Despite being Hollywood stars, the Hemsworth brothers are still proud to call Australia home.

And on Sunday, Chris, Liam and Luke took advantage of the warm weather in northern NSW by heading to the beach in Lennox Head, near Byron Bay.

The siblings played a game of beach cricket and kicked a football around a secluded stretch of shoreline along Seven Mile Beach.

Chris, 37, Liam, 30, and Luke, 39, looked relaxed as they enjoyed the Labour Day long weekend, and brought along a cooler box filled with drinks.

The Hemsworths were joined by a host of friends and other family members, including Liam’s girlfriend, Gabriella Brooks.

Liam was seen getting into the zone during a game of beach cricket, licking his upper lip as he concentrated on the ball.

Chris bowled towards his brother, as Liam swung and sent the ball flying into the distance.

The Thor star used his muscular biceps to deliver fastballs, but appeared cautious on his feet due to a recent injury.

His right ankle was bandaged up in a black compression sleeve.

Several family members watched the game from a nearby set-up of camping chairs, but it’s unclear if Chris’ wife, Elsa Pataky, or Luke’s wife, Samantha, were present.

Liam later traded his cricket bat in for an AFL football, which he practised kicking while strolling across the beach.

He shares three children with Spanish actress wife Elsa: twin sons Tristan and Sasha, six, and daughter India Rose, seven.

Luke, a father of three, spends time between Los Angeles and Australia with wife Samantha and their daughters: Harper Rose, eight, Ella, ten, and Holly, 11.

Liam has spent a lot of time in the beach side area, visiting with his brother Chris since his marriage to Miley Cryus broke down last year.

The Hunger Games star debuted his new girlfriend Gabriella Brooks in late 2019, and things appear to have gone from strength to strength ever since.

Liam’s pooch Dora, who he once owned with ex-wife Miley, was also happily roaming around the sandy shoreline off leash.  

It’s the first time he’s been spotted with his beloved pet dog, and It is believed Liam now has pet-custody of the dog.

On Instagram, from a post in December 2019, Liam called Dora his ‘best friend’.

Chris and Elsa’s puppy was also seen running around.

CHRISTOPHER STEVENS: It’s the itchy and scratchy show – with a badger as Homer Simpson

Autumnwatch

Rating: rating showbiz 5

Powering Britain

Rating: rating showbiz 4

Excuse me while I… hang on, that’s the spot… ahh, that’s better. Autumnwatch (BBC2) has got the whole country slobbed out on our sofas, legs splayed as we give our tummies a thorough scratch.

It was the badgers in Chris Packham’s New Forest back garden that started it. Superb low-light cameras, which turn the darkest woodland into a moonlit panorama, are trained on a family group that has turned scratching into a full-time job.

Unaware they are being watched by millions, these wild animals spend most of their evenings in the Homer Simpson position — flat on their backs, one paw raking the fur on their bellies and occasionally stopping to give their claws an appreciative sniff.

Footage submitted by viewers has been the highlight of Autumnwatch, presented by Chris Packham and his stepdaughter Megan McCubbin

Several of the animals are white, as if they can’t even be bothered to put on their stripes. They couldn’t look more human if you gave them a can of beer and a bag of crisps.

Chris misses no opportunity to cut back to the sett and urge us all to join in. ‘No one can see you,’ he teases, though I half suspect he’s somehow rigged up hidden cameras in our homes. Back at Autumnwatch HQ, the team are having a good laugh at us viewers in our onesies, all scratching blissfully.

Footage submitted by viewers has been the highlight so far of this two-week live TV special.

We’ve seen outstanding amateur clips of bitterns stalking through reedbeds, pine martens visiting a campsite bird table to snaffle custard creams, a raven doing acrobatics like a Red Arrow, and —my favourite — a fox popping the foil tops off milk bottles on doorsteps to sip the cream.

Mistaken identity of the night:

‘You’re Craig David! I’m your biggest fan!’ yelled a passerby at O-T Fagbenle, playing a washed-up boy band star in Maxxx (C4). Ouch! I bet Craig winced at that one. This sitcom, first shown on E4 back in April, deserves its repeat on a mainstream channel.

<!—->Advertisement

David Attenborough predicted to me nearly ten years ago that the next wave of great wildlife film-making would come from enthusiasts with budget cameras, and so it is proving.

The next generation of presenters is also arriving, as Chris shares duties with his stepdaughter, 25-year-old Megan McCubbin.

He makes much of his grouchiness, insisting that he relishes this year’s filming restrictions that mean, while he’s in Hampshire, co-star Michaela Strachan is hundreds of miles north in Tentsmuir, Scotland.

‘That’s my idea of social distancing,’ he huffs. But the affection between him and Megan makes warm-hearted TV, as she mocks his little rants and wraps a scarf over his face to shut him up.

Like a grumpy badger getting his ear chewed by a cub, he’s secretly loving it.

Michaela is loving her role, too, studying a colony of grey seals on the Isle of May in the Firth of Forth. It’s pup season and the night-vision cameras are capturing exceptional film of mothers giving birth and protecting their babies from marauding males.

As Chris says: ‘Nature can shine a light in the dark.’ These amazing live pictures are guaranteed to make us feel better . . . if a bit itchy and scratchy.

Powering Britain (BBC2) is a different sort of nature documentary, a series of half-hours concerned with how electricity generated by wind turbines could help save the planet.

BBC weather presenter Keeley Donovan took a trip to Hornsea One wind farm, a power plant the size of Malta in the North Sea, to see the turbines being constructed. Before she flew out, she had to practise the safety drill for surviving a helicopter splashdown — plunged into a freezing pool while strapped in like a crash-test dummy.

Then she climbed a turbine, to perch hundreds of feet above the stormy seas. Fans of Blue Peter will love this style of presenting — and John Noakes would be proud of Keeley.

BAZ BAMIGBOYE: A perfect Paris match for the boss from hell

baz bamigboye a perfect paris match for the boss from hell

Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu has gained legions of fans thanks to her scene-stealing performance as Sylvie Grateau, Lily Collins’s ultra-cool boss in the much-talked about Netflix show, Emily In Paris.

Eagle-eyed Sylvie runs the office of luxury marketing company Savoir, where Emily has been transplanted from her home in the American Midwest.

The Parisienne clashes with Emily over her modern ideas, including using Instagram to promote her fashionista clients.

‘I think Sylvie’s afraid of Emily, but she also admires her boldness,’ the 57-year-old actress said from her home in lockdown Paris on Wednesday. 

‘She was somebody who was bold herself when she was younger.

‘I think there’s also jealousy that has to do with seeing someone waltzing into her office. But eventually she’s sees Emily’s not making all the wrong choices.’

Leroy-Beaulieu also feels that Sylvie has an underlying warmth about her. ‘It was easy for me to relate to that,’ she said. But ‘underlying’ is the operative word. Concealing Sylvie’s soft centre is that ‘whole walking around being rude’ thing, and she conceded that bit of the performance ‘was kind of easier, because Parisians are like that’.

When I interviewed Darren Star, who created Emily In Paris (which is still available to stream, by the way) he described Sylvie as a ‘grade-A bitch’; but one who ‘looks fantastic’. Leroy-Beaulieu roared with laughter when I recounted that conversation. ‘I think she is a bitch! Who doesn’t love bitches?!’

She continued: ‘I know a lot of these women. Obviously, they have this enormous vulnerability, which they cannot show. And also a lot of these women had to sacrifice their family, or love, or whatever, so they could be really tough and powerful. They had to carry that pain around, but it can’t show … because they’re powerful!’

Warming to her theme, she added: ‘So they wear all these clothes and jewellery, and they walk in a certain way, just to hide their vulnerability.

‘People who are strong don’t need to shout about it. But Sylvie needs to put on a show.’

Leroy-Beaulieu grew up in an artistic household. Her father, Philippe Leroy, was an actor. Her mother, Francoise Laurent, ran her own line of fashion accessories — jewellery, knitwear and bags — for Marc Bohan, the creative force at Dior. The actress wore some of her mother’s gems in the show.

I told Philippine I detected echoes of golden-age stars such as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in Philippine’s Sylvie; plus a nod and a wink to Meryl Streep’s Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada. ‘Bette Davis was on my mind a lot,’ she agreed.

When I apologised for this line of discussion — a female boss’s outfits, or her psychology — when I’m unlikely to ask the same of a male actor, she put me at ease. 

‘I’m not against the fact that a woman can be well dressed, and we can talk about it. It’s nice!

‘Being French, I’m happy that we have beautiful clothes, and beautiful fashion, and I think a woman’s body — when it’s well dressed — is beautiful to watch. I’m not offended. I’m not that kind of a feminist!’

She then gave me a tutorial on the secret of how French women manage to look so effortlessly chic. Not for me, dear reader! But for all of you. 

‘It’s about a mixture of comfort and beauty. You can’t be beautiful if you’re not comfortable. Your face is going to look like you’re tired of wearing heels. It has to be a mixture of highly chic, but also super comfortable.’

Leroy-Beaulieu wouldn’t discuss her private life, except to tell me that she has a grown-up daughter who is an artist, but ‘not at all in showbusiness’. 

‘That’s all I’m going to say,’ she declared.

Let’s hope we see more of Philippine, whenever it’s possible to film the second season of Emily In Paris, in the City of Lights.

The boys are back in town!

The Jersey Boys musical is working its way back into London, nearly four years after it closed at the Piccadilly Theatre. 

‘We were ready to come back the day after we left,’ joked Michael David, co-founder of Broadway partnership the Dodgers, one of the show’s producers.

David, speaking from New York, said that Howard Panter and Rosemary Squires made him an offer he couldn’t refuse: the chance to open the newly reconfigured — and newly named — Trafalgar Theatre, with previews from April 14 (subject to Government guidelines). The hope is that the show will be able to perform with no social distancing, but strict safety procedures in place.

David said that a special clause had been written into the contract with the Trafalgar ensuring that the show will only open with full capacity seating. If social distancing restrictions are still in force in April, the Jersey Boys will wait until they’ve been lifted.

As with Broadway, David told me ‘we can’t pay our bills if we are socially distanced’.

The production features 20 or so people on stage, plus the same number backstage, and it should be a boost for freelancers onstage and backstage, who have not earned a penny since theatres shut back in March.

David said he hoped director Des McAnuff, choreographer Sergio Trujillo and other members of the original creative team will be able to travel from the U.S. for rehearsals.

Casting will start soon for the show, based on 1950s and 1960s heart-throbs Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, their music, and how one of their members had links to organised crime.

Songs include Working My Way Back To You, Fallen Angel and Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You (still love the way that number was used in The Deer Hunter).

BAZ BAMIGBOYE: It’s many Abbey returns for Downton’s dowager

Maggie Smith will return to Downton Abbey for the Dowager’s last hurrah, in a film sequel that’s set to shoot in the spring.

The Downton movie, released last September, included a moving scene where Violet Crawley, the Dowager Countess of Grantham, confided to her granddaughter Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) that she was sick and ‘may not have long to live’.

Fans of the picture, based on the blockbuster television drama, assumed they would never see Violet again, and that any follow-up film would not feature the deliciously sharp-tongued matriarch.

However, the great dame has agreed to put on Violet’s posh frocks once again for a final outing.

She’ll be joined by her screen family, including Hugh Bonneville’s Lord Grantham and Elizabeth McGovern, as his wife Cora. Lady Mary will return (along with Matthew Goode as her husband Henry), as will her sister Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael).

Penelope Wilton’s cousin Isobel and Allen Leech’s Branson will also be back; along with trusted retainers Jim Carter (Mr Carson), Phyllis Logan (Mrs Carson, nee Hughes), Mr Bates (Brendan Coyle) and his wife Anna (Joanne Froggatt).

In the meantime, despite her very British stiff upper lip as Lady Mary, Michelle Dockery has been spreading her wings across the Atlantic to play the American mother of a boy accused of murder, alongside Chris Evans (Marvel’s Captain America), in the Apple TV+ mini-series Defending Jacob.

Downton will shoot from March until May next year under strict Covid-secure safety protocols. Maggie — who will be 86 by the time filming starts — will have a bubble of her own, to keep her extra safe.

Creator Julian Fellowes told me just before the quarantine that he had written a draft script. And during the summer, Carmichael teased that he had been ‘polishing’ the screenplay during the lockdown.

Scripts were sent out to cast members last month; and casting has begun for the film’s guest stars.

Imelda Staunton and Tuppence Middleton were introduced in key roles in last year’s picture, and they’ll be back, too.

Producers at Carnival Film and Television and Universal’s Focus Features want to film in spring because it’s the best ‘availability window’ for the cast and creative team.

It’s a hymn from her says Lolita to Adrian

Award-winning playwright Lolita Chakrabarti has written a new play, called Hymn, that will star her husband, Adrian Lester — fresh from hit BBC1 series Life — at the Almeida Theatre in January.

The couple (pictured right) last collaborated on the acclaimed Red Velvet, which originated at the Kiln and went on to the West End and Brooklyn.

Hymn is about ‘two men who meet at a funeral and find out that they have much in common’, Chakrabarti told me yesterday. It explores the relationship between Gil, who runs a stationery store (Lester) and Benny, a logistics adviser (who’ll be played by Danny Sapani).

‘It’s love between men that’s nether physical nor romantic,’ Chakrabarti said of the piece, which Blanche McIntyre will direct, with performances beginning from January 29. As the title suggests, there’s music, too. Chakrabarti described it as a ‘virtuoso piece for two actors who could sing, act and know how to move’.

Hymn is one of three productions that will relaunch the Islington-based Almeida. Director Rebecca Frecknall and dramatist Chris Bush (who penned the Crucible hit Standing At The Sky’s Edge), started work on Tuesday on Nine Lessons And Carols, a play examining themes of isolation and connection (though it’s not about Covid. 

They’re devising it with six actors — Naana Agyei Ampadu, Katie Brayben, Toheeb Jimoh, Elliot Levey, Maimuna Memon and Luke Thallon — and it will run from December 2. Almeida members can book seats from November 6; general sale opens on November 12.

And British-Lebanese writer Carmen Nasr has written The Maladies, which will be performed by the Almeida Young Company between January 18 and 22, with Diyan Zora directing.

Celebrated director and choreographer Arlene Phillips, with producer Paul Taylor-Mills, put on an outdoor production of the show, by Gerome Ragni and James Rado, last month at the Turbine in Battersea, South London. 

Taylor-Mills, the Turbine’s artistic director, told me that due to the pandemic, it was felt it would not be appropriate for the cast to appear nude. 

But he added: ‘Layton Williams said he’d been practising taking his clothes off in the mirror at home, so I’m not entirely sure now that there won’t be disrobing!’ Tickets available from the LW Theatres website now.

Jodie Prenger, who has written the Turbine’s naughty panto Cinderella: The Socially Distanced Ball, with Neil Hurst. Lizzy Conolly will direct Prenger’s Christmas treat at the venue from November 26 to December 23, using socially-distanced bubbles. 

Oscar Conlon-Morrey and Scott Paige will play the Ugly Sisters, Rufus Hound is Buttons, Debbie Kurup Prince Charming; Sean Parkins is the fairy, and Daisy Wood-Davis Cinderella. 

Prenger wrote the show for Turbine boss Taylor-Mills, who told me, ‘it’s not for the faint hearted,’ and definitely not suitable for under 18s. That may be, but I’ll fight for a seat when they go on sale at 10am today on the Turbine’s website.
