For Chris Hemsworth, “Thor: Love and Thunder” wound up being a family affair. The actor revealed that two of his kids — 10-year-old daughter India and one of his 8-year-old twin boys — have roles in the upcoming Marvel film. Though he didn’t specify which of his sons, Sasha or Tristan, makes a cameo, Hemsworth confirmed that one of them portrays a younger version of his character Thor, while India plays a character named Love.

“It’s really cool; they really wanted to be in it,” Hemsworth said in a recent interview with entertainment reporter Kevin McCarthy. He added that the kids of several other costars — Taika Waititi (Korg), Christian Bale (Gorr the God Butcher), and Natalie Portman (Jane Foster/Mighty Thor) — also appear in the movie, though he didn’t divulge their roles. “It felt like a one-off fun family experience. I don’t want them to now go and be child stars and actors. It was just a special experience we all had, and they loved it. They had a great time.”
“…Taika had his children in there. Christian Bale had his. Natalie had…her kids as well. That’s my daughter…as well. She plays the character of Love…”

Earlier this week, Hemsworth brought twins Tristan and Sasha and wife Elsa Pataky to the “Thor: Love and Thunder” premiere in his home country of Australia. They posed on the red carpet together, marking one of the few times the Hemsworth kiddos have made a public appearance with their parents.
“Thor: Love and Thunder” hits theaters on July 8 and also stars Hemsworth’s older brother, Luke, in addition to Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Russell Crowe as Zeus, and many more. Though fans have speculated that the film could be Hemsworth’s last time suiting up as the hammer-wielding superhero, the actor consistently shares his love for playing Thor. “I’ll do it until someone says get off the stage,” he told Deadline. “I love it.”
