Attention comic book enthusiasts and fans of really, really, ridiculously good-looking people: Chris Hemsworth is back on home soil, and you can hang out with him.
Well, sort of. On Wednesday, Madame Tussauds Sydney welcomed the iconic Aussie actor and Hollywood heartthrob to their wax-figure family.
The 193cm-tall sculpture is a world-first, taking a dedicated team of over 100 sculptors, artists and stylists to construct over the course of six months. Each individual hair was inserted strand-by-strand, a process that took almost three months alone.
“It’s a really exciting day for Madame Tussauds Sydney as we launch the world-first wax figure of Chris Hemsworth,” Mark Connolly, General Manager at Madame Tussauds Sydney, said in a media release. “Chris Hemsworth is an iconic Australian actor and our guests have long been requesting that we add him to the family.”
While you’re there, be sure to check out the plethora of other wax-figure celebs, like Taylor Swift, Ryan Gosling and Nicole Kidman. Madame Tussauds open daily from 9:30am. For more information, visit the website.
