On a rainy Sunday morning, Tom and his parents arrived at the theatre. When Dominic and Nicole saw a long line of boys dressed in leotards, they realized their son had no chance, as Tom had never professionally danced and hadn't even attended drama club. However, director Stephen Daldry noticed the boy's potential and selected him for further auditions. When the choreographers expressed their outrage that Tom couldn't dance at all, Daldry responded, "Then teach him!"

After two years of training and eight more auditions, Holland was finally accepted into the troupe. He made his debut in the theatre musical "Billy Elliot" in the role of Michael. Three months later, on September 8, 2008, he first took the stage in the leading role. In this role, Tom performed in 180 shows.

Holland not only starred in the series but also co-produced it. Since he had to transform into a mentally unstable person, something he hadn't done before, at least not on such a scale, and because of his producing responsibilities, he was so exhausted after the series that he decided to take a year-long break from his career.
Why Tom Holland Was Scared of His Crowded Room Role
Work on the next installment of "Spider-Man" was supposed to start in 2023, but due to a strike by the Writers Guild of America, it has been postponed to 2024.
