“I hadn’t discovered the games until I started making Spider-Man: Homecoming” – Tom Holland
Holland explained that one of the benefits of working for Sony was the connection with PlayStation, so the actors’ lounges were equipped with the latest TVs and PlayStation. Among the games the actor received was Uncharted. Holland also shared that he spent his free time during filming with his best friend on Naughty Dog adventures.
“As soon as we started we couldn’t stop. I remember them trying to drag me out of my trailer, I was like ‘No no no, we’re about to complete this mission,'” joked Holland. His love for the series made it much easier for him to settle into the role of young Nathan Drake.
