There are certain roles in an actors career that can go on to define them, with them becoming best known for playing that particular role, despite the fact that they have played many more interesting roles in their career. Australian actor Chris Hemsworth has become one of the most sought after stars in Hollywood and, while he is best known for playing Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there is a lot more to the actor than just that.
Prior to landing the role as Thor in the first Thor movie, Chris Hemsworth was a relative unknown in Hollywood, having small roles in movies such as A perfect Getaway, Ca$h, and Star Trek, where he played the role of George Kirk. Since that first Thor movie, Chris Hemsworth has gone on to star in movies including The Cabin in the Woods, Snow White and the Huntsman, Red Dawn, and Rush, while also appearing in more Marvel movies.
Chris Hemsworth is not done there either, as he also has plenty more projects lined up for the coming years. Chris has three movies currently in production, Blackhat, Heart of the Sea, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, while he also has a further three in development, Vacation, Doc Savage, and The Huntsman. There is also the small matter of Thor 3 to think about too.
So, while we are delighted to have Chris Hemsworth playing the role of Thor in the Marvel movies, there is so much more to this talented Australian actor than just that. Which Chris Hemsworth performance is your favourite so far in his career?
