Furiosa the movie I'm most proud of, admits Chris Hemsworth
Chris Hemsworth says the upcoming Furiosa movie is the project he is most proud of in his career to date.
The Mad Max: Fury Road prequel will star Anya Taylor-Joy as the title character, who was previously portrayed by Charlize Theron. Furiosa will tell the story of how the character made her way into the clutches of the villain of the first movie, Immortan Joe.
It also stars Hemsworth and some fans have predicted that he may be playing a younger version of Immortan Joe, the tyrant of Fury Road.
Even though the Australian is one of the most popular actors in the world largely due to his performances as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems like Furiosa may mean more to him.
“This, I had read two years before I started shooting, and was in awe of the script,” said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast.
“It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve read, I love George Miller, but I didn’t know who this character was.
“In the build-up, and I’m talking a couple of years, I was scared out of my mind. I’m like, ‘I’m going to derail one of the most iconic franchises…’ I’m gonna bring down Mad Max. It’s gonna be my fault!
“I think the best experience in my career, and something I’m the most proud of too. I put more work into it than anything I’ve ever done, and the collaboration I had with George was just beautiful, and working with Anya was incredible.”
Taylor-Joy proud of Furiosa
Like Hemsworth, the movie's star Taylor-Joy also described working on Furiosa as the best experience of her career.
The Last Night in Soho and Split actress told The Hollywood Reporter.
"It will take me the full two years before the movie comes out to even begin to process what I just left 12 days ago. It was the most life-changing experience that I've ever had, with such talented artists.
"I really felt like I grew so much, but yes, it's wild. It's utterly unique."
