Christopher Robert Evans is an American actor, film producer, and director. Evans began his acting career in typical fashion: (singing, dancing, acting, etc., in front of people) in school productions and community theatre.
Chris Evans Birth Place
He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of Lisa (Capuano), who worked at the Concord Youth Theatre, and G. Robert Evans III, a dentist. His uncle is former U.S. Representative Mike Capuano. Chris’s father is of half-German and half-Welsh/English/Scottish family history, while Chris’s mother is of half-Italian and half-Irish family origins. He has an older sister, Carly Evans, and two younger brothers and sisters, a brother named Scott Evans, who is also an actor, and a sister named Shana Evans.
The family moved to suburban Sudbury when he was 11 years old. Bitten by the acting bug in the first grade because his older sister, Carly, started (singing, dancing, acting, etc., in front of people), Evans did the same thing and began appearing in school plays.
While at Lincoln-Sudbury (related to a large area) High School, his drama teacher referred to his performance as “Leontes” in “The Winter’s Tale” as excellent of his skill. After more plays and (related to a large area) theatre, he moved to New York and attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute.
On the (opinions about what could or should be done about a situation) of friends, he landed an internship at a casting office and became friends with a couple of the agents he regularly communicated with – one of whom later took him on as a client.
Chris Evans Films
The screen – not the stage – then became his focus; Evans soon began trying out (for a performing part) for feature films and television series. Evans made one of his first appearances on The (running from the law) (2000) (CBS, 2000-2001), a remake of the 1960s series and feature film starring Harrison Ford. In the episode “Guilt”, Evans played the son of a small-town sheriff who tries to exact revenge after Dr Richard Kimble – secretly as a liquor store owner – refuses to sell him and his friend’s alcohol.
After small roles in Cherry Falls (2000) and The Newcomers (2000) – two unknown low-budget features – Evans appeared in Boston Public (2000) (Fox, 2000-2004) as a murder suspect. He then appeared in his first major feature, Not Another Teen Movie (2001), a funny imitation of teen comedies (in which/during which/in what way/in what) he played a jock who makes a bet that he can turn an unpopular and sloppy girl (Chyler Leigh) into prom queen.
After filming a couple of television pilots he was confident would be successful – Just Married (2003) and Eastwick (2002) – he appeared in another tired and uninterested teen comedy, The Perfect Score (2004), playing an average, ho-hum student who takes part in a plot to steal the SAT. Mischief naturally happens next. Then, Evans broke through to the Big Time, grabbing the lead in the (capturing someone by the use of force) thriller, Cellular (2004), a suspenseful B movie with a low-quality/cheese-like cheap and silly thing – a random wrong number on his cell phone forces him into a high-stakes race to save an unknown woman’s life. (even though there is the existence of) a simple performance from Evans and Kim Basinger as the woman in need of help, Cellular (2004) did not break any box office records or please a vast majority of people (who say bad things or give opinions).
Evans then prepared himself for super stardom when he signed on to play Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four (2005), 20th Century Fox’s long-awaited helpful change of the Marvel comic. Although the film was wildly uneven and disappointing, Evans nearly stole the show with his (full of energy), free performance. In that year itself, Chris was (saw/heard/became aware of) by people (who say bad things or give opinions) and made it into magazine and Internet countdowns, scoring himself a third position in the hot body countdown from Gay.com and #18 on E! Television’s 2006 101 Sexiest Famous person/famousness Bodies.
2007 also proved to be one successful year for Chris, as he had two movies released around the world that same year, starting with the second section of the Marvel franchise Fantastic Four. Chris received positive reviews for his performance. The Nanny Diaries (2007), where Evans played Harvard Hottie, showed his sensitivity. The year 2008 saw Chris Evans’ part in the movie Street Kings (2008), playing the character Detective Paul Diskant. The film is about police officers trying to cover up their wrongdoings and audiences got to see a serious side of Chris. In the same year, Chris also worked on the movie The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond (2008).
