Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth (born 11 August 1983) is an Australian actor. He is best known for his roles as Kim Hyde in the Australian TV series Home and Away (2004) and as Thor in the Marvel Studios films Thor (2011), The Avengers (2012), Thor: The Dark World (2013) and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). He has also appeared in Star Trek (2009), A Perfect Getaway (2009), The Cabin in the Woods (2012), Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), Red Dawn (2012) and Rush (2013). 


He will appear in the 2015 film In the Heart of the Sea, based on the book of the same name by Nathaniel Philbrick.

Hemsworth, viewed as a hot symbol, was named 2014 People Magazine's hottest Man Alive.

Chris Hemsworth was born in Melbourne, to Leonie, a teacher of English, and Craig Hemsworth, a social-services counselor.  He was raised both there and in the Northern Territory, in a small Aboriginal community in the Outback called Bulman. He has stated, "My earliest memories were on the cattle stations up in the Outback, and then we moved back to Melbourne and then back out there and then back again. Certainly most of my childhood was in Melbourne but probably my most vivid memories were up there in Bulman with crocodiles and buffalo. Very different walks of life."  He attended high school at Heathmont College before his family again returned to the Northern Territory, and then moved a few years later to Phillip Island. He is the middle of three boys; his brothers Luke (older) and Liam (younger) are also actors.


Hemsworth began dating Spanish actress Elsa Pataky in early 2010 after meeting through their mutual representatives, and they wed in December 2010. They have three children: daughter India Rose (b. May 2012) and twin sons, Tristan and Sasha (b. March 2014).
