Chris Hemworth’s wife Elsa films Fast 8 with GOT star

CHRIS Hemsworth's wife, Spanish actress and model Elsa Pataky, is currently on set filming Fast 8, and according to her posts on social media, she is having the time of her life.

Elsa Lafuente Medianu, known professionally as Elsa Pataky, lives with her husband and three children on a property bordering  Byron and Balina Shire.

She is best known for her role as Elena Neves in Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6 and Furious 7.

Back to the role of Elena, in Fast 8: the actress shares the screen with stars such as Charlize Theron, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Jason Statham, Ludacris, Michelle Rodriguez, Eva Mendes and Kurt Russell.

Pataky has shared her encounter with two fellow Fast 8 actors on her Instagram account.

The first one: Vin Diesel, who is back to his role of Dominic Toretto.

"First day shooting, Elena... Dom #F8, so much going on! Happy to be back!!" posted Pataky in Instagram yesterday with a video of her and Vin Diesel discussing their first day of filming together.


At CinemaCon 2015, Vin Diesel announced Furious 8 for an April 14, 2017 release date.

The movie will be set in New York City.

It has also been suggested that the movie will honor Paul Walker's wish by going back to more street racing instead of relying on special effects and huge action sequences.


The second one is Kristofer Hivju. The Norwegian actor became world-famous in Season 5 of Game of Thrones as Tormund Giantsbane.

As a big GOT fan, Pataky could not contain her emotion to be filming with the Norwegian actor and have him as his trailer neighbour.

"My trailer neighbour in #F8, for all the people who follow my favourite TV show @gameofthrones, so happy to work with @khivju," she posted this morning on Instagram.


Chris is busy too

Back in Australia, Chris Hemsworth is busy working on the pre-production of his next film, Thor: Ragnarork, to be filmed in the Gold Coast.

Hemsworth's next release will be Ghostbusters, due to be out in cinemas next July 16.
