Travis Scott Van Winkle (born November 4, 1982) is an American actor.
Travis was born on November 4, 1982, in Victorville, California, the middle of three children of Sally (née Fitzgerald) and Charles Van Winkle. He remained in Victorville until he was two years old, and then moved to Oscoda, Michigan. When he was eight, his family moved again to Peachtree City, Georgia, where he finished at McIntosh High School and attended college until he was twenty years old. At age twenty, he decided to pursue his dream of acting, and took the leap to go to Hollywood. Travis is a member of the Baha'i Faith.
Van Winkle made his television debut in a December 2004 episode of the Fox sitcom Quintuplets, and has since appeared in shows such as That's So Raven, Malcolm in the Middle, The O.C., and 7th Heaven. His film credits include one of the leads in Fox's Meet the Spartans, David R. Ellis's film "Asylum", Universal's Accepted and Michael Bay's Transformers. While he has modeled for Abercrombie & Fitch shot by Bruce Weber, Van Winkle appeared in the 2009 version of Friday the 13th (another Bay production) as Trent DeMarco, the character he previously portrayed in Transformers. In an interview with Fearnet, Van Winkle said that he was very hyped about the film, and enjoyed playing in it. He also appeared in Julianne Hough's 2008 music video for "That Song in My Head".
In 2011 and 2012, Van Winkle made guest appearances in television series such as Happy Endings, 2 Broke Girls, and Two and a Half Men. In October 2012, he was cast in the TNT action drama pilot The Last Ship, executively produced by Michael Bay. In December, he was cast in a recurring role as Jonah on the second season of The CW's series Hart of Dixie.
