Tom Holland Describes How He Messed Up His Star Wars Audition

Before he was Spider-Man, Tom Holland was apparently multiple auditions deep into a Star Wars role he thinks eventually went to John Boyega – but messed it up and didn’t get the part.

This audition story comes by way of Backstage in a new interview with the Spider-Man and Uncharted actor. Before becoming synonymous with Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and before nabbing the role of famed treasure hunter, Nathan Drake , Holland was apparently “four or five” auditions deep for a role in what we now know as Star Wars: The Force Awakens “I remember my audition for Star Wars,” Holland told Backstage when asked about audition horror stories he had. “I was like four or five auditions in, and I think I was auditioning for John Boyega’s role [Finn]. I remember doing this scene with this lady, bless her, and she was just a drone. So I was doing all of this, like, ‘We gotta get back to the ship!’ and she was going, ‘Bleep, bloop bloop, bleep bloop.”
