Tom Holland Interview – Captain America: Civil War – “This was a role I’ve been dreaming of since I was little”


Life’s about to change a whole lot for young Tom Holland. The friendly, eloquent 19 year-old has landed one of the biggest roles on the big screen in Sony’s upcoming Spiderman revamp and anonymity is soon going to become a thing of the past.

But Holland doesn’t to seem to be bothered by the idea. Though he hopes to avoid a level of fame enjoyed by a certain pop prince superstar.


Q: So I read that you backwards somersaulted into and then out of your audition tape for Spiderman – did you really do that?

HOLLAND: Yes! Well technically, on the first tape I did, you do an ident, say ,’hey, I’m Tom Holland, I’m 19 year-old, 5 foot du du duh duh duh,’ and I back flipped into shot and back flipped out of shot because I wanted them to know that I could do that. It was just smart. Why not show them what I can do?

This was a role I’ve been dreaming of since I was little and I wanted to do everything I could to get it, so I guess it helped me out.
