He is Hemsworth’s full­time stunt dou­ble, work­ing along­side the Aussie ac­tion hero (in­set) on nine movies over the past six years.

He trans­formed into Hemsworth’s Thor char­ac­ter by weight train­ing twice a day, day eat­ing eight meals a day day, and drink­ing two pro pro­tein shakes as well. “I’m smaller than Chris. I’m 6’1”, 6’ 1 he’s 6’3”, so I have to we wear lifts in my shoes.

““But get­ting into Thor sha shape is a job in it­self, re­ally. Then The you do re­hearsals and per per­form the stunts on a film set set. It’s to­tal ded­i­ca­tion,” Hol­land Ho Hanton said.

““Chris trusts me, I’m in his con­tract, and he takes me around the world. It’s an hon­our to work with som some­one who’s so down to e earth.”
