Tom Holland wants to “take a break” from his acting career to “focus on starting a family”.
The ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ actor – who has upcoming roles on ‘Uncharted’ and starring in a Fred Astaire biopic – has admitted that after six years as an actor, he wants to step down as an actor and prioritize his personal life in webslinging Superhero on the big screen.
He told PEOPLE magazine, “I’ve spent the past six years focusing on my career like this.
“I want to take a break and focus on raising a family and figuring out what I want to do outside of this world.”
Tom, who is dating his ‘Spider-Man’ co-star Zendaya, announced that while he “will” wait to start a family, he’s excited about the idea of future parents.
He added, “I love children. I can’t wait to become a father – I can wait and I will, but I can’t wait!
“When I’m at a wedding or a party, I always hang out at the children’s table. My father was such a great role model for me.
“I think I got that from him. So I think I would be a primary school teacher or something like that [if I wasn’t acting].”
Meanwhile, the 25-year-old actor, who was cast as Peter Parker’s alter ego for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” in 2015, has suggested that it might be time to pass the torch on and give someone else a chance to make his own to make your own spin on the character.
He explained, “I enjoyed every minute of it. I’m so grateful to Marvel and Sony for giving us the opportunity, keeping us going, and allowing our characters to evolve.
“It was amazing. And that’s why I don’t want to say goodbye to Spider-Man – but I have the feeling we could be ready to say goodbye to Spider-Man. “
And if he goes on, he’d like to see the role “more diverse” after being portrayed by himself, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.
He said, “I would like to see a more diverse future for Spider-Man – maybe you have a Spider-Gwen or a Spider-Woman.
“We had three Spider-Mans in a row; we were all the same. It would be nice to see something else. “
