Childhood and family. The first rolesChris’ homeland is Australia – he was born in Melbourne but had spent his childhood in the station town of Bulman. The middle son of Hemsworth’, he got along with both of the brothers – with an elder Luck and with a younger one, Liam.
Both of his brothers shared his passion for acting. They often were dreaming together of reaching the tops in the movie industry as such Australians like Heath Ledger and Naomi Watts have done.
The series was shot in Sydney, thus Chris was forced to leave his family house and to move to the capital city. It was a reasonable decision because due to this role Chris had gained his fame at the first time and also was awarded as the Breakthrough of the Year by the Australian Film Academy.
At the same time, he appeared in the episodes of TV-series «The Saddle Club», «Marshall Law», while having been taken part in the 5th season of the Australian version of «Dancing with the Stars», which he left after the 5th week of the contest.
Acting career in HollywoodIn 2007, Chris suddenly realized that the local TV couldn’t offer him something new and for that reason, he had soon moved to the USA. There, in Hollywood, the star of the Australian soap-operas was warmly welcomed, and soon after he has joined the cast of the high-budget project «Star Track». Chris portrayed George Kirk, a father of Chris Pine’s character.
Although the budget of the film was quite limited, it could have been called very memorable. Subsequently, Chris’ name was in the titles of the other similar project – «A Perfect Getaway», where he played alongside Milla Jovovich and Steve Zan.
Thor and «Avengers»The turning point of Chris Hemsworth’s career was connected with his approval for a superhero blockbuster by Marvel to the role of Thor, the legendary Scandinavian god with great power and a magic hummer Mjolnir. Hemsworth was cast among many other candidates, and his rivals were competitive: Channing Tatum, Alexander Skarsgard, wrestling champion WWE Paul Leveski and even Chris’ younger brother Liam were auditioned for the role.
But preferred Chris to all of them and it was a good fortune for an actor. The choice of Kenneth Branagh not astonishing at all: high and muscled Chris even with no special costume or makeup looks exactly like a legendary thunderer embodied into life. His courageous nordic face is even more impressive than the originally Scandinavian look of Swede Skarsgard.
And it was only the beginning – it has been already known that Thor is a constant figure of seemingly never-ending Marvel Universe franchise. Just in a year, he appeared on the screen as one of the teammates of other Marvel superheroes like Tony Stark, Hulk, Black Widow, Captain America, and other fighters of evil.
If Thor was forced to confront with Avengers portrayed by Robert Downey-Jr., Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo in the beginning became the important part of their crew after their reconciliation and even had a crush on Black Widow Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson).
In 2013, the young man starred biopic «Rush» the plot of which was dedicated to the real story of the racer of FIA Formula One World Championship, James Hunt. The success of the film made by Ron Howard was evidence that Chris Hemsworth is able not only to act as Thor with a few facial expressions and to take a stand always ready to beat but might have been called a talented actor by right.
In the year 2016, Hemsworth appeared in the «female» remake of the «Ghostbusters». He played a secretary of the charming women who were in a hunt for the paranormal.
Personal life of Chris HemsworthDespite the image of a beautiful heartbreaker, Chris Hemsworth can be rightfully considered an honest family man – only with exception of his marriage with an actress Isabel Lucas (who was Chris’ partner on the set of «Home and Away»), which was concluded as hasty as it was collapsed.
