Chris Hemsworth goes from Thor to ‘lost soul’ in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’


“Thor” and “Avengers” star Chris Hemsworth returns this summer as the Huntsman in a Snow White adaptation starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron. In an interview posted yesterday, the Australian actor explained his character and working with acclaimed director Rupert Sanders.

During an interview with Flicks and Bits posted Saturday Hemsworth described his Huntsman at the beginning of “Snow White and the Huntsman”.

“The Huntsman is a bit of a lost soul. We meet him at the beginning of the film and he’s quite the drunk, he’s living in the woods on his own. He’s paid as a mercenary to hunt people down and he’s forced and threatened into hunting down Snow White.”

Rupert Sanders, a commercial director, is described as a state-of-the-art visualist, so Hemsworth added his opinions of Sanders on his first feature film.

“He knows how to tell such a vivid story in such a short amount of time with such great imagery. Everyday we’d be on set and he’d be like, “What if we put the camera up here and you do this,” he’d improvise with it and just get amazing, amazing shots. You either have an eye for those kind of things or you don’t. He just sees the world from a different point of view. Joining the film, I loved the script, and then I met with Rupert and saw visually how creative he was. We had a lot of discussions about character and story and I was inspired by him. I love these sort of films; big, fantastical, epic stories that have a real heart at the center of them.”

“Snow White and the Huntsman” stars Stewart, Hemsworth, Theron, Sam Claflin, Noah Huntley, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Steven Graham, and Nick Frost.

The film arrives in cinemas June 1st.
