The Spiderman fame Tom Holland decides to take a year’s break from acting. In a recent video interview, he opened up about this decision after the production of his crime thriller known as “The Crowded Room.” Is the “crowded room” the reason behind this break or he just wants to enjoy his life, keep reading to know more.

The Apple TV+ launching crime thriller stars Tom as Danny Sullivan. The base of the story is the character is arrested in the summer of 1979 due to his involvement in the shooting at the Rockefeller Center. The show is basically based on the real crime story of Billy Milligan who was suffering from dissociative identity disorder. It also looks like Tom deciding to take a break is due to the disturbances caused by the show.

Well, usually actors need to take the character from within due to which they might get mentally disturbed. There have been many instances where actors are depressed and disturbed due to the role they played. Some also go into severe medication and counseling to get over the role. It might be predicted that Tom might be in the same situation.

In the interview, Tom said that he had a tough time experiencing the role. He was dealing with the role but also he had a lot of pressure being a producer of the show at the same time.

“It was a tough time, for sure,” Holland mentioned about the production. “We were exploring certain emotions that I have definitely never experienced before. And then on top of that, being a producer, dealing with the day-to-day problems that come with any film set, just added that extra level of pressure.”

Don’t forget the exclusive news on gossipybio>>>>>Austin Butler and Kaia Gerber are already engaged but kept things lowkey! Are the rumors true? 

It is understood what he dealt with. He had two roles to be perfect. A role of an actor and a role of a producer. One way he is dealing with all the psych of the character and the other way he had pressure to make it perfect. He was juggling between the two different roles which broke his limits. Although he mentioned that he loved being a producer.

He mentioned that the job pushed his mental state limit. Also, he is someone who is known for hard work but the show did break him.

“I’m no stranger to hard work,” Holland said. “I’ve lived by the idea that hard work is good work. Then again, the show did break me.

Tom recalled that there was a time when he wanted a break desperately and get disappeared somewhere for a week. But maybe he couldn’t at the time. Now, all the pressure and work resulted him in taking a year’s break. He is pretty excited about the result of the show and patiently waiting for the reaction. He says,

I am excited to see how it turns out. I feel like our hard work wasn’t in vain.

Also during the interview he mentioned being super frustrated with the character he was playing. Sometimes he would just want to shave off his head to get out of the character but would stop himself as the shoot was still going on. Tom says he has never experienced such a thing before this role.

Also, Holland confirms his perspective on his own mental health. He learned several things after meeting some psychiatrists about the struggles of the character and he’s learned a lot from them.

“Learning about mental health and the power of it, and speaking to psychiatrists about Danny and Billy’s struggles, has been something that has been so informative to my own life,” the actor said, noting he is now able to “recognize triggers” like social media “that stress me out.”

The show “The Crowded Room” is going to feature Amanda Seyfried, Sasha Lane, Will Chase, Lior Raz, Laila Robins, Christopher Abbott, and Henry Eikenberry. We hope all struggles of Tom get its success and wish him luck for the show.
