Tom Holland once revealed that he lost his role in Star Wars because he couldn’t control his laughter.
Tom Holland is one of the actors who rose to prominence after portraying Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, in the Marvel universe. Following his enormous success, Tom has worked on a number of prestigious projects, including The Devil All The Time and Uncharted. His performance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, along with the other two Spider-Men, was widely praised. But did you know Tom once lost a role in a billion-dollar franchise because he couldn’t stop laughing?
Unfortunately, not every actor’s career goes as planned. Many actors lose the roles they so desperately want to play for a variety of reasons. Ryan Gosling turned down Fifty Shades Of Grey, Emma Watson regrets not doing La La Land, and our friendly neighbourhood superhero, Holland, has done the same.
Tom Holland once told Backstage about an incident that occurred while he was auditioning for Star Wars. Talking about how he lost the part because he couldn’t control his laughter, he admitted that he felt terrible about it. Tom stated, “I remember my audition for Star Wars, I was like four or five auditions in, and I think I was auditioning for John Boyega’s role, I remember doing this scene with this lady, bless her, and she was just a drone.”
“So I was doing all of this, like, ‘We gotta get back to the ship!’ And she was going, ‘Bleep, bloop bloop, bleep bloop.’ I just couldn’t stop laughing. I found it so funny. And I felt really bad, because she was trying really hard to be a convincing android or drone or whatever they’re called. Yeah, I obviously didn’t get the part. That wasn’t my best moment”, Tom Holland further added in the conversation.
