So here at FemaleFirst we take a look at some of the actors who have made a very powerful impression and what lies ahead for them.
Chris Hemsworth made his breakthrough this year in spectacular fashion as he took on the role of Thor as the marvel hero was brought to the big screen for the first time.
Hemsworth mixed well the action, emotional and comic elements of the movie to make Thor one of the most successful blockbusters of 2011.
And Thor is a character that he is set to reprise in next summer as he joins the all star cast of The Avengers, which also includes Robert Downey Jr,Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo.
Away from marvel movies and the actor will join a second all star cast next summer for Snow White and the Huntsman.
The movie is a new take on the popular story Snow White and Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron are also on the cast list.
This summer saw the return of Pirates of the Caribbean to the big screen as On Stranger Tides marked the fourth instalment of the hit franchise.
Sam Claflin was one of the new names on the cast list as he took on the ‘Orlando Bloom’ type role this time around.
To kick off your career with a movie that makes over $1 billion at the box office is not bad going and that success looks set to continue into next year.
In 2012 we are going to see him mix movie roles with TV as he is set to star in series White Heat before returning to the big screen in Snow White and the Huntsman - as Prince William.
