Who voices Thor in God of War Ragnarok? God of War Ragnarok is busting out the big guns in terms of Norse mythological figures, with none other than the God of Thunder playing a pivotal role. Thor is a massively popular character, both in mythology and in pop culture, so it stands to reason that his portrayal in this game had to be treated with some gravity. Here is everything you need to know about who voices Thor in God of War Ragnarok.

Thor, at least the concept of the character, needs no introduction. The Norse God of Thunder has dominated pop culture thanks to his prominent use by Marvel, but the Thor of God of War Ragnarok is a much different beast. He is still a powerful god, a son of Odin and wields the hammer Mjolnir. Where he differs greatly is in his personality.

The God of War franchise has always made a point to show the gods of ancient mythologies as they were known to be; capricious, fallible creatures that were just as prone to corruption by power as us lowly humans. Thor in God of War Ragnarok is a killer, a warmonger, and a demon to many. Physically, he is portrayed very differently from Chris Hemsworth's depiction. This Thor has bright red hair, a beard you could write home about, and a belly you could rest your dinner on. What does seem to ring true for both depictions of Thor, is that he is not the brightest bulb on the Yule tree.

Regardless of how awful a person Thor may be, he is still an important and iconic character that many care to see portrayed. When it came to seeking out the right actor to play the God of Thunder, Santa Monica Studio did not mess around. Ryan Hurst is the actor tasked with bringing Thor to life in God of War Ragnarok. He is an actor with over 20 years of experience both in film and television.

Hurst has had many roles over the years, and has appeared in everything from Saved by the Bell to Law and Order SVU and The Walking Dead. He has plenty of experience playing warriors, having appeared in several war films such as Saving Private Ryan and We Were Soldiers. He is perhaps best known for playing Opie Winston in Sons of Anarchy, a role in which his long hair and impressive beard were in full effect, fitting for an actor playing Thor.
