He appeared in the American film The Last Song, released on 31 March 2010. Hemsworth's elder brothers, Chris Hemsworth and Luke Hemsworth, also became actors and provided a path for Hemsworth to emulate.

Early life:

Hemsworth, born in 1990, was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. When Hemsworth was in year 8, he and his family relocated to Phillip Island. After finishing school, Hemsworth worked in construction, laying floors for six months before he began acting.

Hemsworth's older brothers Chris Hemsworth and Luke Hemsworth are also actors. Hemsworth says that there is competition between them, it is friendly: 'We are brothers and we are always competitive, but it is a good thing, it pushes us both and we are always happy whenever someone books something.' In 2009, Liam moved to the United States to pursue his career there. He and his brother Chris first stayed in the guest house of Chris Hemsworth's agent William Ward before renting their own Los Angeles apartment in which they currently reside.

During the week of July 8, 2007, Hemsworth began filming a two month long spot on the Australian soap opera "Neighbours", which his brother Luke had already starred in. Hemsworth also voiced 'Marcus' in the television series "The Elephant Princess" and had roles in the television series "Satisfaction", "Home and Away", "McLeod's Daughters" and has starred in the movies "Knowing" and "Triangle".
