The other day we heard about a heroic boy who saved his little sister from a dog attack. Six year old Bridger Walker jumped in front of his 4 year old sister to protect her from the charging dog, and he was mauled so badly he required 90 stitches on his face. Now some movie heroes are reaching out to this real-life hero and sending video messages.
Actor Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, filmed a video message for Bridger and praised him for his bravery. He also said he'll be sending to tell him how impressed he is with his actions. Evans said, “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." He also said he'll be sending the boy an authentic “Captain America” shield!
And Tom Holland aka Spiderman, gave Bridger a call! Holland told the boy, “you are so brave, mate, and we are all so proud of you and your little sister is so lucky to have you.”
Several other stars took time out to praise this little hero including Mark Ruffalo, who plays The Hulk, Brie Larson, star of Captain Marvel, Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer and more.
