Tom Holland is a young English actor and dancer known for his roles in Billy Elliot the Musical and the 2012 film The Impossible, but mostly for being the new Spider Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Though he just got to 21 years old, his Hollywood debut is quite impressive, and his net worth so far is a good enough $22 million in 2021.
Thomas Stanley Holland was born on June 1, 1996 in Kingston upon Thames, London in a family of artists. His mother, Nicola, is a photographer and his father, Dominic, is a comedian and author. He also has three younger brothers.
Besides this, Tom took dance classes at Nifty Feet Dance School in Wimbledon, London, and in 2006, while he was performing with his dance school as part of the Richmond Dance Festival, he was spotted by choreographer Lynne Page.
Lynne happened to be an associate of Peter Darling, the choreographer of Billy Elliot and Billy Elliot the Musical, so in 2008, Tom ended up playing the role of Michael, Billy’s best friend.
His performance in the musical brought him a lot of praise and rave reviews and opened new paths in the entertainment industry.
Following his role in Billy Elliot the Musical, Tom Holland’s voice was used in 2011 in the British version of Arrietty, a Japanese animated film. Next came his debut and breakthrough role in the feature film The Impossible.
The movie was a critical and commercial success and brought Tom even more praise for his performance and several awards such as the London Film Critics Circle Award for Young British Performer of the Year.
Two other movies followed in the next years, one in 2013, How I live Now and the other one in 2015, In the Heart of the Sea.
But Tom Holland’s most important appearance came in 2016 in Captain America: Civil War where he was cast as the new version of Spider-Man. His role was very well received all over the world and fans are waiting for the upcoming movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This year you might have seen Tom Holland in the biographical adventure drama The Lost City of Z and you will get to watch him again in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which will come out shortly.
Theater and Other Work
Outside of the movie industry, Tom Holland remained involved in many other projects as well. One of them is theater, with his appearances in Billy Elliot the Musical, until May 2010.
He also started to work in television, appearing in the six episodes of the 2015’s British miniseries Wolf Hall and this year in the American musical reality show Lip Sync Battle.
Don’t worry if you didn’t understand what that is about. We didn’t either, at first. But we found out it’s when you try to match someone else’s lip movements when they speak or sing. As if there wasn’t anything else better to do here on Earth.
We don’t know of any Tom Holland endorsements, but we did find out something else. In a recent Facebook live interview for Yahoo Movies, he admitted that he’s got loads of Spider-Man toys in his room. And that when he goes to sleep, he cuddles himself in his soft Spidey blankets. Should we count that as an endorsement or… well, we’ll let you judge that for yourself.
Houses and Cars
As for cars, we know that he just got his drivers’s license, but he doesn’t own any car yet. Actually, he doesn’t need any car, he’s got Spidey blankets.
Tom Holland Net Worth Over Time
Tom Holland’s net worth might not be very big right now, but wait for his upcoming movies. He barely started.
In the beginning he earned the decent sum of $500,000 in 2010 for his performance in Billy Elliot the Musical. In 2011, his paycheck for Arrietty was around $55,500, and for The Impossible get cashed in $71,400.
The films How I Live Now (2013) and In The Heart of the Sea (2015) brought him both another $255,000.
For his role in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, he got paid $250,000. A shy start, but wait for the highly expected Spider-Man: Homecoming, which will come out in a few weeks.
All in all, Tom Holland’s present net worth of $22 million will rise for sure after the release of the new movie.
