MANILA, Philippines - Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale Hawthorne in "The Hunger Games," is coming to Manila. This is according to Karen Jardenil, Ad and Promo officer at Suyen Corporation, who posted the news on her Facebook page. Suyen owns the fashion retail brand Bench, for which Liam is an endorser.

As of March 11, it is confirmed that Liam will be in Manila on March 15.

Liam is the younger brother of Chris Hemsworth, popular for playing Thor in the Marvel movie franchise. He is also the fiance of actress-singer Miley Cyrus.

News that Liam was officially a Bench endorser broke in June 2012. His billboards were mounted soon after, but unlike other Bench (and Human) Hollywood endorsers, he has not yet visited Manila.

The Aussie actor is currently shooting "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" with Oscar Best Actress Jennifer Lawrence in Hawaii.
