Marvel’s ‘Thor’ Actor Chris Hemsworth taking break from acting after revealing Alzheimer’s risk

This week, the actor disclosed that he has a genetic propensity for the condition. He learned of the possibility while filming the docuseries Limitless and after undergoing a number of genetic tests.

Hemsworth was informed by doctors on the show that he carries two copies of a gene closely linked to dementia related to Alzheimer’s, which is only expected to affect 3% of the population.

Hemsworth stated in a recent interview with Vanity Fair that despite the fact that “it’s not like I’ve been handed my resignation,” he has made the decision to take a break from acting in the wake of the revelation.
