Australian actor Chris Hemsworth is to make his CBeebies debut telling the story of a little bear who is frightened of the rain and thunder.
Actor Chris, who is best known for his role as Thor, and has three children of his own with wife Elsa Pataky, says: “I love nothing more than reading bedtime stories to my children and it was a joy to get to read Stormy Night, a story about a little bear who is scared of storms.
“Even though I know a thing or two about thunder and lightning, I always feel better when the storm passes.”
Chris’ appearance on the nightly slot was teased by @CBeebiesHQ on social media with a silhouetted figure and the caption “You asked. We delivered. Can you guess who?”
