Young actor Rudhraksh Jaiswal, who made his debut in the Netflix action film Extraction, opposite Chris Hemsworth, has said that working with Hemsworth completely changed his life and that the Thor actor has stayed in touch with him even after the filming ended.

“Before I did Extraction, my life was very different. I was bullied at school, people would try to bring me down and every day I would go home crying,” he said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.

“He’s been guiding me through this journey. If I’m stuck or need advice, I always reach out to him. He’s my idol. He always brings out the best in me. He also helped me improve my acting techniques and taught me the art of dialogue, voice modulation, and taking pauses in between lines,” he added.

Directed by Sam Hargrave, Extraction became the most-watched Netflix original film in the first month of release and was watched by over 99 million accounts. Now, according to media reports, there is a sequel in the works.
