Have you ever asked yourselves the question “What would Captain America do”? No? Truth be told, we haven’t done it either. But many Americans have. Belated happy birthday, Captain America, also known as Chris Evans!
Christopher Robert Evans was born on June 13, 1981, in Boston, Massachusetts. After graduating from high school in his hometown, he moved to New York where he took theatre classes. 1997 was the year of his first appearance on television in the short film Biodiversity: Wild About Life! Seven years later, he was offered the leading role in the films The Perfect Score and Cellular.
His first superhero role was in 2005 in Fantastic Four – a film based on the Marvel Comics (little we all knew back then, the Marvel Cinematic Universe in his life was just beginning).
Chris co-starred alongside Keanu Reeves in Street Kings in 2008. He also appeared in two comic-book adaptations – The Losers in 2010 and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, also in 2010.
The premiere of Captain America: The First Avenger was in 2011. Iron Man, Hulk and Thor joined him a year later, in 2012, for The Avengers. The next solo chapters for the Captain were Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. The entire crew gathered again for Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015, Avengers: Infinity War in 2018 and Avengers: Endgame in 2019.
Apart from his superpowers, Evans is famous for his love for animals. While filming the title Giftedin a shelter, Chris adopted a dog. Just like that, he found it inbetween the scenes.
