Thor Ragnarok actor Cate Blanchett: I’ve never met a more generous, egoless performer than Chris Hemsworth
Oscar-winning actor Cate Blanchett had fun working with actor Chris Hemsworth in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, and says she has “never met a more generous and egoless performer than” him.
“People assume because we’re Australian, and a relatively small company of actors often working abroad, that we all know one another. But I had never met Chris. We’ve got friends in common, but I’d never met him. I don’t know if I have got any particular anecdotes except that I’ve never met a more generous, egoless performer than Chris,” Blanchett said in a statement.
Blanchett is essaying the fantastical character of Hela, a female villain in the film, and Hemsworth will be back as Thor with the film. “He’s incredible to work with. He holds this whole behemoth together. Like a lot of us are riding on his shoulders and what shoulders they are. I mean he can carry us. But he’s so easy. His performance seems effortless but of course it’s not,” Blanchett said.
Cate Blanchett has won two Academy Awards – Best Supporting Actress Oscar for ‘The Aviator’ and Best Actress Oscar for ‘Blue Jasmine’. She is also known for playing the role of Galadriel in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy and its prequel ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy.
