Tom Holland Meets Young Boy Who Saved His Sister From Vicious Dog Attack

Tom Holland Meets Young Boy Who Saved His Sister From Vicious Dog Attack

Tom Holland has made good on his promise to meet a young Marvel fan who is a real-life hero.

Bridger Walker, 6, was mauled after he put himself between a dog and his sister last year. When asked why he stepped in, he said 'if someone had to die, I thought it should be me'.

He suffered some brutal injuries in the heroic act and needed 90 stitches on his face alone.

However, his brave efforts saw him given shout outs from some of the biggest names in the Avengers franchise and now he's been lucky enough to meet Tom Holland.


The Spider-Man: No Way Home star took time out of his busy schedule to meet Bridger and pose for some photos while in his superhero suit.

The now-seven-year-old even got to be attached to Holland on the set of the third film and web-sling through the air.

Bridger's dad, Robert, thanked everyone involved for helping his son meet one of his heroes.


"When we first arrived on set, I was a little apprehensive that once the 'curtain was pulled back' that the magic of the movies would be lost for the kids," he wrote on Instagram.

"The opposite was true! Tom, Zendaya, Harry, @lifeisaloha, @tonyrevolori, and the entire cast/crew made our kids feel like stars.

"They don't just act the part of friendly neighborhood heroes - that's what they truly are.

"The look on the kids' faces was priceless when we rounded the blue-screen to see Tom, in full costume, high above the set on a light post.


"It was emotional to see him wave at the kids like he was the one that was supposed to be excited - not the other way around."

Robert said Tom and Zendaya showed incredible 'grace' and 'kindness' to his kids and the MJ actor even complimented his daughter's nails.

"I don't know if [Zendaya] will ever know how much that simple act means to me - to see my sweet daughter light up with self-confidence and joy," he wrote.


The proud dad said Tom's younger brother Harry was their guide on the No Way Home set for the day.

Robert said Tom and Harry are some of the most 'humble and gracious young men in all of Hollywood'.

He added that Bridger had an incredible time getting to hang with everyone and had nothing but praise for everyone involved in making the day so special.

"People who were willing to stop a very busy day of shooting to make my little boy smile, and give him a chance to 'web-swing' with his hero," he said.


"Thank you again to everyone who played some role in Bridger's special day 'hanging' with Spider-Man."
