Chris Evans, 35, leaves his Cap­tain Amer­ica su­per­pow­ers be­hind for his new drama, Gifted. He plays Frank Adler, a sin­gle man fight­ing for cus­tody of his child-prodigy niece Mary (Mckenna Grace) to ful­fill a prom­ise he made to her mother. Here are five facts about the Bos­ton-born ac­tor.

1. Evans learned to tap dance from his mother, a for­mer pro­fes­sional dancer, and still taps to re­lieve anx­i­ety.

2. He has a soft spot for kids, reg­u­larly vis­it­ing Bos­ton chil­dren’s hos­pi­tals.

3. A Dis­ney fa­natic, he knows the words to all the songs from The Lit­tle Mer­maid.

4. He’s ap­peared as Cap­tain Amer­ica in seven films, played the Hu­man Torch in two Fan­tas­tic Four flicks and was cast as a vil­lain in Scott Pil­grim vs. the World.

5. His Cap­tain Amer­ica cos­tume’s cowl was so tight that it gave him mi­graines.
