‘Thor’ Star Talks about His Role

Thor” star and newcomer Chris Hemsworth recently had a chat with MTV News and discussed his portrayal of as Marvel Comics’ God of Thunder.

“The very first audition I had was one of those things in amongst several other auditions you get,” Hemsworth told MTV News at San Diego Comic-Con. “You know nothing about it, there’s no script or anything — it’s very secretive. You might quickly rip through a couple of comic books, but it’s also based on instinct.”

Apparently, the Thor star also met with director Kenneth Branagh. Also, his brother, actor Liam Hemsworth, was up for the same role.

The actor, however, cleared that there was no brotherly rivalry. “The majority of the time in this business, we’re sort of pinching ourselves.”

Hemsworth added that the family support goes both ways. “I’m excited for him and vice versa. Through that process, I was giving him advice on what I thought Ken wanted — and then when I was in there testing, he was doing the same.”
