Chris Hemsworth Movies and Acting History
Australians were the first to see Hemsworth on the small screen before he joined the ranks of big-screen high-earners. The Aussie native appeared in a few episodes of the fantasy series “Guinevere Jones” and he competed on “Dancing With the Stars Australia” in 2006, lasting until the seventh week. He was also a series regular on the Australian soap opera, “Home and Away,” which he left in 2007.
It wouldn’t be long after until the world would see Chris Hemsworth’s movies raking it in at the box office. After traveling to Hollywood to audition for roles, he landed the part of James T. Kirk’s father in 2009’s “Star Trek.” Only a few years later, he was cast in “Thor,” a movie that would dramatically change his career for the better.
Not uncharacteristic for Marvel movies, the first “Thor” film had an outstanding run at the box office, earning just under $500 million worldwide. Now a part of the Marvel family, Hemsworth would go on to star in “The Avengers,” “Thor: The Dark World,” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” catapulting him into superhero stardom. His additional roles in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” “Red Dawn,” “In the Heart of the Sea” and “Ghostbusters” solidified him as a household name.
Chris Hemsworth’s Upcoming Projects
Things aren’t slowing down for the “Thor” actor. Currently on his horizon are the next installments for his each of his franchises: “Avengers: Infinity War,” the untitled “Star Trek” sequel and next in the Thor film series, “Thor: Ragnarok.”
The “Thor: Ragnarok” cast is star-studded and includes some actors who are new to the “Thor” series: Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum and Benedict Cumberbatch. The film, which will reportedly focus more on Thor’s mythology, has already generated major buzz by recently releasing a second trailer at San Diego Comic-Con.
Chris Hemsworth’s Personal Life
The Hemsworth family leads a happy yet busy life. Hemsworth relocated from Australia to begin auditioning for roles in Hollywood, but recently decided to return to his roots.
Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, Chris Hemsworth’s wife of six-and-a-half years, relocated with him and their three kids back Down Under. Living in Australia has proven to be the perfect life for the Hemsworth family. They’re able to keep their kids out of the spotlight, while allowing Chris to be able to walk to the beach for his morning surf sessions.
Leaving Los Angeles proved to be profitable for Hemsworth when it came to his real estate properties. People’s Sexiest Man Alive of 2014 sold his five-bedroom Malibu mansion in 2015 for a hefty $7 million, $500,000 over the asking price, before downsizing for his move to Australia.
Hemsworth is a man who seems to have it all: A loving family, profitable career and a peaceful place to call home. The growing list of blockbusters in his future will surely add to his growing net worth.
