Tom Holland, known for playing Peter Parker/Spiderman in the Marvel franchise, started dancing at a young age and performed in Billy Elliot the Musical on the West End. He made his film debut in 2012 in The Impossible, directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, alongside Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor. Tom was praised so highly, that there were even rumours he was a contender for an Academy Award nomination. Slowly making his way through the industry with featuring in films such as How I Live Now (2013) and In the Heart of the Sea (2015), it wasn't until 2015 when Tom broke through by being cast as Spiderman in Captain America Civil War (2016) signing on to a six-picture deal with Marvel Studios.
Looking back at how these actors, and several household names, all started off are different to one another. However, one thing that they all had in common was determination and passion on making a career from acting.
