Well I guess everyone has to pay their dues!

Check out Thor star Chris Hemsworth back in 2006 when he was a contestant on the Australian version of Dancing With The Stars!

At the time Chris was an up and coming actor with one major credit to his name – long running Aussie soap opera Home And Away (which used to be huge back when I was a kid in the UK). Chris played Kim Hyde on the soap and obviously took on DWTS as a way to expand his brand, before he left the show in 2007.

How did he fare? Well in the end Chris came 6th, beaten out by an Olympic runner, a basketball player and a CHESS CHAMPION!

Oh well – Hemsworth ended up having the last laugh, landing the part of Kirk’s dad in the JJ Abrams Star Trek reboot just two years later. And then of course there was Thor – which I have to admit I enjoyed mightily for a whole host of reasons – not least of which was Chris himself!

Check Chris out in action below….
