Tom Holland's Accent Game Is Beyond Impressive | Netflix

Ever since becoming an international superstar, Tom Holland has continued to charm audiences with his friendly demeanor and on-screen talents. But there's one thing about him that does seem to surprise fans whenever he's appearing as himself: His ultra-convincing American accent is not real, and Holland's natural dialect is actually British.

Here's a look at just how impressive Tom Holland's accent game really is.

Tom Holland made his silver screen debut in J.A. Bayona's 2012 disaster biopic The Impossible, which featured him as Lucas, a child who is separated from his parents in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Holland spent much of his time in the film sharing the screen with Naomi Watts, who played his injured mother and who received an Academy Award nomination for her work in the film.

He also had to carry multiple scenes on his own, though, including one heart wrenching moment when Lucas steps up to help reunite a father and son, despite being ripped away from his own family. The scene required Holland to do a bit of language barrier-breaking in his search, since the family he helped was from Sweden, but Holland stuck to his own British roots for the role.

He continued to use his own accent in several parts to follow, including his turn as Isaac in the 2013 Kevin Macdonald drama How I Live Now. But as Holland's acting opportunities began expanding even further, he started to experiment with new elocutions on-screen.

Tom’s performance on The Devil All The Time and Cherry were both a MASTERPIECE
*He also delivers several lines in Gaelic*

Fun fact: In Ireland we don't say that we speak Gaelic, we just call it Irish, if u were to ask an Irish person to teach you some gaelic, they'll probably reply with "sure, hand us a ball and I'll show you how to hand pass".

Got to hand it to Tom tho, irish is a very hard language to pronounce and he actually did quite well

When he was doing the "Thor son of odin" he was playing an American imitating a British accent. Subtle difference

Before him, we have these actors who mastered accents:

1. Johnny Depp - HE has lots of characters which needed acceents like Jack Sparrow and The Mad hatter.
2. Bill Nighy (Davy Jones in Pirates of the carribean) - He studied dutch accent just for his role
3. Simon Baker (The Mentalist) - He can turn off his ausie accent for his character Patrick Jane

Christian Poynter:
His American (New York) accent is one of the best I've heard done by a Brit. So many either still sound British, or over-compensate and go really heavy on the Rs. Tom's sounds totally natural to me and I'd never guess he was British without already knowing.

"The Impossible" is one of the best film ever made and I was SO impressed with Tom in it even before I knew his name. In fact, I only connected the dots years later. If you haven't seen this film, it's a MUST WATCH!
"The Impossible" still IS his best acting work. He's the one that really carried the whole movie. He should've been nominated for an Oscar, and possibly won it!
Catalina Capurro
Catalina Capurro:
Tom Holland, Harry Melling and Robert Pattinson did an AMAZING job in "The devil all the time" with their US American accents. It was incredible!

The "starting out" accent is even more impressive in that he's using an Australian accent, not British, very tough one to pull off convincingly.

Perhaps he can be the first non-Swede to nail a Swedish accent, let's get him a role as a Swedish person soon!
As an English person, the description of an English accent as "British" really winds me up. British encompasses English, Welsh, Scottish, and Irish. He has an ENGLISH accent. Weirdly you refer to it as an English accent once. Why not the entire time?
as someone who lived in wv for almost a decade, i will attest tom holland's accent is very convincing.
