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.

"Europeans love Americans"
Every European: makes school shootout jokes😂
*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
Tom had an Australian accent in the first one... not British

"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!

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?
"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!

"His dialect is British"

Which one? He ain't Scottish or Welsh mate,
Hes not cockney either but he is from London

There are hundreds of dialects in Britain, he speaks with a sort of Estuary mixed with RP.

Also, we consume a lot of American media in this country so we are familiar with American accents.
In particular Hollywood, New York and Texas accents I would say cos I think they appear the most in YouTube, films and television.
When I do an American accent it tends to drift to different dialects so, for example, I go from Alabama to Texas all of a sudden.
But with a bit of coaching like Tom has, its probably not too difficult to stop it drifting.
I don’t know whose accent is better, Tom Holland’s or Daniel Ezras
3:52 It's weird seeing the punisher and spider-man together lol
as someone who lived in wv for almost a decade, i will attest tom holland's accent is very convincing.

Christian Poynter
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.
Absolutely yes 👏🏻

3.25 "Holland has also shown some skills with an Irish accent" *does a shitty american accent* jesus christ that didn't have a HINT of Irish to it.
As a professional voice actor in 6 languages, I know at least 20 British people who can do Irish and American, as well as Scottish. It's not uncommon at all. The Irish accent wasn't great, but the American ones are fine. Nothing outstanding to be honest, especially when you receive top of the line training.
