Chris Hemsworth’s hunky cousin Luke Van Os reveals the secret piece of advice the Hollywood star gave him ahead of his Home and Away debut

    Chris Hemsworth’s handsome cousin Luke Van Os was revealed as joining the cast of the renowned Australian serial Home and Away in October of last year.

    And on Wednesday, the 25-year-old revealed to Confidential the precious piece of advice he received from the Thor star after learning he had landed the play.

    ‘Just be calm. And embrace it, know that the nerves never go away – it is becoming comfortable with the nerves as opposed to fearing them,’ Van Os recalled Chris, 38, saying to him.

    Chris, who landed one of his first acting roles in Summer Bay, is also providing his support from afar, according to him.

    ‘Chris is in Los Angeles, but he saw my appearances on The Morning Show and Sunrise.’ Van Os told the publication, “I spoke to him just before because I was so frightened.”

    And Chris isn’t the only Hemsworth sibling that believes in Luke.

    ‘Liam and Luke have been a huge support as well… This industry is so tricky and can be so hard to navigate so to have any sort of solid advice from anyone who has been through it is such a blessing,’ he added.

    Luke is linked to the Hemsworths because his father Robert is their mother Leonie’s brother.

    Luke announced in October that he would be joining the cast of Home and Away, the show on which Chris played Kim Hyde from 2004 to 2007.

    ‘I’m so excited to finally announce that I will be joining the Home and Away team,’ Luke said on Instagram at the time.

    ‘My character Xander has a close tie with one of the Summer Bay favourites. I can’t thank the amazing cast, crew and Channel Seven for making me feel so welcomed into this long running family.

    ‘Thank you to my friends, family, and team for their unwavering support throughout this long trip; now the real job begins.’ In 2022, keep an eye out for Xander on the big screen.’

    In the comments portion of his Instagram post at the time, Chris complimented his cousin.

    ‘Congrats mate that’s epic,’ Chris said.

    Chris practiced lines with Luke over Zoom before his audition, Luke previously told The Daily Telegraph.

    Luke told the publication, “When I was invited for a comeback for the chemistry test, I actually zoomed with Chris the night before and we ran it (the scene) and kind of just got into a good headspace.”

    ‘His advise was to be nice, put in the work, and the work doesn’t stop now,’ Luke recalled of his renowned relative.

    Luke also expressed gratitude for his cousins Chris, Liam, 31, and Luke, 41, who have succeeded in their jobs and provide him with ‘insights’ into the industry.

    ‘It is good that they have paved the way for me because I have got all of their insights so they have been a huge help over the years. I am fortunate,’ he said.
