Tom Holland is contemplating how has changed since becoming the youngest actor ever to pull on a Spider-Man suit. “It’s crazy,” he says, nonplussed. “Crazier than I thought it would be.”
Tired after a late night and a gruelling press tour, the 21-year-old is nevertheless upbeat, cheerful and enjoying every moment of the newfound mania that is surrounding his every move. He explains that Spider-Man’s alter-ego Peter Parker has become his role model because
“his life changes too but he stays true to himself. It’s very important to me that I stay the same as I was before this crazy thing happened to me.”
We are talking a few hours before the premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming, during which thousands of screaming fans shut down Hollywood Boulevard. Holland, from Kingston-Upon-Thames, was accompanied to the premiere by a family entourage which included his mother, two grandmothers, two great-grandparents and his cousin.
“My mum brought them all over, which is so lovely,” he says.
His best friend and 18-year-old younger brother Harry, who have accompanied him on his travels by private jet around the world, were also there. The only close family member absent was his father, the comedian Dominic Holland, who is currently appearing at the Edinburgh Festival.
