"Hey, everyone."

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

After launching his acting career in the West End production of Billy Elliot the Musical as its title character, he proceeded to take roles in films like The Impossible, Locke, and How I Live Now.

He also provided his voice for the UK dub of Arrietty.

In 2015, Marvel Studios and Sony announced that he won the coveted role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe following the deal between Sony and Marvel Studios to share the character's rights. He first showed up in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, and has spin-off into his own solo film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, in 2017. He reprised his role in 2018's Avengers: Infinity War. 2019 will be his biggest year yet as the character, between a return in Avengers: Endgame and the lead of Spider-Man: Far From Home, a standalone sequel to Homecoming. Holland is expected to appear in a third standalone film at an unspecified date.


Coming off his success as Spider-Man, Holland was then cast as a young Nathan Drake in the long-gestating film adaptation of the Uncharted video game series, currently without a release date but likely intended for 2020.

Not to be confused with the American horror-movie director of the same name. Nor Tom Hollander.
