kilda Football Club, but a broken leg sidelined him before the season began. His modelling career first began when he was spotted working out at a gym in the Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn by the flatmate of Matthew Anderson, a talent scout for the Chadwick Models agency. It has even been suggested by some journalists that Fimmel was the inspiration for Sex and the City heartthrob Smith Jerrod. Preferring to be known for his acting rather than his modelling, Fimmel turned down an offer from Australia’s Seven Network to be a guest judge on the TV series Make Me A Supermodel. Fimmel studied under Hollywood acting coach Ivana Chubbuck, taking two years to pluck up the courage to audition for his first role, saying “half of acting is overcoming your fears letting yourself be vulnerable in front of people”. in 2010, he portrayed a compassionate cowboy in Pure Country 2: The Gift; a forensic photographer in Australian horror movie Needle (with Packed to the Rafter’s Jessica Marais); and a gifted classical pianist in Ivory (with Martin Landau), produced by Academy Award recipient Gray Frederickson.
