Tom Holland gained global fame when he made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War,” and he’s come a long way since then.

The 24-year-old British actor has starred in five total MCU films and a third “Spider-Man” movie is set to hit theaters on November 5, 2021. In 2019, he appeared in two of the year’s films that hit $1 billion at the box office“Avengers: Endgame” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home.”

In September 2008 at 12 years old, the actor made his debut as the titular character at the Victoria Palace Theatre in London’s West End.

During a 2017 interview with “Spider-Man: Homecoming” costar Jacob Batalon for Moviefone, Holland revealed that his first kiss happened with one of the girls who played Debbie in the play.

“I was dared to make out with her,” Holland recalled. “Dared by a friend because I was falling madly in love with her, but she had no interest in kissing me. She was dared to and I made out with her for all of three seconds and it was magical.”

Holland revealed his crush during an interview with British GQ in 2017, in which he was asked: “If you could pick any love interest from the Marvel universe for Spider-Man, who would it be?”

In response, the actor said, “I think Scarlet Witch is pretty hot, you know. I think Elizabeth Olsen is super hot and really nice as well. She was really nice to me at the premiere.”
