This is what Thor and Loki say in Russian version of the film.
“I auditioned for Thor, and I didn’t get called back. I was intimidated by the director, Kenneth Branagh—to me, he is Shakespeare. My brother, Liam, was luckier. He was one of the final five guys up for the part, but none of them were quite right. My manager said, ‘If you liked Liam, maybe you’ll also like his older brother.’ This time, I was pissed off. I didn’t care about Shakespeare anymore; swagger got me the part.”

If it looked like Chris Hemsworth wasn’t just acting during his passionate kiss at the end of the credits on “Thor: The Dark World” - it’s because he wasn’t.
Co-star Natalie Portman revealed to the Daily News that due to a scheduling conflict she couldn’t reprise her role as Thor’s mortal girlfriend in time to film the scene. So a special stunt double filled in - Hemsworth’s real-life wife, “Fast & Furious 6” actress Elsa Pataky.
“It was for reshoots (after the film was finished) and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn’t get there because I was working on my own film,” Portman told the News.
“And so they put his wife in my wig and costume, that’s why it was so passionate.” [x]
