Spider-Man actor Tom Holland gave a recent interview to The Los Angeles Times during the promotions of his upcoming movie ‘Cherry‘ and explained the changes he made physically to distinguish between the characters he portrayed in his films.
Tom Holland, as an actor, is a name who prefers to portray the characters physically correctly by adding something from himself instead of playing them as written.
The secret of the actor, who works on all details from hand, arm movements to gestures, to successfully portray the role of Peter Parker in a successful production like ‘Spider-Man,’ comes from here.
The actor, who made a statement on this subject, gave an example of the character of Peter Parker, and explained how he followed a way to show him more bubbly and humble giving him a more kid-like posture:
“Physicality for me is the biggest way I try to distinguish between the characters that I play. If you look at Peter Parker, he’s very bubbly, and I do this thing where I leave my arms really loose. It gives him this juvenile, kid-like physicality.”
However, Holland revealed that in his upcoming movie he took a different route and worked hard to create the physical features of his new character. The actor, who lost a lot of weight for this purpose and tried to change himself in every aspect from his hair to the nail, explained the changes he applied as follows:
“With Cherry, cracking his physicality was the biggest part of making this character come to life. That meant losing the weight, physically changing the way I looked —
from hair and makeup to the wigs I was wearing to the costumes I was wearing. It was a really useful tool for me to be able to step out of one version of Cherry and into another.”
Cherry will air on Apple TV + on March 12, 2021, in which Tom Holland portrays an American soldier and is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo.
