Tom Holland is an English actor. A graduate of the BRIT School in London, he began his acting career on stage in the title role of "Billy Elliot the Musical" in London's West End from 2008 to 2010. He gained further recognition for his starring role in the disaster film The Impossible, receiving the London Film Critics Circle Award for Young British Performer of the Year.

In May 2017, it was announced that he had been cast as a young Nathan Drake in the 2022 film adaptation of Naughty Dog's Uncharted video game series. Principal photography began in March 2020, shooting in Berlin, but was placed on hold indefinitely in mid-March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project has encountered development problems, with Holland set for a supporting role alongside an ensemble cast with Keanu Reeves, Daniel Radcliffe, Anne Hathaway, Jeff Goldblum and Chloë Grace Moretz. Following Carruth's announcement of retirement and he himself releasing the full script and the unfinished score, the project is now unlikely to begin production anytime soon. In October 2020, Holland started working on Spider-Man: No Way Home, which will end filming in March 2021.

Holland has said that his long-term career plans include "do[ing] some more franchises," and playing "some meatier indie roles and eventually...transition to the other side of the camera and branch into directing."
