Tom Holland is one of Hollywood's biggest stars because to his record-breaking performance as Peter Parker in Marvel's Spider-Man.
However, the actor hilariously missed a crucial role in 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In 2021, Holland said Backstage he had "quite a few" bad movie auditions. The actor then described his Finn audition for The Force Awakens, which John Boyega won.
“I remember my Star Wars audition, I was like four or five auditions in, and I think I was auditioning for John Boyega’s role,” Holland said.
“Bless her, she was a drone in this scene. ‘We have get back to the ship!’ I was doing all this. ‘Bleep, bloop, bleep,’ she said.
I laughed nonstop. It's hilarious.” “I obviously didn’t get the part,” said the Crowded Room actor, who “felt really bad” for giggling during his audition. That wasn’t my best.”
Holland recounted the identical story on the hit YouTube series Hot Ones, expressing amazement that someone would audition as a robot.
Holland was named Spider-Man the same year The Force Awakens was released, despite his awful Star Wars audition. The actor's Spider-Man trilogy earned $3.9 billion worldwide by 2023. Thus, everything worked out.
