On stage you need to emphasize every emotion. But on screen you need to tone everything down and make it believable.
Adrenaline has always been my thing.
When I'm acting, it's like I am the character - no one can talk to me. But I'm not so method I'd sell my house and live on the street to play a tramp.
My teenage life was a little strange.
The harder you try, the better the impression you set on the people around you.
If I can bring happiness to people all around the world, then I will try my best to do so.
I don't mind sitting at home playing the guitar for a year as long as I'm making good films.
I'm not a very good swimmer, and every time I'm in the water, I'm constantly reminded of that because I feel like I'm going to drown!
Every kid goes through puberty, wondering what to do about girls and struggling with homework, and every adult has been through that.
The most important thing, in anything you do, is always trying your hardest, because even if you try your hardest and it's not as good as you'd hoped, you still have that sense of not letting yourself down.
Colombia is so different to what I know, and every aspect of the country is different to England, and I loved it. I loved the culture and the food, and the coffee was amazing. The place that we were was stunning, and it really was quite an amazing experience to film out there.
I completely and utterly rely on my mum. Without my mum, I would not be anywhere at all. I'd literally just be a couch potato.
I feel like if you put something out into the universe, then you increase your chances of it happening.
I personally think if something's not a challenge, there's no point doing it, because you're not gonna learn much.
I'm literally tone-deaf with singing. It's unreal.
It's quite difficult to take a superhero movie seriously because everything is heightened. A kid being bitten by a radioactive spider and getting superpowers is kind of ridiculous.
'Fan' is an understatement. I had the Spider-Man costume, I had bed sheets, toys, you name it. I've always had an argument with my best friend that Spider-Man was way better than Batman. I was a massive fan growing up.
Peter Parker can't dance. He can flip and climb up walls and do backflips, but he definitely can't dance.
I'm studying theater and media. I don't really know why I took media, because I'm so useless with technology, though it's fun. But, I do love theater and am having a great time learning about all the practitioners and getting to perform with my friends.
The ocean, to me, is one of the most terrifying things on the planet.
I have a photographic memory.
I remember watching 'Avengers 1' for the first time and thinking, 'God, one day I want to be in one of those movies.' I just want to be in the movie.
There's too much we don't know about the ocean to make me feel comfortable around it.
My biggest flaw is probably my attention span or lack thereof. And while it might seem contradictory, my biggest strength is my work ethic.
I was in my bed scrolling through Instagram. It had been about a month since my audition. And Marvel just posted a photo saying go to our website and find out who the next Spider-Man is. I went on the Marvel website on my computer, and there it was: The new Spider-Man is Tom Holland. I went ballistic - like, absolutely nuts.
I think, from every actor I've ever spoken to, they say the biggest thing they regret from life is not finishing school.
I don't like spiders at all, but I love heights.
Teleportation would be the best because I live on airplanes. It would be super handy to be able to teleport around.
I go to The Brit School, which is where Adele, Amy Winehouse, and Jessie J went.
Peter Parker's storyline hits every key point of growing up.
I have been given such a wonderful opportunity, and I want to share that with people. If I can share that with kids in hospital, then that seems like the right thing to do.
I never thought I would be Spider-Man in an 'Avengers' movie, but it's such a surreal experience, dude. It's so crazy.
I was truly obsessed with Obi-Wan Kenobi.
I don't like spiders, man, just because they are sneaky - they just really scare me. They are hairy - ugh.
There was times when I was bullied about dancing and stuff. But you couldn't hit me hard enough to stop me from doing it.
Peter Parker is probably the most relatable superhero - maybe ever - because he goes through something that basically everyone has to go through. Whether it's puberty or talking to girls or doing homework, he does it in such a human way. That's why he's such a beloved character: because so many people can relate to him.
When I'm on set, I don't really think about what an audience is going to think about a scene. I'm just thinking about how I can make it best. And how I can enjoy myself most.
Me and my mates go free running all the time. It's not my mum's favourite sport. I've probably jumped four metres on to grass and two metres between buildings. It's nothing like you see on the Internet, with guys jumping off skyscrapers, but it's fun.
I always wanted to be a stuntman. If acting went well and I was able to take a year out, I might train and get on the stunt register, which gives you qualifications so you can do more of your own stunts.
It's so fantastic for young kids to see a superhero going through the things they go through.
Fame is a beast that you can't control or be prepared for.
It's important not to make Spider-Man masculine because he's a kid. As soon as you make him masculine, it's harder to relate to him if you are younger and are in high school. I definitely was not masculine in high school.
I'm a London boy, born and bred, and I'll be there for as long as I can.
Like, 100 percent, I hate spiders. I thought I really liked them, and I learned that was just false. I really can't be around spiders. It scares me so much.
On 'The Impossible,' I was taught how to act. Naomi Watts was there every day constantly teaching me. That was where I discovered I wanted to be an actor.
Peter Parker is probably the most relatable superhero, maybe ever, because he goes through something that basically everyone has to go through. Whether it's puberty or talking to girls or doing homework, he does it in such a human way.
When I was in 'Billy,' I always knew that I wanted to do something in performing. I always knew that I wanted to have a future in the performing arts. I had no idea that it was going to be acting in movies.
'Spider-Man' was the best time of my life. I was there with my best friend. We shot in Atlanta. We shot every day and just had an absolute blast. 'Avengers' was crazy because you're on set every day with actors I never dreamed I would work with. I'm as much a fan as anyone else.
I am playing a superhero for kids, and I don't want them to think I'm some dirty fool.
I met two of my movie heroes. I met Tom Hanks, and I met Steven Spielberg. Oh and Quentin Tarantino.
I went to an all-boys school, where I played rugby, so ballet wasn't the coolest thing to do.
Zendaya is the one. At serving looks, she is the one to go to for tips.
One of the reasons why Spider-Man is my favorite superhero is because we both undergo big changes in our lives.
I've made 'The Pilgrimage' - where I actually had to speak Gaelic - and I was shooting in Belfast as well.
I was an ordinary student at school and, at the same time, an actor. But I was not the popular kid, which helped me to play Peter Parker better.
It's definitely a good way to stay in touch with your fans. The main reason I really use Instagram is because I want to hear their thoughts and what would they like to happen and see if I can make that happen. Which is a really nice way of being in touch with them all around the world.
I actually have videos on my phone of me interviewing people and asking them what they thought of the new Spider-Man in 'Civil War.' They were like, 'Oh he's great. I love him,' and then some people were like, 'Nah, I don't love him. he's not great' - and I was standing right in front of them!
Marvel actually sent me to a school in the Bronx where I had a fake name, and I put on an accent, and I went for, like, three days. I basically had to go to this science school and blend in with all the kids, and some of the teachers didn't even know.
I'm never quite cool, if you know what I mean. I'm basically the worst, best superhero.
Bullies now aren't just jocks. They're rich kids in the nice cars with the fancy clothes.
Being on a film set, you are always around such fantastic people. And I feel like I've been lucky. I feel like I've worked with the best of the best.
My mom thought I could dance because I used to dance to this Janet Jackson song she'd play when I was a baby. Then she would take me to a Saturday dance school. I used to go every week and got spotted by a scout, who suggested I audition for the role of Billy in 'Billy Elliot the Musical.'
My big thing was when you see a superhero movie where their powers ain't consistent - like, they lift a truck but then struggle to fight just a regular human being - it makes it harder to believe.
When I was young, my mom realized I could dance and hold a beat, and I really danced just for fun. It was good exercise.
I think 'Spider-Man 2' is one of the greatest superhero movies ever made.
I was joking with my agent that I'm going to get typecast for a water-disaster actor.
My goal was to try and kind of be our generation's Marty McFly. That was what my all-time goal was.
Performing on stage is such a buzz. I've done stupid things such as jump off a building, but I'd never experienced adrenalin like I did on stage.
There are so many things we have not seen in 'Spider-Man' yet... I want to use bad guys never seen in movies. The first films were so traditional and so scrupulously followed the character's classic plot... So there's a lot of stuff left in stock. 'The Clone Saga,' for example.
I really am having the time of my life. But as far as my future goes, I want to stretch myself as an actor in a way that Jake Gyllenhaal, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Meryl Streep do.
The 20-year goal is to be a film director. The 15-year goal is to win an Oscar. The five-year goal is to just keep enjoying myself.
I love the process of making a movie so much as an actor that I can only imagine I would love the process of being the director.
When Ron Howard rings you up and says, 'I'd like you to do my film,' you do it.
I like to consider myself a tech fan. That doesn't mean I'm a tech whiz, by any means.
Best thing about shooting in Atlanta at night is that it's not as hot as it is during the day.
I often find that superheroes are the bachelors or the billionaires - and everyone loves them. Peter Parker is basically the complete opposite. I just think that's what a lot of kids feel like as they're growing up.
'Infinity War' needs no teasing. That movie literally needs no teasing. It's going to be the biggest movie of all time. Believe me; no one is ready for this movie.
I feel like I've been playing Spider-Man my whole life. He's a character I've been pretending to be in my bedroom since I was a kid - so I've been preparing for this forever, I think.
I think, for me, I've realized the responsibility of being a role model for young kids everywhere.
Spider-Man has always been a huge part of my life. I love the movies. I love the comics. And I always just wanted to be Spider-Man.
It was amazing for me to play a character opposite Benedict Cumberbatch - he's someone who I've looked up to for years - and the idea that I would work with him and then become friends with him was an amazing experience.
That's what I love about working for Marvel is how welcoming and kind everyone is.
I've always had an argument with my best friend that Spider-Man was way better than Batman. I was a massive fan growing up.
I was terrified watching 'Civil War' for the first time.
I want to work with Bayona again. I keep emailing my agent about it. Even the smallest role, I'll do it.
I think directing is something I would really enjoy.
Spider-Man is loved by a huge range of people. I think the real target audience is people younger than 16. It's because he's going through what they're going through.
I am definitely the same person I was when I finished 'The Impossible.' That's one of the things I really strive to keep.
A lot about this industry is about who you know. If you set a really good example for yourself, and someone likes that, then they might recommend you to someone else. It doesn't matter what job you're in, any profession, it's always the same.
Dublin is one of my favourite cities. It's an absolutely amazing place.
I try and let the film do the talking.
I'd love to make a movie with Tom Hardy. If we ever got the chance to make a Venom movie together, that would be super-cool, but his movie would have to take place in the MCU because I'm not giving up my ticket in the MCU.
I haven't seen 'The Empire Strikes Back' - I'm not gonna lie.
I get recognized more for my 'Lip Sync Battle' than I do for being Spider-Man.
I reckon I had 30 Spider-Man costumes over the years since I was a little baby. I had Spider-Man bed sheets.
It's very easy to relate to a kid who is having trouble in high school... less so to relate to a billionaire whose Lamborghini broke down.
I started dancing because of Janet Jackson.
I remember actually going to see the first 'Avengers' with one of my best mates from home. I'd never have dreamed that I'd be in one of these movies, let alone playing Spider-Man.
There is so much to sailing a ship. There's about a thousand different lines on a brig ship, and knowing what each one of those does, it takes a long time, and that's why you have these cabin boys that start on the ship, and they learn throughout the years, and that's why it takes so long to captain one.
I had acquired the skills to sail a ship; I didn't acquire the knowledge.
