The Rise to Fame of Chris Hemsworth
Hemsworth started off his career by appearing in many TV series, including Guinevere Jones, Neighbours, and Marshall Law. In 2004, Chris auditioned for the role of Robbie Hunter on the Australian soap opera Home and Away’ but didn’t get it. However, the producers remembered him and offered him the part of Kim Hyde — a recurring character on the show. He played this part for 171 episodes before leaving in 2007. Hemsworth went on to say that though he became more visible after Home and Away, his work on a soap opera is not what earns an actor respect within the film industry.
In 2009, Hemsworth played George Kirk in the opening scenes of the film Star Trek, a box office success that grossed over US$385.7 million. He also played the character Kale Garrity in the thriller A Perfect Getaway, another modest success of Chris’ films, grossing US$22 million with a US$14 million budget. Chris received tons of mixed reviews for his performance as “solid,” with Young praising his “appropriately intimidating” characterization of a “thuggish backpacker.”
Actor Chris Hemsworth started his Hollywood career in 2011 when he signed on to the Shadow Runner project. However, in the same year, he auditioned for the role of Thor. Of course, it is no secret that this film was a huge success, earning nearly half a billion dollars.
In 2012, he reprised as one of six superheroes in The Avengers (2012). He played alongside Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Tom Hiddleston. The film broke records and earned over $1.5 billion worldwide. He reprised his role again in 2013’s Thor: The Dark World.
His success continued as he went on to several roles in the film industry. As his Hollywood career has developed, Hemsworth has become one of the world’s highest-paid actors. He appeared on Forbes’ World’s Highest-Paid Actors list, that’s in the years 2014, 2015, and 2018. Aside from that, he also ranked 31st in the magazine’s list of Highest-Paid Celebrities in 2018 and 24th in 2019, with estimated earnings of $76.4 million.
