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.
After traveling to Hollywood to audition for roles, Hemsworth 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 the arc of his career.
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,” plus two “Thor” sequels and three “Avengers” sequels, 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. In addition to the massive cultural event that is “Avengers: Endgame,” Hemsworth will also star as Agent H in the untitled “Men in Black” spin-off alongside Tessa Thompson, which is currently in production.
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 decided to return to his roots in 2015.
Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, Chris Hemsworth’s wife of eight years, relocated with him and their three kids back to Byron Bay, Australia. Living Down Under has proven to be a good balance for the Hemsworth family. They’re able to keep their kids out of the spotlight, while allowing Hemsworth to be able to walk to the beach for his morning surf sessions.
Hemsworth is a man who appears to have it all: A loving family, a profitable career and a peaceful place to call home. The blockbusters in his future will surely add to his growing net worth.
