Starting as an unknown theater boy from England, Holland was catapulted to unprecedented levels of fame in 2016 after his Marvel debut in Captain America: Civil War.

Because the year before that...

The British actor had actually been confirmed as the new SpiderMan.

Now, the role of Peter Parker has long been fought over by many famous faces.

So many were a little shocked to hear that such an unknown actor had been cast.

Holland is also the youngest actor to snap up the role...

But, as the saying goes, age is just a number, right?

The young actor reportedly stood out during the lengthy 5-month audition period...

Directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo said that Holland had the edge because of his prior experience as a gymnast. In the script, Spider-Man flipped in a scene, and Holland reportedly offered to perform the stunt himself during one of the auditions.

But, evidently, the directors' hunches about the budding actor were right...

Because Holland's portrayal of SpiderMan has been a roaring success.

He has now starred in 5 different movies as SpiderMan...

Including Marvel's 2019 hit, Avengers Endgame, which grossed a staggering $1 billion in the box office.

For a twenty-three-year-old actor, he isn't doing too badly for himself, is he?

The Marvel Universe has catapulted Holland into the A-list limelight, and he has gradually become one of the most popular actors in the world of Hollywood.

And, on top of his incredible acting skills...

Holland is also well known for his comically loveable personality off-screen.

The actor struggles notoriously to keep a secret...

We all remember the time he accidentally let slip that his character had died in Infinity War to an audience full of people who hadn't yet seen the movie. Ouch.

It was horribly hilarious.

And it has affected how directors and filmmakers work with the actor. Director, Joe Russo once said of Holland's loose tongue: "Tom Holland gets his lines and that's it. He doesn't even know who he's acting opposite of. We'll just, we use like very vague terms to describe to him what is happening in the scene because he has a very difficult time keeping his mouth shut."

But, despite his motor mouth...

People simply love him and, for many, he simply can do no wrong.

So, his quarantine antics have been welcomed with open arms.

As a result of the global pandemic, the majority of the world is currently sitting in self-isolation, and celebrities are faring no differently.

Many celebrities have been taking to social media to share their self-isolation antics and tips...

But Tom's may have just topped them all.

The young actor spontaneously went out and adopted 3 chickens.

Yes, pet chickens. During quarantine. It's a genius idea, isn't it?

As a result of frenzied stockpiling, the actor found himself short on eggs.

So he decided to get eggs the original way... Through chickens. Taking to Instagram Stories, Tom explained: "With everything that's going on, the supermarkets are all empty and there are no eggs - We had no eggs. So we thought, to solve that problem, we would become the source of eggs. And now, we are the owners of chickens."

"This is Predator."

Incredibly, he has even given his new pets some very suitable names - Predator, Chestnut, and Ranger.

Never change, Tom...

And his adorable kindness has yet again gone a long way in his most recent online appearance.

Tom recently made a surprise appearance on a live-stream with Jimmy Kimmel...

And it was all for Jimmy's son, Billy, who is a diehard SpiderMan fan.

Billy has just turned 3-years-old...

And of course, his birthday party plans have been canceled due to the pandemic.

So Jimmy had the best idea to cheer his son up on his birthday...

And that involved SpiderMan himself!

Of course, Jimmy asked permission first...

"I have a favor to ask of you and that is this, my son Billy turns three years old today, we watched both of your Spider-Man movies over and over and over again," the host explained to Holland. "And we promised him that the real Spider-Man would come to his party. Now, of course, we were just going to hire a guy in a suit, but now nobody's coming to his party, his party is just us, and I was wondering if you would say hello to him. I can't guarantee it's going to register, but would you mind?"

Naturally, Holland was more than happy to help...

And he quickly changed into his own makeshift red suit to prepare for the big surprise.

Jimmy then brought on Billy, who was wearing his own Spidey Suit, and his big sister Jane...

And they had absolutely no idea what was about to happen... which was the cutest thing!

Jimmy promised his son that the real SpiderMan would come to his birthday party...

"I want you to say hi to someone here," Jimmy told his kids as Holland appeared on screen, wearing his red hood over his face in disguise.

And when Holland removed his mask...

Jane suddenly exclaimed, "That's Peter Parker!" while Billy stared in astonishment.

Billy began hiding in his dad's shoulder in excitement...

"Hey Billy! How you doing? My name is Peter Parker and I live in Queens, New York... where do you live?" Holland asked the overwhelmed youngster. But Jane seemed to be doing the most talking, with her replying, "We live in California!"

The group then sang "Happy Birthday" as Billy blew out a candle on his SpiderMan cake.
