Globally beloved for his portrayal of Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Chris Hemsworth is an Australian actor. He first rose to prominence courtesy of his portrayal of the character Kim Hyde in the Australian soap opera Home and Away, and subsequently made his Hollywood debut with the film Star Trek in 2009.

Following appearances in movies like A Perfect Getaway (2009) and Cash (2010), Hemsworth was cast in the titular role in the MCU movie Thor (2011), which marked a turning point in his career. The enormous success of the film, coupled with the rise of MCU as an international phenomenon, established Hemsworth as a household name around the world. He subsequently reprised the role in blockbusters like The Avengers (2012), Thor: The Dark World (2013), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Doctor Strange (2016) and Thor: Ragnarok (2017). Besides MCU, the actor also appeared in starring roles in several other successful films during this time, notable among which were the fantasy film Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) and the biographical sports drama Rush (2013).

In 2018, Hemsworth portrayed the God of Thunder yet again in Avengers: Infinity War, the first of a two-part project that marked the conclusion of the Infinity Stones story arc in the MCU. A phenomenal box office success, Infinity War also opened to near-universal critical acclaim. The actor reprised his role in the following year for Avengers: Endgame (2019), which broke the box office pre-sales records in North America.

The sci-fi action comedy Men in Black: International (2019) and the Netflix film Dhaka (2019) are some of the actor`s other notable projects in recent times. His other notable works include Extraction (2020), Spiderhead (2021), Thor: Love and Thunder (2022), Extraction 2 (2023) and Furiosa (2024).

  • Personal Quotes (10)

  • "For whatever reason, we relate to anything godlike with an English accent. The English are very proud of that. And with anything Roman or gladiators, they have an English accent. For an audience, it is an easy trick to hook people in."
  • "I hadn't read comics really before coming in to shooting the original 'Thor.' During that and beforehand, I read stacks and got my head around it all. We reference, especially when we were putting the script together before we started shooting, other stories."
  • "I was filming 'The Avengers' when I got the call for 'Rush,' so I went from 215 pounds, which is how much I weigh when I'm playing Thor, down to about 185 pounds to be able to fit into the car. That was all in about four months."
  • "First time I looked at a Formula One car in person, I just stared at the cockpit, figuring I'd never get in there. The drivers wear the whole car like a tight-fitting suit."
  • "People who put themselves on the line and sacrifice their own safety for the greater good and for others, and anyone in any profession whose concern is the welfare for other people instead of the individual, are inspiring and important."
  • "I actually find it harder to act in the scenes where there's not much happening, say having a milkshake in the diner. That is far harder to do than straight scenes where there's a drama going on and you have something to do."
  • "I put the costume on and said 'It's not very comfortable, but it looks amazing,' so it's all good."
  • "I feel like I'm ready for any dangerous situation that might come my way, provided I have a hammer on me."
  • "Not often do you approach a character where people know more about him than you do."
  • "Growing up I always loved films that transport you to another world and has things you never see in every day life."
