Early life and Family
Thomas Stanley Holland was born on 1 June 1996 in Kingston upon Thames in south west London, to photographer Nicola (née Frost) and Dominic Holland, a comedian and author. He has three younger brothers. His paternal grandmother was from Tipperary, Ireland. Holland lives in Kingston upon Thames, near the house of his parents and younger brothers. As his parents have creative professions, he is often inspired by them, he considers his father a role model who has unofficially worked as his manager due to his experience in the industry.
Holland was educated at Donhead, an all-male Catholic preparatory school in Wimbledon in south west London. When he was seven, he was diagnosed with dyslexia. His parents sent him and his brothers (to avoid making them feel neglected) to a private school so he could get the necessary attention. Although Holland liked the new school, this started to drain his family’s finances. Holland attended Wimbledon College, a voluntary aided Jesuit comprehensive school, followed by the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in Croydon.
Growing up, Holland considered several career choices. As a child, he was a fan of Janet Jackson’s songs, and would often dance to them. His mother, impressed with this, signed him up for a dancing class, which was advertised in the private school that Holland was visiting at the time. In his teens, Holland briefly attended carpentry school in Cardiff, Wales. At one point, he considered becoming a primary school teacher, as he enjoys being around children.
Nadia Khomani of The Guardian said that Holland’s “cheeky British charm, vulnerability and wit” has made him the object of infatuation on the internet. Jonathan Dean of The Sunday Times considered him to be “poised and professional, but also so confident and personable” and took note of his maturity “despite boyish wiriness”. German actor Sönke Möhring, his co-star from The Impossible, similarly remarked on his professionalism, adding, “he is blessed with a deep soul down to earth, very polite and a friendly kid.” Kevin Macdonald, who directed Holland in How I Live Now, praised him as confident, “articulate and enthusiastic”, and attributed Holland’s success to his positive energy. When asked about the secret to his success, Holland said he believes in avoiding trouble and working hard.
Holland appeared on Screen International’s “UK Stars of Tomorrow – 2012”, and The Hollywood Reporter’s “Next Gen 2015”, a list of promising newcomers in film. In 2019, he featured on Forbes’ “30 Under 30 Europe”, a list of influential people under 30 years, and Insider Inc.’s “45 young stars who will one day rule Hollywood”. After appearing on Glamour’s “Hot, Young & British Actors 2020”, he was named among the best actors under 30 by Tuko, and Complex Networks in 2021. In the former listing, Ryan Mutuku described him as “a darling to the English media” because of his openness and willingness to also give interviews not related to film promotions. Calling him “his generation’s biggest leading man” in 2021, GQ’s Oliver Franklin-Wallis wrote, “Holland has ascended to a tier of stardom few actors ever reach, and rarely so young”. Variety editors Brent Lang and Rebecca Rubin reported in December 2021 that after the success of the Spider-Man films, Holland could become a top-paid actor in the future. They noted the lack of young leading men in Hollywood and saw Holland’s potential to herald a new generation of successful actors.
Holland considers himself to be “an impossible people pleaser”, which according to Olivia Singh of Yahoo! News has resulted in his facing burnout and an incident where he vomited after a press conference. A self-admittedly indiscreet person, Holland has gained a reputation for inadvertently spoiling important plot elements of his films during interviews and press conferences. His MCU co-stars labelled him the “least trustworthy” cast member in terms of spoilers. To prevent an incident, he only read parts of Captain America: Civil War’s script. Joe Russo similarly avoided giving Holland the script to Avengers: Endgame, and Holland knew only his lines. Holland has expressed his views on the film industry. In a 2019 interview with The Sunday Times, he spoke for more representation of racial minority and the LGBT community in film. That year, when filmmaker Martin Scorsese criticised Marvel films for their lack of portraying human emotions, Holland responded: “he doesn’t know what it’s like because he’s never made one.” Holland further said that MCU films will always do well commercially regardless of their quality, whereas a bad independent film might not. In 2022, he criticised actor Tom Cruise for taking credit for “resurrect[ing] Hollywood” during the COVID-19 pandemic with Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One (2023) and overlooking the commercial impact of his film Uncharted.
