Chris Hemsworth : From ‘Thor’ to legendary Huntsman


He will not be wielding a hammer but an axe / sword instead. He is not the son of Odin but the Huntsman who was tasked by the evil queen Ravenna to follow Snow White and bring her to the queen so that her heart can be consumed. Sounds twisted? well, this is not your usual fairy tale... This is much better! :)

Hemsworth play as the Huntsman name Eric, even though he is now a mercenary and a drunk, the Huntsman knows the Enchanted and Dark Forests like the back of his hands. Finding out the Queen's plans, he ended up training Snow White, a young woman who is determined to end what Ravenna began. 
Hemsworth got the role also because of his role as the Thor. The film makers said his charisma and on-screen presence convinced them that he could embody the tortured former soldier who finds salvation in a young woman called Snow White. With his attitude, humor, intensity and physical presence, Hemsworth proved he could bring life to the character and serve as the ideal balance between Stewart and Theron. 

Discussing his part, Hemsworth says: “The Huntsman is a lost soul. He has given up on life and himself. When we first meet him, he’s a drunk, living alone in the woods working as a mercenary, hunting and tracking. He is then assigned the role of finding Snow White and bringing her back to the Queen.” Offering his reason for tackling the role, Hemsworth states: “I liked the idea of playing the reluctant hero: rough around the edges but with a good heart underneath. We tried to push the inconsistencies of his character, keep him unpredictable.”

Added trivia: Although Hemsworth and Stewart carefully practiced their fight scenes together, mistakes were made during production. During a particularly vigorous take, Stewart accidentally punched the seasoned kickboxer in the face. His nose swelled up, and his wound had to be covered up with makeup. Stewart was truly a match for this Huntsman.
