Jane Foster is the love interest of Thor from the Thor comics. She has developed feelings for Thor. She is a nurse for Dr. Donald Blake.

In the movie, she was played by Natalie Portman and instead of being a nurse is an astrophysicist.

Her personalityEdit

Jane Foster is a strong and determined woman, with an obstinate will and an independent spirit. She firmly believes that scientists have been invested with the mission of searching the truth and loyally follows this idealism.

She possesses a deep knowledge for her study field, astrophysics, and of her peers. She came the closest to discovering the existence of Asgard by studying the wormhole-like traces left by the use of the Bifrost Bridge.


  • In the comics, Jane Foster starts as a nurse, not an astrophysicist, but the Studios wanted to update the character. She is enamored with Donald Blake, having broken up with Thor decades ago in the comics.
  • She is played by Natalie Portman who played Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequels.
  • Chris Hemsworth's wife Elsa Pataky was Portman's stand-in for the post-credits scene in Thor: The Dark World.
