Tom Holland Invites Boy Who Saved His Sister From Dog Attack to Spiderman Filming


Tom Holland kept his promise to a boy who saved his sister from a dog attack last year.

In July 2020, Bridger Walker saved his sister from a dog attack after a German Shepherd mix lunged at the siblings. Walker, then 6 years old, underwent a nearly two-hour surgery that required more than 90 stitches, according to his parents.

The story of Walker’s bravery and went viral and celebrities reached out with love and supporting, including Tom Holland, who invited Bridger to visit the set of “Spider-man: No Way Home.”

“Remember when @tomholland2013 promised Bridger he could come to the filming of Spider-Man?” Robert Walker, Bridger’s dad, wrote in an Instagram post on Friday. “He delivered!”

He wrote that Holland came dressed in his full Spider-man mask and costume as to not ruin the magic of the movie for Bridger.

“They don’t just act the part of friendly neighborhood heroes — that’s what they truly are,” he wrote.

In a separate Instagram post, Walker shared a video of Bridger and Holland practicing a stunt together on set.
