Chris Evans on acting hiatus

Writer: Dzamira Dzafri


The glory of Chris Evans' absence on the big screen will be felt by many.

6 Mar - "Captain America" Chris Evans has stated that he plans to take a long break from acting after his contract with Marvel expires. There is a strong speculation that "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" might be the movie that finishes his deal with Marvel.

"I think when I'm done with this Marvel contract, I'll take a little break from acting," Evans revealed of his planned sabbatical. "With acting, you're one piece in a very big puzzle. It's like you helped buy a gift but you don't know what the gift is, so you come back and see the movie. Sometimes it's nice, sometimes it's tragic."

The 32-year-old actor also hopes to change directions and move more of his focus to directing films instead.

Evans' indie directional debut "1:30 Train" is currently in post-production.

"This process [directing], you're involved in every single decision," he said. "If I hadn't done it, I'd be really kicking myself. At the time, it was a daunting task for a number of reasons, but in hindsight it was the right move."

In the same interview with Glamour magazine, Evans also spills a little detail about Captain America in the sequel, "He's not Batman, he doesn't struggle with inner turmoil. The nature of this character is that he puts himself last and helps the common good. So he could easily slip into a world of boredom. The blessing and curse of Captain America is that he doesn't have that fancy ability. He doesn't live in another world, or turn green. He doesn't have bells and whistles, he doesn't shoot missiles. He punches and kicks."

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" comes to cinemas this 27 March.
