Thor actor Christ Hemsworth is taking a break after almost thirteen years of non-stop work in films. Since his film debut in Star Trek, the best Hemsworth has worked on a movie every year since 2009, except for 2014. As one of the faces who helped bring people into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he was one of the remaining foundational pieces left.

This change is because while working on the Disney+ series Limitless, in the fifth episode of the series, Hemsworth meets with a doctor and reveals he has a genetic predisposition for Alzheimer’s. To quote the Vanity Fair report: “His makeup includes two copies of the gene APOE4, one from his mother, the other from his father, which studies have linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.”
