Liam Hemsworth turned 23 today!!
The Australian actor, who is best known for his role as Gale in the movie The Hunger Games, was born and raised in Melbourne, where he spent most of his days surfing with his brothers, Luke and Chris Hemsworth.
Hemsworth moved to Los Angeles at the age of 19 to audition for a role in Thor but lost it to his own brother, and then obtained a role in the Nicholas Sparks' book adaptation of the same name, The Last Song that same week.
After acting alongside Miley Cyrus in The Last Song, Hemsworth got a role in the singer's music video "When I Look at You."
Acting in small parts in Knowing and British film Triangle, Lionsgate chose him to play Gale Hawthorne in The Hunger Games, with co-stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson.
The actor is now engaged to co-star Miley Cyrus, whom he dated for almost 3 years prior to their engagement.
Using his credibility for a good cause, Hemsworth was an ambassador to Australian Childhood Foundation. He praised his own father, who had been working for child protection, as a significant role to reinforce the importance of child safety.
