The announcement of Tom Holland's next role came as a bit of a surprise to his fans. Tuesday February 7, the British actor published on social networks the promotional video for the new production by director Jamie Lloyd, Romeo and Juliet, in which the latest Peter Parker will play the famous lover.
“Tom Holland is one of the most talented and exciting young actors in the world. “It’s an honor to welcome him back to the West End,” Jamie Lloyd said in a statement. “Tom Holland is Romeo in Jamie Lloyd's thrilling new vision of Shakespeare's immortal tale,” reads the show's website.
In June 2023, the British actor announced that he was taking a break after filming the series The Crowded Room, broadcast on Apple TV. Interviewed by ExtraTV , he explained that he was deeply affected by his role, both in the series and on set: “I felt certain emotions that I had never experienced before. And on top of that, being a producer, dealing with the day-to-day issues that can arise on set, added an extra level of pressure.”
Seven months later, the 27-year-old actor is ready to return to the stage. Away from the screens this time, he returned to his origins for a limited series of performances, spread over 12 weeks, starting in May. On social networks, his fans joke about seeing the actress Zendaya, his partner in life, in the role of Juliette.
