Liam was raised in Australia by his mother Leonie, who worked as an English teacher. His father, Craig Hemsworth, was a social service counselor.
Liam, who is the youngest of the three Hemsworth actors, has said that although they sometimes compete for roles, family comes first.
“We are brothers and we are always competitive, but it is a good thing, it pushes us and we are always happy whenever someone books something,” he said.
In March 2009, Hemsworth left Australia to pursue an acting career in the United States. He stayed with his brother’s manager’s guest house before he rented his own apartment in Los Angeles.
