We've heard a lot of bad Irish accents in the past, but Holland's is actually - okay.
In case you weren't aware (we hadn't the foggiest), Tom Holland starred in an Irish film before he became the international superhero Spider-Man.
Called 'Pilgrimage', the production is set in Ireland during 1209, meaning Holland's knowledge of Gaeilge is put to good use as he stars as a Monk named Brother Diarmuid. Diarmuid and a group of Monks must make a pilgrimage across our small island which has been torn apart by years of tribal warfare while avoiding the Norman invaders, with a powerful relic in their possession.
The film didn't fare too badly with critics and audiences, a certified "Fresh" pick on Rotten Tomatoes with a 68% Tomatometer rating. It also stars Jon Bernthal, Richard Armitage and some other recognisable Irish actors including Hugh O'Connor and Lochlann O'Mearáin. The film can be streamed via the Google Play store.
Thank you to Twitter user Conchúr Ó Gionnáin for bringing this little nugget of Tom Holland and his Irish film goodness to our attention. Here's a clip from the film of the actor speaking as Gaeilge.
We'd love to say that it was his appearance in 'Pilgrimage' that turned Tom Holland into a household name, but that title goes to a little-known movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. Both were released in the same year, but it was his solo film as the web-slinger that turned him into a fan-favourite actor. He made his first on-screen appearance as Spider-Man in 'Captain America: Civil War'.
The final entry in the Spider-Man trilogy 'No Way Home' will be released this December and will see him (reportedly) face his biggest challenge yet - the Sinister Six. The action blockbuster swings into cinemas on December 17.
