Hemsworth started his Hollywood career by making appearances in different TV shows, starring in two episodes of the fantasy television series Guinevere Jones in 2002.

He played Kim Hyde in the Australian soap opera Home and Away and portrayed George Kirk in J. J. Abrams' Star Trek (2009).

The actor starred opposite Sean Bean in the 2010 movie Ca$h. It was his first film in the United States. He was cast as the eponymous god of thunder in the Marvel superhero film Thor (2011) in what became his breakthrough in the industry.

He reprised the role of Thor in several other MCU films, including its sequels. He shot the horror movie Cabin in the Woods (2012) and starred alongside Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman (2012).

In 2013, Hemsworth played 1976 Formula 1 World Champion James Hunt in Ron Howard's sports drama Rush. It was a critical and commercial success.

Quotes

"I love the adventure that comes with this work; the travel and all that. But also, the craft, the storytelling. From a kid, I remember enjoying certain books and getting swept away in movies."

"Everything shifted for me after Rush. It wasn't as financially successful as other things I'd done but it gave me more movement, more options, more doors opening, more meetings. All of a sudden, it's 'Oh, wow! You're an actor!"

"I remember how differently people treated me when things went well. Some directors and producers who never gave a shit - at best, they would have given me a sideways glance - next time I saw them, they're my best friend. That's gross."

Trivia

Put on 20 pounds of muscle for the role of Thor.

Born on a Thursday, the day of the week named after Thor, the Marvel comics character he plays.

The last four letters of his surname are the same letters that form the character of Thor.

Was chosen by People magazine as the Sexiest Man Alive in 2014.

His two brothers, Luke Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth are also popular actors in Hollywood.
