Tom Holland might not be a household name yet, but that is all about to change thanks to the Brit actor landing himself the role replacing Andrew Garfield as ‘Spider-Man’ in the hit film franchise.

The 19-year-old might be relatively new to the big screen - you might recognise him from 2013’s ‘The Impossible’ - but he’s already cut his showbiz teeth on the stage, having played Billy Elliot in the hit West End musical of the same name.
