Hollywood hunk turned castaway

FORGET everything you remember about Chris Hemsworth as Thor.

The Hollywood hunk is barely recognisable in his latest role, In the Heart of the Sea. Think Tom Hanks in Castaway.

Inside Weekend magazine, inside Saturday's The Northern Star, Hemsworth talks about his massive transformation as whaler for the on-screen portrayal of a real-life 1820 tragedy which later inspired the literary epic Moby Dick.

Also inside, read about the former fly-in-fly-out worker-turned-children's author on how she overcame dyslexia to produce a series of children's books about FIFO life.

Discover the magic of the Great Barrier Reef and why they call it 'God's aquarium'.
