Chris Hemsworth has proven to be a bit of a local hero since moving to Broken Hill in New South Wales last month to film the Mad Max prequel Furiosa.
The 38-year-old megastar has made regular appearances in the Outback city, chatting with residents and visitors.
And on Friday morning Chris proved once again why he’s one of Australia’s most down-to-earth stars when he stopped to sign autographs with a group of superfans.

Jake Wagenfeller told Daily Mail Australia that he and his friends traveled for ten hours to Broken Hill in hopes of meeting their hero.
Chris had just finished breakfast at 10:30am with his wife Elsa Pataky, 45, when fans approached the star on a Broken Hill street.
Elsa and Chris then spent ten minutes chatting with the fans, posing for photos and signing autographs.
Both stars were ready for the frigid outback winter.

Chris, who looked shaggy in his scrubs, baseball cap and dark glasses, wore a thick fleece parka over a black hoodie and dark pants.
Meanwhile, Elsa looked amazing in a beige sweater and a beautiful leather and wool bomber jacket.
She wore her long blond hair and completed the casual ensemble with sunglasses.

Chris’ co-star Anya Taylor-Joy, of The Queen’s Gambit, has also moved to the city.
Last year, former NSW Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian announced that the highly anticipated Mad Max prequel would be filmed locally.
Production on the film was in full swing at the end of last month.

Huge tents and trailers had been spotted in the Australian outback city in New South Wales.
The prequel’s biggest stars, including Anya Taylor-Joy, and the film’s director, George Miller, arrived in Broken Hill in early May.
Also spotted in the outback location were some of the modified vehicles that would appear in the film, including what appeared to be a vintage car with a machine gun on the roof and a tow truck with a speargun attached.
