Luke Hemsworth (born 5 November 1980 in Melbourne, Australia) is an Australian actor.

Known mainly for his assorted roles in Australian film and television, he appeared on the soap opera Neighbours sporadically through 2001 and 2008 as the characters Nathan Tyson and John Carter.

As of 2016, he's currently starring on the HBO series Westworld as Ashley Stubbs.

He is the eldest brother of actors Liam and Chris Hemsworth.


Selected filmography:


He provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Casting Gag: His cameo in Thor: Ragnarok as an actor portraying his brother Chris's character Thor in Loki's stage play. Doubly so, as their other brother Liam was originally up for the part.
  • Lesser Star: In the sense that, despite being the eldest Hemsworth brother and the one who's been acting professionally the longest, he's easily the one who's least known to the general public. This is attributed to his choice to act mostly in films in his native Australia, while Chris and Liam broke into Hollywood relatively early (aside from a cameo in a Saturday Night Live episode hosted by Chris, Westworld was the first American project Luke signed in).
  • Star-Making Role: Before Westworld, he was unknown to American audiences, being known mainly as the older brother of Chris and Liam.
  • You Look Familiar: After he departed from Neighbours in 2002, he returned six years later to play a different character.
