Born on January 13, 1990 in Melbourne, Australia, Liam Hemsworth spent his childhood there, then from the age of 8, on Phillip Island, where his family moved in and where he now spends most of his free time surfing with his older brothers Chris and Luke. At the age of 16, he decided to follow in the footsteps of his two brothers and become an actor.
He began his career in commercials and then landed the role of Josh Taylor in the Australian soap opera The Neighbours (2007-2008), a series in which his brother Luke had already appeared in 2002. Then he landed the role of Marcus in the Australian television series His Highness Alex (2008) and appeared in the cast of the television series Satisfaction (2009) and two films: Triangle (2009), a British horror film and Predictions (2009) where he made a brief appearance.
The year 2009 also marks a turning point in the actor’s film career, as he leaves his native Australia with his brother Chris to settle in Los Angeles. Barely a month after his arrival, in May 2009 he landed the lead role of Will Blakelee in the dramatic film The Last Song alongside Miley Cyrus. Miley Cyrus quickly becomes more than just a screen partner: for her, he leaves his longtime girlfriend who learns of the break-up… through the media. In August 2009, he makes an appearance in Miley’s music video for the song When I Look at You. In 2012, he is cast in two of the biggest productions of the year: Hunger Games, the first part of the adaptation of the successful literary trilogy. He plays the role of Gale Hawthorne, the heroine’s best friend, Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence. He also stars in the hard-hitting film The Expendables 2.
On the private side, on December 23, 2018, after several years of an on-off love story, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are getting married.
