Hello In the actor profile luke hemsworth, it’s written that he is the main actor for the Thor role!! That info is incorrect as you know that Chris it the main actor for Thor not luke. So i hope you revise that actor profile He is starring in Westworld now season 3

He does have a small role in Thor: Ragnarok, but it's true that it may look wrong when IMDb highlights it as what he is "known for".

Hi Gasser. To add to Peters answer with a little more of an explanation.

"Known for" does not imply starred in.

"Known for" are chosen by default by IMDb and will usually list the most popular title that an actor has worked on.

The order of the "Known for" can be chosen by the actor, if He/She/They are IMDb Pro Members.

Hope that answers all your questions.

Lets clarify.
It is the most popular title he is known to be in.
Not his many appearances elsewhere.

Gasser Mohey, I am pretty sure that Luke Hemsworth's IMDb page is managed directly by him and/or his agent through IMDb Pro. If that is so, of which I'm practically certain (as his IMDb Pro account seems to be very much in use) there's a very strong possibility that actor himself or his agent chose that as what he's primary known for, as it is an option for Pro account users. 

As for "Actor Thor" this role was specifically written that way in the film's credits to differentiate the character (an actor who portrays Thor in Loki's play) from actual Thor, who is portrayed by his brother. 

I hope that clarifies the situation.
