Tom Holland was born in Kingston upon Thames, England, and made his feature film debut in The Impossible (2012) in which his performance won him several awards including London Film Critics Circle Award for Young British Performer of the Year. His “life was flipped upside down” he later tweeted after he was cast as Peter Parker / Spider-Man in a six picture deal with Marvel Studios.
His first appearence as Spider-Man came in Captain America: Civil War (2016) gaining him critical praise for his performance. The film grossed over 1.1 billion dollars.
He later reprised that role in 2017 Spider-Man: Homecoming, which earned the actor a Guinness Book of World Records as the youngest actor (20 years 123 days) to play a title role in the Marvel Comic Universe. A sequel soon followed in 2018’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, and he also plays Spider-Man in the movies Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019).
In 2020 Holland began working on a sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home.
