Born: August 11, 1983 (31)

Born in Melbourne, Chris Hemsworth began his acting career in the very popular Australian soap Neighbours playing Kym Hyde. Although Chris was born in Melbourne, he was raised both there and in the Outback community of Bulman, which he recognises as very different walks of life.

In 2009, he had his first major Hollywood role playing Lieutenant Commander George Kirk, the father of James T Kirk, in Star Trek. He became further established on the big screen playing Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and will reprise the role once again in Avengers: Age of Ultron. He has also starred alongside Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron as the Huntsman in Snow White and the Huntsman, played Formula 1 world champion James Hunt in Ron Howard's motor racing movie Rush, and will soon be seen in Howard's big-screen adaptation of In the Heart of the Sea.

Hemsworth is married to fellow actor Elsa Pataky, and the couple have three children.
