Liam Hemsworth (info)

Liam Hemsworth
was born on January 13, 1990, in Melbourne, Australia, and is the younger brother of actors Chris Hemsworth and Luke Hemsworth. He is the son of Leonie (van Os), a teacher of English, and Craig Hemsworth, a social-services counselor. He is of Dutch (from his immigrant maternal grandfather), Irish, English, Scottish, and German ancestry. His uncle, by marriage, was Rod Ansell, the bushman who inspired the film Cocodrilo Dundee (1986).

The Hemsworth family lived primarily on Phillip Island, a small island located south of Melbourne. Following in the footsteps of his older brothers, who went into acting in their teens, Liam scored his first audition at age 16 and appeared on the Australian TV series Home and Away (1988) and Las hermanas McLeod's (2001) before taking on a recurring character role on the soap opera Vecinos (1985), in which his brother Luke had also appeared. Roles on TV shows The Elephant Princess (2008) and Satisfaction (2007) followed before Liam moved to the United States to pursue a big-screen career.

After suffering two setbacks - his character was written out of the script for Los mercenarios (2010) days before filming and he lost the title role of Thor (2011) to his brother Chris - Liam was cast opposite Miley Cyrus in the Nicholas Sparks drama La última canción (2010). The two, who played love interests in the film, soon started dating, and Liam appeared in Cyrus' music video "When I Look at You." Following that film's modest commercial success, and the attendant press coverage of his rising career and high-profile romance, he was almost immediately thrust into leading man status, and was cast as Gale Hawthorne in the big-screen adaptation of the best-selling novel Los juegos del hambre (2012). Following the blockbuster success of that film, Liam nabbed a number of roles, including a supporting part in Los mercenarios 2 (2012) and leading roles in the war drama Love and Honor (2013), the crime drama Asalto al furgón blindado (2013), and the thriller El poder del dinero (2013). He will also star as Ali Baba in a 3D production of Arabian Nights and will reprise the role of Gale Hawthorne in Los juegos del hambre: En llamas (2013).

Hemsworth was engaged to Miley Cyrus from June 2012 to September 2013. - IMDb Mini Biography By: Anonymous

Personal Quotes
One of the biggest inspirations before I started shooting came from my brother, when he texted me and said, "Hey, fatty, it's called 'The Hunger Games', not 'The Eating Games'.". So I started working out a lot more and eating a lot less.

Los juegos del hambre (2012) absolutely changed my life. It's brought up so many different questions about my own personal growth and where I was heading. I think, before all of it, I really felt like I had it figured out. Like, you know, it's going to be fine, I'm this person and I know what I want to be and I know where I want to go. But then it got to the point where I think I started double-questioning everything. It was like, why am I doing this? where is it getting me? what if I do this and then I can do this? I wasn't living in the moment.
