Thor (Chris Hemsworth) admits his rivalry with his younger brother Liam Hemsworth pushed him to go for the role of Thor. Thor also confessed he messed up his first audition for the role of Thor. Hemsworth said:
“I came into the audition with Kenneth Branagh and thought I nailed it and then never heard anything back. Months went by and then my brother, my little brother, Liam, was in Australia and sent a tape across and he got a call back, then another call back and then was down to the last kind of four or five people for it,” .
“I remember sitting in Vancouver, shooting Cabin in the Woods with Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon. Both of them were looking at the trades at this sort of top five guys for Thor and saying, ‘Why aren’t you in the mix here? What happened?’ I said, ‘I don’t know. I blew my audition I guess.’”
“I came in kind of with a little, I guess, motivation and maybe frustration that my little brother had gotten further than me. It’s a little family, sibling rivalry sort of kicked up in me. Then it moved pretty quick from there. It was cool.”
Today, Thor is one of the MCU’s most prominent heroes, and his younger brother Liam Hemsworth , is not doing bad either in the Hollywood industry. Thor will be dominating the screen again in November 3, which his third movie Thor: Ragnarok will be released.
