Tom Holland goes undercover

Los Angeles, Dec 11 (IANS) Actor Tom Holland has confessed to going undercover in a school for three days to prepare for his role in “Spider-Man: Homecoming”.

“No one knew who I was or what I was doing. I had a fake name and a fake accent,” Holland said during a Facebook live question and answer session, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“(When I revealed who I was) no one believed me. It makes me think that if Peter Parker went up in his school and was like, ‘I’m Spider-Man,’ everyone would be like, ‘Nah, dude, no you’re not’.”

Meanwhile, Holland previously shared he found out he got the part of Spider-Man via a post on Instagram.

Asked how he learned he had got the job, he said: “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.”

He has signed up for a total of three movies and has praised Marvel Studios for giving him a chance to work on other films at the same time.

Holland added: “I do know I have three Spider-Man movies and three solo movies contracted. But if you have another movie, Marvel is so good at working around it. They’re very respectful of your life. They understand that you have to work on other movies, and they try and fix it up so you can work around each other.”
