Tom Holland admits being scared while taking on his role in the new crime drama “Cherry”. The film casts him as a soldier-turned-bank robber who suffers from PTSD, and the “Spider-Man” star says he was not sure if he could do justice to the role.
“I was on the Disney lot doing my last day of work on ‘Avengers: Endgame’ when Joe and Anthony mentioned a movie they wanted to do. I was immediately up for it. I was like, ‘I’m in for whatever you guys are doing. If it’s just two pages of dialogue, or an entire film, I’m there’,” Holland told in an interview with OK! Magazine, according to femalefirst.co.uk.
He added, “And then they sent me the book on which the story was based and I was blown away. This is something very different for me. I was massively scared too.”
The actor wanted to make sure his portrayal spread the right message.
“I wanted to please everyone and do justice to the story and to the thousands of stories around the world that are about recovery, addiction, or PTSD. I felt a real sense of responsibility to get it right,” he said.
Tom holland said, “It’s a film with a strong message that needs to be heard”, through one of his social media posts that read: “Cherry now belongs to you. It’s a film with a strong message that needs to be heard. I’m incredibly proud to have been apart of this movie, so go check it out on @appletv”.
