Who Is Tom Holland?

Born in England in 1996, Tom Holland joined the London production of Billy Elliot the Musical in 2008. He soon found success in film, drawing strong reviews for his performance in The Impossible (2012). Tapped to take over the iconic role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man for the big screen, Holland made his debut as the superhero in Captain America: Civil War (2016), before earning the chance to carry his own feature with Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017).

Early Years and ‘Billy Elliot’

Holland began attending hip-hop dance classes at the Nifty Feet Dance Studio, whose owner, Lynne Page, helped choreograph the hit movie Billy Elliot (2000). After Holland’s class performed at the 2006 Richmond Dance Festival, Page was convinced to send her pupil to audition for Billy Elliot the Musical.

With no formal training in ballet or drama, Holland failed to impress most of the talent evaluators at the audition. However, he did impress Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry, who loved Holland’s natural performing ability and stage presence.

Following two years of ballet lessons, Holland debuted with the West End production in June 2008 as Billy’s best friend, Michael. He soon slid into the starring role, and wowed audiences with his acrobatic ability until his final performance in May 2010.

Breakout Role in ‘The Impossible’

Not long after hanging up his dance shoes for Billy Elliot, Holland was tapped to voice the character of Sho for the British version of the animated The Secret World of Arrietty (2010). However, it was his performance in The Impossible (2012) that firmly established him as one of the industry’s promising young talents. Based on a true account of the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004, Holland shined as an adolescent who tends to his injured mother (Naomi Watts) as he searches for his missing father (Ewan McGregor), garnering an array of award nominations.

How Old Was Holland When He Played in ‘The Impossible’?

Holland was 13 when he tried out for the role as the eldest son.

Spider-Man

Following a turn in the drama How I Live Now (2013), Holland landed a supporting part in the 2015 BBC historical miniseries Wolf Hall. Shortly afterward, his path to global stardom was launched with the announcement that he would take over the role of Peter Parker for the latest reboot of Spider-Man. Unlike his predecessors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, who were in their mid-to-late 20s when tapped for Spidey, the 19-year-old Holland was much closer in age to Peter Parker’s troubled high school student turned superhero.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ and ‘Far From Home’

In the spring of 2016, Holland made his debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. Despite limited screen time, he drew strong reviews for his version of the iconic web slinger, paving the way for his anticipated — and well received — performance in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Holland then reprised his superhero role in the ensemble blockbusters Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019), before adding the next chapter to his character’s story with Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019).

Meanwhile, Holland had other acting obligations to fulfill. The epic In the Heart of the Sea (2015) was a box-office flop, but it provided another showcase for the burgeoning star, as well as the chance to test his mettle amid difficult shooting conditions. He then featured prominently in 2016’s Edge of Winter and The Lost City of Z, before starring in the medieval action drama Pilgrimage (2017).

I think it’s great to have that support and love around you, because you need that. This isn’t an easy job, so it’s good to have that to free you up from it every now and then.

Zendaya and Tom Holland have tried to keep their relationship private since their first appearance together in Spider-Man: Homecoming. But secrets are bound to come out at some point when it comes to Hollywood romances. There were a number of rumors flying around that the love Zendaya and Holland presented on-screen was not exactly acting. When you’re spotted having a makeout sesh in a car, sending love to each other online, and attending your co-star’s movie premiere, you know that there must be something more than just friendship going on. It wasn’t until they put their arms around each other during the 2021 Ballon D’Or awards ceremony that the internet discovered the rumors were true and the Spider-Man duo was official.
