On Thursday night, October 10, Liam Hemsworth threw fans for a loop when he was seen in New York holding hands with Australian actor Maddison Brown, best known for starring on The CW’s Dynasty reboot. The PDA comes shortly after Us Weekly published a report saying Hemsworth was “open to meeting people” following his highly-publicized split from Miley Cyrus over the summer. Cyrus’ love life post-Hemsworth, meanwhile, has been the topic of intense tabloid fodder: She was briefly linked to Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter and is now reportedly dating Cody Simpson.
Maddison Brown is the first person Hemsworth has been spotted out with, though. It’s unclear what the status of their relationship is, but here’s everything you need to know about her:
She’s relatively new to the acting game. The 22-year-old made her Dynasty debut in season two as Kirby Anders, the daughter of the principal family’s chief steward who was framed for arson as a kid. Prior to this she had a role on the Australian TV series The Kettering Incident, but those are her only two substantial acting credits. According to People, Brown is also a model (she’s worked with Calvin Klein and Jason Wu, among other high-fashion brands) and has over 450,000 followers on Instagram.
Cosmopolitan reports that Brown’s comments are already blowing up with thirsty Hemsworth messages. “Your followers about to raise up lol Liam’s new girl,” one reads, while another says, “Are you Liam’s mystery girl😍😍😍😍.”
She’s had a crush on Hemsworth for a while. Well, kinda. Fans unearthed an interview Brown did for the Zach Sang Show where she played a little “F–k, Marry, Kill.” Hilariously, she said she would sleep with both Chris and Liam Hemsworth at the same time. Check it out for yourself, below. Start around the 8:03 mark.
We’ll update this post with more information about Brown as it comes in.
