Chris Evans – Marvel’s Leading Man19 Jan 2020
Born in Boston and raised in Sudbury, Chris Evans left the Massachusetts suburbs in search of a stellar acting career. When he started booking roles, the world-class actor performed in many independent films. It wasn't until he landed a part in Not Another Teen Movie and, subsequently, the role of the human torch in the 2005 movie, Fantastic Four, that Evans began to gain standing as a movie star. Interestingly, it was his portrayal of another superhero, Captain America, that genuinely propelled Evans into global stardom. As Marvel was wrapping up the final chapters of the Avengers franchise, Chris Evans decided to delve into the world of theatre and made his Broadway debut in a show named Lobby hero.
