Although Chris Hemsworth originally auditioned for the role of Robbie Hunter in Home and Away in 2004, he instead got the part of Kim Hyde, and stayed on the show until 2007. Due to his time on the show, he was actually nominated for two Logie Award, winning one for Most Popular New Talent on Home and Away in 2005. In 2009’s Star Trek, Chris played the role of James T. Kirk’s father, George Kirk, in the opening scenes. His most well known recent release however, would have to be Thor. His brother Liam was actually in the final four for the role and Chris wasn’t, but after deciding to re-evaluate the former possible candidates for the role, Chris won the role. He is also set to re-appear as Thor on 2012’s The Avengers.
I’ve got to say this, but sorry ladies, Chris is currently married to actress Elsa Pataky. Although you might want to try his younger brother Liam, who is currently in an on-off relationship with Miley Cyrus.
Watch Chris Hemsworth below on how he got his role for Thor on David Letterman:
