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.

As a native IRISH speaker, the little bit you showed him speaking was actually pretty decent, his accent however... a tad on the leprechaun side
Tom Holland's accent will always be superior

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.
David Edwards
David Edwards:
When he was doing the "Thor son of odin" he was playing an American imitating a British accent. Subtle difference
"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!
Julia Lima
Julia Lima:
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

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 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!

There are some actors I thought were american until I heard their real voice. Goes to show how well they did their accents -Tom Holland, Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Henry Cavill, just to name a few

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
98%: guy talking about his accent etc
2%: Tom actually speaking

"The Devil all the Time" is one of the greatest movies of at least the last 10 yrs. Phenomenal. From beginning to end. I was an immediate fan of his just from that one movie. He slayed that role. Its a movie that will stick in your head for DAYS after watching it. Masterpiece!!
I love this video about Tom Holland's accent work that explains his filmography and barely let's you hear/compare his accents
Ben Knight
Ben Knight:
The part about how Tom occasionally slips back into his American accent by accident reminds me a bit of John Barrowman (famed for playing Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and Torchwood as well as Malcolm Merlyn in Arrow). Despite how he sounds John is actually Scottish but back when he was 9 years old he moved to America and was often bullied because of his Scottish accent which lead to him gradually adopting the American accent. He can pretty easily switch back to a Scottish accent and occasionally it'll just happen to him sub-consciously.
His ability to put on motions and change accents. His astounding acting all together make him one of my favorite actors.
Im pretty sure the accents are produced by the frog that he‘s always hiding in his mouth
Tom Holland is awesome and this just further proves it.
A serious actor who can bring us to tears but also a loveable cutie-pie that delights us and makes us laugh.

Tom Holland with a southern accent is something I didn’t know I needed.
Mason De Gaulle
Mason De Gaulle:
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.

You know what would have been cool? Actually hearing Tom Holland use his accents for the majority of this video.
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?
Mia Lewis
Mia Lewis:
I was hoping to see that scene from the interview when he does the Northern (british) accent “just got back from town” so funny and pretty spot on

Tom Holland was incredible in the impossible. I remember googling his name after watching the movie because is acting was amazing. Years down the line i was super excited that he was going to play Spiderman. His acting is really underestimated though.
Bill Weeks
Bill Weeks:
Kelly MacDonald's Texas accent in "No Country For Old Men" was impressive. The examples depicted in this video were of such a short duration, often 1 or 2 words, that it was impossible for me to make a judgement. His "Irish" accent sounded more like American. So, yeah, I agree with Jocelyn.

When “impossible” first came out I remember saying “these kids are amazing actors!” When I found out the older brother was Tom Holland, everything made sense. I love Tom ❤️

What a great actor, I wish Tom continue stay like this positive, bright, kind and healthy, and climb on top on his career.
Tom Holland is a legend in the making, & he isn't slowing down, nor is he a big head about it! He is constantly grateful for being able to act out films, and he does not make himself the centre star, he involves everyone together, INCLUDING the staff on set!! what a guy, what an incredible human being him and Keanu Reeves should go and hang out for a day!

The Irish was the only weakish one. Does a really good southern lick in in The Devil All the Time though. Definitely one of my favorites from him.
I watched the impossible back in middle school or high school it was amazing and never knew that was Tom Holland. 🤯

He should've gotten nominated for The Impossible.

Lulu Luscious
Lulu Luscious:
He was paid $4M for Spider-Man: No Way Home and it was well-deserved! I legit laughed, cried, hated him in the movie-- loved him. He portrayed the HS mindset and matured throughout the movie masterfully. By the end, I was mad at myself for being so mad at him during the first portion of the movie!! Go watch it! Lol
I didn't really get accent game from this video but rather Tom's range as an actor I never knew how many different movies and roles he has played
in other words, he's perfect

Tom Holland is not only utterly cute & adorable, he is also highly talented actor at such a young age. He is going to make many great movies.
Bee Beau
Bee Beau:
I think this channel overstates how difficult it is to do an American accent (I'm not talking about any specific local accent, just an American accent in general), almost every British person can do an American accent, a British accent is much more complicated than an American's, which is why I've rarely ever seen an American that can do a British accent
His accent is iconic and amazing I love it it’s so sweet and cute 😁
always fascinated by British accent

His accent in the impossible is an australian accent. And he did it very well.

How to talk about Tom Holland's accent for over five minutes while only letting us hear about 0.2 seconds of it.
I first seen Tom Holland as Spider-Man as like a 16 year old and whenever I see him in any other movie I completely forget he’s actually 25
