Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth (born 11 August 1983) is an Australian actor. Hemsworth is best known for portraying Thor in the Marvel Studios films Thor (2011) and Marvel's The Avengers (2012), a role he will reprise in Thor: The Dark World in 2013. He first became known for his roles as Kim Hyde in the Australian TV series Home and Away (2004), and for playing George Kirk, James T. Kirk's father, in the opening scenes of the 2009 film Star Trek. This was his first major film role. In 2012 he also starred in The Cabin in the Woods and Snow White and the Huntsman. Hemsworth was born in Melbourne, the son of Leonie, an English teacher, and Craig Hemsworth, a social-services counselor. He was raised both there and in the Northern Territory, in a little 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
