How Did Chris Evans Get Famous?

Christopher Robert Evans enjoyed musical theater as a child and attended acting camp. Following a few minor roles, Evans moved to LA in 2000, debuting in The Newcomers as the character of Judd.

He also had a lead role in Opposite Sex, a drama characterizing the life of Jed Perry, a teen who finds out that a prestigious university is only nominally co-ed, and the attending girls are resistant to their presence. Evans played one of only two other boys to attend the school, Cary Baston.

The trend would continue, as Evans saw some success in teen movies—even starring in Not Another Teen Movie, whose purpose was to poke fun at tropes in teen movies. Soon after, he would star in The Perfect Score, a film critics found unappealing and bland, some for the purported lack of chemistry between Evans and the cast.

Evans himself would agree that some of his earlier movies were “really terrible.” From 2005-2010, he would continue to star in movies with mixed appeal. London, a romantic drama, was a rough patch in his career, with many critics offering negative feedback. No one genre truly defines Evans’ career—he was and still is a jack-of-all-trades, although it’s fair to say that his more recent films have been greeted with better reception than his earlier roles.

2010 would mark the turning point, as Evans signed a multi-film deal with Marvel Studios to play Steve Rogers. Evans initially declined, but upon speaking with Robert Downey Jr., was persuaded to take the role. He was described as “confident, but subtle” Captain America: The First Avenger. In the subsequent Avengers movie, Evans played alongside an all-star cast to bring to life one of the highest-grossing films of all times.

His stint as Captain America would end in 2019 with Avengers: Endgame, in which his character would reach the end of his natural arc.

Subsequent movies have been met with critical approval. His Broadway debut in the play Lobby Hero, for example, was widely praised, and he received similar accolades for his performance in Knives Out for his role as Hugh Ransom Drysdale.
