Chris Evans Sends Touching Message to Boy Who Saved His Sister From a Dog Attack
Actor Chris Evans, famously known as ‘Captain America’ in The Avengers franchise sent a heartwarming message to a six-year-old boy who saved his sister from a vicious dog attack.
In the message, Evans lauded the boy, Bridger Walker for his heroic act, and promised to send him an authentic Captain American shield. Evans said, “I read your story and saw what you did. Pal, you’re a hero, what you did was so brave, so selfless — your sister is so lucky to have you as a big brother. Your parents must be so proud of you.”
Today, @RobertDowneyJr (Iron Man), called Bridger, a six-year-old who saved his sister from a dog attack.

News of Bridger’s heroic actions went viral last week when the sweet video was shared by Nicole Noel Walker, bridger’s aunt who revealed the story to the world, including The Avengers cast members. So far, actor Mark Ruffalo who plays The Hulk, Brie Larson, who portrays Captain Marvel, Tom Holland who plays Spider-man, and two cast members of The Flash have responded and praised Bridger for his bravery. Bridger’s actions touched the hearts of people around the world, especially when the youngster said, “If someone was going to die, I thought it should be me.”

My nephew is a hero who saved his little sister from an attacking dog. He, himself, took on the attack so that the dog wouldn’t get his sister. He later said, “If someone was going to die, I thought it should be me.” He got home from the hospital last night. I know it’s a long shot, but I’m reaching out to the Avengers and other heroes so that they can learn about this latest addition to their ranks. Please, check your DM’s for my sweet nephew’s story. @tomholland2013 @chrishemsworth @robertdowneyjr @markruffalo @prattprattpratt @twhiddleston @chadwickboseman @vindiesel @chrisevans @vancityreynolds @thehughjackman Edit: I never expected my sweet nephew’s story to reach so many. Please, follow my other post (I only have two so far 😅) for the latest info regarding my sweet nephew and his family.
The little sister is very lucky to have a big brother to protect her, and Bridger’s actions prove not all heroes wear capes.
