Biography

Tall, muscular and exceptionally handsome, Australian actor Chris Hemsworth became a star in the U. S. with a series of well-received genre films. He was a household name in his native country while starring on the popular drama series, "Home and Away" (7 Network, 1988- ), playing an opinionated student navigating his way through high school in a seaside town. He quickly became a sci-fi sensation across the pond with a brief but memorable role in the J.J. Abrams reboot of the worldwide phenomenon "Star Trek" (2009) as Capt. James T. Kirk's ill-fated father. But it was not until he landed the lead role in the film version of the comic book hero "Thor" (2011) - beating out his younger brother, fellow heartthrob Liam, in the process - that Hemsworth truly flexed his muscles, establishing himself as one of the most charismatic young actors of the moment. Lionsgate films quickly capitalized on Hemsworth's popularity by releasing the long-delayed horror feature "The Cabin in the Woods" (2012), co-written by Joss Whedon. Ironically, it was Whedon who later directed the young star in the superhero blockbuster "The Avengers" (2012), the culmination of "Thor" and Marvel Studios' other franchise films. As talented as he was attractive, Hemsworth was without a doubt, a leading man to watch.
