I wouldn’t say Chris Hemsworth is my favourite Hemsworth, but his biceps are definitely my favourite.
But before he was God’s gift to the world or even a God himself as Thor, Chris was just an Aussie actor trying to carve a name for himself in the industry. His early works may not be the best showcase of his skillset (if I’m being honest, his acting flopped pretty hard) but does provide the greatest entertainment value.
We all know old mate Chris was on Home & Away. After all, it’s where all the blonde haired, blue eyed Aussie actors with slightly bogan accents go to learn how to look sexy in slow motion and act outraged that their best friend is sleeping with their long term girlfriend.
But before he was on Home & Away, Chris starred in two other iconic Aussie TV shows.
The first is Neighbours. Which coincidentally is also where goddess Margot Robbie got her big break, so there’s something to be said about the power of crappy Australian soap operas.
On the show, Chris played Jamie Kane who works at car parts wholesaler Moco. He finds his co-worker Stephanie Scully after the place is robbed and questions Steph as to why she did not press the alarm button. He calls the police himself and leaves Steph in an awkward situation as it emerges she knew the robber.
The second show is most definitely my favourite from Chris’ repertoire. I don’t think you’re ready for this…
…Chris Hemworth was in The Saddle Club.
He didn’t play just anyone, no, he played ‘The Hot Vet’.
The hot vet also appeared to be a bit of an arse and a very bad actor but we’ll forgive him because this is TV gold:
Speaking of things to never forget, there’s also the small fact that Chris was on the 2006 season of Dancing With The Stars Australia.
Yep, that’s right, not only is he good looking, talented and has biceps that definitely look like they can keep you safe at night, the guy can dance.
Well, kinda. It’s mostly hilarious and I’m here for all of the Hemsworth DWTS content.
So whenever you’re having a day; whenever you feel as though you’ll never achieve your dreams and that you’re too boring or ugly and insignificant, remember two things:
- You’re beautiful and amazing and capable.
- If Chris Hemsworth can go from The Saddle Club to Hollywood, then so can you.
