Tom Holland Life

Thomas Stanley Holland (born 1 June 1996) is an English actor.

He first gained fame for his role in the 2012 disaster film The Impossible.

He rose to fame for his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero films Peter Parker / Spider-Man (2016), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019). Holland, a graduate of the BRIT School in London, appeared on stage in Billy Elliot the Musical's title role in London's West End in 2008, and his other films include In the Heart of the Sea (2015) and The Current War (2017).

Holland was named as a Rising Star Award by the BAFTA in 2017.

Early life

Thomas Stanley Holland was born in Kingston upon Thames, south west London, to photographer Nicola (née Frost) and Dominic Holland, a comedian and author. He has three younger brothers. His paternal grandmother was from Tipperary, Ireland. Holland lives in Kingston upon Thames, near the house of his parents and younger brothers. Since his parents are creative, he is often inspired by them; he considers his father a role model who has unofficially worked as his manager due to his work experience in the field.

In Wimbledon, an all-male Catholic preparatory academy, Holland was educated. When he was seven years old, he was diagnosed with dyslexia. His parents took him and his brothers (to avoid making them feel neglected) to a private school so he could get the needed attention. Although Holland loved the new school, it became apparent that his family's funds were starting to drain his family's budget. Holland attended Wimbledon College, a Jesuit comprehensive academy, followed by the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in Croydon.

Holland considered a number of career paths as he aged. He was a fan of Janet Jackson's songs as a child and would often dance to them. His mother, who was delighted with the result, signed him up for a dancing lesson, which was advertised in the private school that Holland was attending at the time. Holland attended carpentry school in Cardiff, Wales, for a short time in his youth. At one time, he considered becoming a primary school teacher because he loves being around children.

Public image and personal life

Holland's "cheeky British charm, vulnerability, and intelligence," according to Nadia Khomani of The Guardian, has made him the object of infatuation on the internet. Jonathan Dean of The Sunday Times described him as "poised and professional but also as flexible and personable" and that "despite boyish wenchiness," he reflected on his maturity. Sönke Möhring, the German actor who co-star from The Impossible, remarked on his work, saying, "he is blessed with a deep soul [...] down to earth, very polite, and a friendly child." Kevin Macdonald, who helmed Holland's How I Live Now, praised him as "articulate and enthusiastic," and credited Holland's triumph to his positive energy. When asked what was the key to his success, Holland said he believes in avoiding danger and working hard.

Holland appeared on "UK Stars of Tomorrow – 2012" on Screen International's "UK Stars of Tomorrow" and The Hollywood Reporter's "Next Generation 2015," a list of promising newcomers in film. He appeared on Forbes' "30 Under 30 Europe," a list of influential people under the age of 30 years, and Insider Inc.'s "45 young stars who will one day rule Hollywood" in 2019. He was named one of the top actors under the age of 30 by Tuko and Complex Networks in 2021 after appearing on Glamour's "Hot, Young & British Actors 2020." Ryan Mutuku's former listing referred to him as "a darling to the English media" due to his openness and willingness to offer interviews that are not related to film sales. "Holland has ascended to a level of stardom that no actors ever reach, and certainly not young," GQ's Oliver Franklin-Wallis wrote in 2021. After the success of the Spider-Man films, Variety editors Brent Lang and Rebecca Rubin predicted in December 2021 that Holland may be a top-paid actor in the future. They referred to the lack of young leading men in Hollywood, as well as Holland's potential to herald a new generation of talented actors.

According to Olivia Singh of Yahoo, Holland considers himself to be "an impossible people pleaser." He has been accused of a firefighter and an incident in which he vomited after a press conference, as a result. Holland, a self-admittedly indiscreet person, has a reputation for inadvertently spoiling key plot elements of his films in interviews and press conferences. In terms of spoilers, his MCU co-stars rated him as the "least trustworthy" cast member. He only read portions of Captain America: Civil War's script in order to avoid an incident. Joe Russo skipped Holland's script for Avengers: Endgame, and Holland knew only his lines. Holland has expressed his opinions about the film industry. He advocated for greater representation of racial identity and the LGBT group in film in a Sunday Times interview. Holland replied: "He doesn't know what it looks like because he's never made one." MCU films will always do well commercially, despite their reputation, according to Holland, although a bad independent film might not. During the COVID-19 pandemic, actor Tom Cruise praised for "resurrect[ing] Hollywood" during his film Uncharted (2022), neglecting the commercial consequences of his film Uncharted.

Holland is on Instagram, and he often impresses auditioners by using his number of followers. On the other hand, he describes himself as a private person and is reluctant to discuss his personal life in public. He is in a relationship with his Spider-Man co-star Zendaya as of November 2021. He believed that the media attention to their relationship invaded their privacy. In his bedroom, Holland discussed the possibility of sleep paralysis nightmares of paparazzi.


Tom Holland Career


Holland began dancing at Nifty Feet Dance School in Wimbledon, where he performed with his school group at the 2006 Richmond Dance Festival. He was discovered by choreographer Lynne Page, an associate of Peter Darling, choreographer of Billy Elliot the Musical. Page arranged an audition for Holland, where the musical's director Stephen Daldry thought he had a strong promise and was a natural actor." Holland performed the protagonist's best friend, Michael Caffrey, in his debut at the Victoria Palace Theatre in June 2008 after two years of training in ballet, tap dancing, and acrobatics. Holland learned gymnastics during his time in the musical. When his classmates learned of his dancing interests, they began bullying him.

Holland and co-star Tanner Pflueger were promoted to lead roles in the musical later in 2008. Holland died of tonsillitis on his first day playing Elliot but got positive feedback from the audience the next day. Following his success on stage, Holland wished to be popular in school and that his classmates would not be bullied him. Despite being in a corporate environment, he matured earlier than his peers and struggled to integrate. As a result, his General Certificate of Secondary Education grades suffered. Holland played a part in the British dub of the Japanese animated fantasy film Arrietty (2011) and sent an audition tape to J.A. after his work on Billy Elliot the Musical ended in 2010, he sang of Billy Elliot the Musical. Bayona appeared in The Impossible (2012). Bayona arranged a meeting, and Holland had Holland write a letter to his mother and recite it as an audition. Bayona played Holland in the film, and he was impressed with his emotional delivery.

Holland played a teenager trapped with his family and his family in the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami in The Impossible. Due to the change from live audience to camera, transitioning from stage to screen was initially difficult for Holland. Scenes in a 35,000-gallon water tank were shot by him and co-star Naomi Watts, who were physically and mentally demanding for them. Holland discovered that working with Watts made him realize that he wanted to pursue an acting career full-time. The Impossible premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, bringing $180.3 million to a net loss of $45 million. Holland has been lauded for his work. Holland is described as "a superb young actor" by A. O. Scott of The New York Times, who praises his character's transformation from a self-involved to a mature adolescent. He has received numerous awards, including the National Board of Review Award for Breakthrough Performance and the London Film Critics Circle Award for Young British Performer of the Year. Holland appeared in the drama film How I Live Now (2013), lent his voice to the drama film Locke (2013), and appeared in Billy Elliot the Musical Live (2014).

In four episodes of BBC Two's historical miniseries Wolf Hall (2015), Holland appeared as Gregory Cromwell, son of the protagonist Thomas Cromwell played by Mark Rylance. He directed a 3-minute short film about a young man and his grandfather building a birdhouse with his grandfather; Holland later expressed an interest in directing feature films in his 40s. In Ron Howard's historical adventure-drama In the Heart of the Sea, Thomas Nickerson co-starred as the teen sailor Thomas Nickerson. The film is based on the namesake 2000 non-fiction book about the sinking of the American whaling ship Essex in 1820. He and his co-stars, including Chris Hemsworth, lost significant weight in preparation, eating 500–1,000 calories a day. Holland appeared in the majority of his stunts in the film. Critics mixed opinions of the Heart of the Sea's $93 million budget against a $100 million budget. Holland "does a good job," USA Today's Brian Truitt wrote.

Holland signed a six-picture contract with Marvel Studios in June 2015 to play a teenage Peter Parker/Spiderman. Holland, a boy, was a fan of Spider-Man; he had 30 costumes and bed sheet covers of the character. Charlie Rowe and Asa Butterfield, among English actors, auditioned against 1,500 students around the world. Though producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal were enthralled by his appearances in The Impossible, Wolf Hall, and In the Heart of the Sea, the Russo brothers cited Holland's dancing and gymnastics experience as the reasons for casting him. When Stan Lee, Spider-Man's creator, imagined the character, he said it was "exact age and height" when he imagined it. He first appeared in Captain America: Civil War (2016) as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $1.1 billion worldwide against a budget of $250 million to become the nation's highest-grossing film of 2016. Peter Bradshaw praised Holland and co-star Paul Rudd (who portrayed Ant-Man) as "seductively high-spirited and amusing," while Chicago Sun-Times' Richard Roeper said as Spider-Man that he made a "good first impression."

In the psychological thriller Edge of Winter, Holland co-starred Joel Kinnaman and Percy Hynes White in 2016. It was the first film he did without his parents' knowledge. Holland and White were "more emotionally wrenching than the tense thriller genre conventions to which the film eventually succumbs," Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter found them "excellent." Holland received the Rising Star Award at the 70th British Academy Film Awards in 2017. Holland's first work of the year was published to rave reviews in James Gray's drama The Lost City of Z. He cracked his nose on his last day of filming after a failed backflip attempt. Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), an explorer who makes many attempts to locate a lost ancient city in the Amazon rainforest, was born in Holland. Rex Reed of The Times of India praised Holland for making the film emotional toward the end, while Rex Reed of The New York Observer found him "remarkably robust and self-assured." In Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's The Current War, which attracted critical feedback and was a box-office failure, Holland played Samuel Insull. The Independent's Clarisse Loughre found Holland's contribution insubstantial.

In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Holland's second film in 2017 was his solo role as the title character. As a result, Holland was accepted into Guinness Book of World Records as the youngest actor to play a title in the MCU. Though Holland drew some inspiration from previous Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, he wanted to bring some new life to the character. Parker was the focus of his freshman year as he tried to strike a balance between a high-school student and a superhero. Holland attended The Bronx High School of Science in the Bronx for a few days, but other students did not believe he was called Spider-Man. Holland found that this situation related to the film's plot, in which other characters are unaware that Parker is Spider-Man. The work of both Homecoming and Holland has been lauded. "A born actor's performance," Peter Travers called it "a celebrity performance given by a born actor." The film, which was made on a $175 million budget, earned over $800 million worldwide. In 2017, Holland's last film appearance was in the Irish film Pilgrimage, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Holland appeared in drag on Zendaya's Lip Sync Battle, during which he performed a dance number to Rihanna's "Umbrella" in drag. His parents founded The Brothers Trust, a non-profit group that raises funds for humanitarian causes.

In Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and its sequel-up Avengers: Endgame (2019), which were shot back-to-back, Holland reprised his role as Spider-Man. Both photographs earned more than $2 billion, and Endgame became the highest-grossing film of all time for a short period. Holland later released Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019), which received critical praise and became the first Spider-Man film to earn $1 billion, finishing fourth in the fourth highest grosser of 2019. Holland "a note-perfect Spider-Man" was discovered by Ben Travis of Empire magazine, who was once more amusing and youthful than Maguire and Garfield, who had previously portrayed the character. "Holland never loses the ebullient spark that makes him one of the MCU's most endearing figures," Travis wrote. Holland has been named for the third time as Best Performance by a Younger Actor for Far From Home, having previously been recognized for Civil War and Homecoming. In Disguise (2019), the live-action film Dolittle (2020), and the Pixar animated film Onward (2020), he appeared in the Blue Sky Studios animation Spies in Disguise (2019). Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Pratt, Jr., respectively, co-stars at MCU, respectively. All three films were underperforming at the box-office, owing to their budgets.

Sebastian Stan, an Avengers co-star, appeared in The Devil All the Time (2020), a Netflix psychological thriller set after World War II. Holland said he was initially concerned that he didn't have the strength to portray a young orphanage man on a murder spree, and he was afraid and nervous on his first day on set. He eventually enjoyed playing the part, although it did put a temporary strain on his mental stability, which required Campos to be encouraged. Campos praised Holland's efforts to learn Southern American English for the role, describing his acting process as "methodical," "thoughtful and sensitive," and calling him a kind person. Though the film's flop script, Holland gave a convincing appearance and showed his versatility as an actor, according to IndieWire and Roger Ebert's website. According to a Variety survey, the film was the 22nd most watched straight-to-streaming title of the year by November 2020.

In 2021, Holland appeared in three films that were not released in 2021. Cherry, American author Nico Walker's namesake book, was based on his namesake novel and reunited him with the Russo brothers, his first film, is based on the namesake novel. Since enlisting in the army, he played a college student with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and robs banks to fund his heroin use. Holland shaved his head and interviewed military veterans who are recovering from drug use and PTSD in preparation for the role. He also gained 30 pounds (14 kg) of weight and recovered it after filming. In February, the film was in theaters and on Apple TV+ in March. The film, according to a consensus among critics, allowed Holland to expand his horizons as an actor, but it had a formulaic story. This was repeated by Owen Gleiberman of Variety, who later said that Holland demonstrated his acting skills and displayed a variety of indulgent looks and moods. In Chaos Walking, Patrick Ness' best-selling science fiction collection of the same name, Holland appeared alongside Daisy Ridley as a young man on a planet called New World. In early 2019, the film was postponed due to multiple reshoots, raising the cost of the film to $100 million. Chaos Walking was unable to recover its funds and received poor feedback. Holland and Ridley's chemistry were lacking, according to David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter, and Entertainment Weekly's Christian Holub noted his inability to step away from Spider-Man roles.

Holland's Percy Pig was the subject of a series of advertisements for Marks & Spencer's Christmas food specials in November 2021. Holland reprised his role as Peter Parker in the sequel Spider-Man: No Way Home earlier this month. After being in mature roles in films such as Cherry, Holland found it strange to return to playing Parker, mainly due to his voice pitch, and returning to a "nave, charming teen." He referred to No Way Home as the "most ambitious standalone superhero film ever made." Despite being released during the COVID-19 pandemic, No Way Home debuted as the highest-grossing film of all time in 2021 and the sixth highest-grossing film of all time. It was also the first film since 2019's Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker also earned more than $200,000 at the box-office. On the online database IMDb and the review service provider Rotten Tomatoes, No Way Home became the highest-rated Spider-Man film. The film, according to Wendy Ide of The Guardian, "delivers an overflowing, funnel-web cornucopia of Spider-fans," and she attributed Parker's continuing appeal to "his endearing, puppyish enthusiasm." Holland "own[s] every inch of the job," the Times' Kevin Maher said, and "casts his web and captures your heart."

In 2021, Holland said he was uncertain about returning to his role as Spider-Man after No Way Home, especially after he turned 30 in 2026. Miles Morales wished to see a live-action Spider-Man film, while Amy Pascal expressed disappointment in the role of Holland. In the film version of Naughty Dog's Uncharted video game series, Holland invested in Dogpound gyms and a young Nathan Drake, a charismatic fortune hunter. Holland worked shifts at the Chiltern Firehouse, a pub in London, in preparation for scenes where his character is bartending. Even though filming was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Holland continued to eat and train for the role. Holland's uncharted polarized analysts, but Variety's Rebecca Rubin said that their box-office success was likely due to the country's celebrity. Brian Tallerico of Roger Ebert's website characterized him as miscast, saying that "Holland has the flexibility, but he needs the strength and worldweariness" for the role.

Holland is expected to appear in the Apple TV+ anthology film The Crowded Room, where he will also be a producer. Since 2017, he has been attached to the role of Pino Lella in Beneath a Scarlet Sky, a spy drama series set during World War II based on Mark Sullivan's 2017 fact-based book of the same name. In December 2021, Holland revealed that he was supposed to appear actor and dancer Fred Astaire in a Sony biopic currently in production.
