Chris Hemsworth’s little-known role in iconic Australian series The Saddle Club is revealed as resurfaced footage from 2003 goes viral

He became a global star after landing the role of Thor in the Marvel Universe franchise in 2011.

But years before making it in Hollywood, Chris Hemsworth enjoyed a little-known stint on popular Australian children’s series The Saddle Club.

Resurfaced footage shows the actor, 39, portraying dreamy vet George Whiteside in an episode that aired back in May 2003.

Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle this week, Lara Jean Marshall, who played straight A student Lisa Atwood in the series, gushed over the small role Chris had on the show.

‘I just remember we were all just kind of in shock at how good-looking he was. He was just like, this blonde God,’ she said.

‘It was only a guest star role for one episode, but he came on and he was being a vet and being caring to the horse and I think we all just kind of forgot our lines around him because he was just so gorgeous.’

‘And then, of course, we’d all just be kind of drooling and he’d be like, ‘I’m just getting away from you girls. Like, I need to move away from you”.

The Saddle Club aired on the ABC from 2001 to 2009, and followed the lives of three best friends training to compete as equestrians at the fictional Pine Hollow Stables.

Chris also starred as Kim Hyde in Channel Seven soap Home and Away from 2004 to 2007.

Two years after leaving the drama, he landed a breakout role in JJ Abrams’ Star Trek.

The part gave him worldwide recognition, and by 2011, he signed on to play superhero Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However Chris recently told Variety that his career could have taken a different direction, as he auditioned for two major Hollywood roles before being cast as Thor.

The father-of-three said he got ‘very close’ to playing GI Joe, and was also considered for the role of Gambit in the Wolverine movies.

Both opportunities came at a time when Chris was struggling to find work in the movie industry and was, by his own admission, ‘running out of money’.

Chris believes that, had he landed either of those roles, he may not have been considered for the character of Thor.

‘I got very close to GI Joe. I got very close to Gambit in the Wolverine X-Men movies,’ he explained.

‘At the time I was upset (by the rejection). But if I played either of those characters, I wouldn’t have been able to play Thor.’
