Biography of Liam Hemsworth

Liam Hemsworth is a popular Australian actor who was able to truly become famous by moving to America. Despite the fact that his brother Chris Hemsworth is much more popular than Liam, he still did not use his fame for personal gain. The actor tried to independently achieve success in the film industry. The guy is actively engaged in self-development and does not miss the opportunity to show his talent in various projects. He managed to become world famous thanks to filming in four parts of the sensational film “The Hunger Games”.

Childhood and family of Liam Hemsworth

Liam, the youngest of three Hemsworth brothers, was born in Melbourne. His mother, Leonie, was an English teacher at school, and his father, Craig, was a social worker. Brother Luke was ten years older than Liam, the middle son Chris was six and a half.

The Hemsworth brothers spent their childhood in the provincial town of Bulman. The actor admitted that his very first vivid memories were buffaloes and crocodiles, which they watched in the Northern Territory. While the parents worked on the ranch, the boys themselves came up with entertainment for themselves.

There was no TV in their house, so the brothers went to the mountains, where they made weapons for themselves and played “war”. The older brothers always gave Liam a head start so that he could hide from the “robbers” or “Indians”, and then chased the baby throughout the forest. Then Liam woke up, in his words, “a love of adventure and fantastic stories.”

Over time, the games of the brothers became more and more dangerous: Liam recalled that he once almost killed Chris by throwing a sharp knife in his direction. Relatives called the younger Hemsworths “devil’s children” and threatened that they would force them to undergo an exorcism. To prevent dangerous situations from recurring, Craig and Leoni separated the tomboys during the holidays and sent them to different relatives.

The Hemsworth family periodically moved from Melbourne to Bullman, then from Bullman to Melbourne, and when Liam was 8 years old, his parents settled on Phillip Island, where they bought a small house. Here, the younger Hemsworth developed two passions – acting and surfing.

After the lessons, Liam went to catch a wave with his father and brothers: “We were constantly busy surfing, and, frankly, this is the best option for childhood. We caught waves before school and after school…”. At school, the boy was engaged in a theater group and played in all the performances, and at the age of 12 he even went to his first casting, which, however, ended in failure for the boy.

Luke was the first to fly out of his parents’ house: he returned to Melbourne and soon everyone saw him in the popular Australian soap opera Neighbors, where the aspiring actor got the role of football player Nathan Tyson. Soon, Chris also appeared there, playing the robber Jamie Kane. “Neighbours” did not bypass the younger Liam – he appeared on the screens in the form of surfer Josh Taylor.

It was the first time that the brothers’ career paths had crossed, but by no means the last. They often competed with each other both on the set and in life: “We are competitors in everything from backyard cricket and football to who controls the TV remote control. From the outside, our relationship looks like a balance on the verge of love and hate.” But when one of the brothers was invited to audition, the whole family was worried: “We always help each other with castings, we work on the script together,” Liam said.

In 2010, Sylvester Stallone himself chose the young actor as his partner in the film The Expendables. This film was supposed to be the American hallmark of 19-year-old Hemsworth, but, ironically, all the scenes with his participation were cut.

However, Liam did not envy his brother, but continued to go to auditions. As a result, the producers of the Hunger Games franchise liked his type, and Hemsworth was approved for the role of Gale Hawthorne, a childhood friend of Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence.

The Hunger Games brought Liam Hemsworth the MTV Breakthrough Award. After that, a new stage began in his career. Firstly, he still became Stallone’s partner in the sequel to The Expendables with the role of sniper Billy Timmons.

This was followed by the action movie “Empire State”, where Liam Hemsworth was again listed as a leading actor. And in 2013, he played along with the masters of Hollywood – Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford – in the psychological thriller Paranoia. He reincarnated as a typical office worker, who was destined to become a victim in the game of two media moguls.

In the same year, he returned to work on the sequel to The Hunger Games, although the role, according to him, was only a small piece of the plot puzzle. However, the third part of the franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay I, breathed new life into his character: Gale’s relationship with the characters of Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence changed, and new facets of his character were revealed. {

} In 2014, the film “On the Edge” was released: the audience again witnessed the rapidly developing relationship between the characters of Hemsworth and Palmer, but this time under the sauce of the “thriller” genre. However, the picture went unnoticed, unlike the independent film The Dressmaker, released in 2015, where Kate Winslet herself became Liam’s partner.

In June 2009, the actor began a serious relationship with his colleague in the film “The Last Song” – Miley Cyrus. “When filming started, I couldn’t understand why Miley’s trailer was constantly besieged by journalists with cameras, and when she leaves the dressing room, everyone literally goes crazy.

The couple dated for several years, and at the end of May 2012, an announcement appeared in the press about their engagement.

The beginning of the phrase “If he fails, at least fails while daring greatly” is tattooed on Liam’s arm, while Miley imprinted the continuation on his forearm: “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat” (“In his place there will be no timid souls who will never know victory or defeat”)
