Biography: Chris Hemsworth

Chris was born in Melbourne Australia but moved around in his youth settling in the Northern Territory and finally on Phillip Island.

Chris first appeared on television in 2002 but his real break came in 2004 when he landed the role of Kim Hyde in the popular Australian soap, Home and Away.  Prior to this he had appeared on rival soap Neighbours, on which both his brothers, Luke and Liam, have had prominent roles.  He left the soap in 2007 and just two years later got his break in America playing George Kirk in the re-booted Star Trek movie.  Since then he has risen to fame portraying the god Thor in the Marvel film of the same name as well as in The Avengers.  He can also be seen next year in Cabin in the Woods which was initially due to be released before Thor but will now be released just two weeks before The Avengers.
