Biography

Actor Chris Evans began his acting career in typical fashion, but it was his rapid rise to stardom which was unusual. Bitten by the acting bug in the first grade, Evans started out appearing in school plays and theater camp; from there it was a quick jump to local community theater, and later, an internship for a casting office. Once Evans made friends with a few agents on the job, it was a straight shot to television and blockbuster features. One of the more talented of the fair-haired, pretty-boy actors to emerge in the early years of the new millennium, Evans scored with roles in a succession of high-profile releases. His most famous part, however, came in 2005 when he was tapped to play the role of the Human Torch in director Tim Story's adaptation of the Marvel Comics classic "The Fantastic Four" and its subsequent sequel, "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" (2007). By the time he starred in "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" (2010) and as "Captain America: The First Avenger" (2011), Evans was a star assured of accomplishing even greater things.
