After acting in a bunch of American movies and establishing his career in Hollywood, the 27-year-old British actor turned into an overnight star and a global icon. His most appreciated movie was the MCU’s Spider-Man trilogy. However, while he appeared as the teenage superhero in the movies alongside Zendaya, the actor faced an issue with his accent.
Born in Britain, the English actor, Tom Holland initially had to change his accent for his Spider-Man movies. However, later, after appearing in several back-to-back MCU films, Holland struggled to get back his British accent. Appearing on The Graham Norton Show, the British actor recalled how he was once trolled for acting in an American accent during an ad shoot.

The struggle is real for him, as constantly moving back and forth between accents can be difficult, even for proficient actors.
