Chris Hemsworth was hard to spot on the bustling film set of George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road prequel, Furiosa.

The action-movie Adonis, 38, was almost unrecognisable in a red beard and prosthetic nose as he filmed the post-apocalyptic blockbuster at a remote site in Kurnell, south of Sydney’s CBD, on Saturday.

Gone was Chris’ iconic blond Thor wig, replaced by a head of fiery locks, while his eyebrows appeared to be tinted red for the role.

Chris’ day on set was a family affair, with his wife Elsa Pataky, 45, their twin sons Tristan and Sasha, eight, and daughter India Rose, ten, and Chris’ father Craig Hemsworth, 67, all taking part in the film. 

Elsa and her sons were seen strolling around the eye-popping set dressed in dishevelled rags, while Craig wore a leather biker jacket and distressed black jeans.

Also spotted on-set were Australian actors Angus Sampson, who starred in Mad Max: Fury Road, and Ian Roberts, who has not appeared in the franchise so far.

One person who wasn’t hard to locate amid the hubbub was director Miller, who stood out like a sore thumb in his bright red windbreaker and black scarf.

Miller has described the prequel as ‘a saga,’ that will be told over a 15-year period, which is much different from Fury Road, which spanned three days in its timeframe.

Meanwhile, a development application (DA) to the Sutherland Shire Council indicates that filming in Kurnell is expected to last until October.

Last year, former NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced the highly anticipated Mad Max prequel would be filmed locally.
