Tom Holland’s latest role in The Crowded Room really took it out of him and had a ‘tough time’ filming the project. The Apple TV+ thriller series is both produced and starred in by 27-year-old Holland. He portrays a role that is partially based on Billy Milligan, known as “the campus rapist” and a US citizen who claimed to have 24 different personalities. Holland said, “I’m no stranger to hard work. I’ve lived by the idea that hard work is good work. Then again, the show did break me.”

He continued, “There did come a time where I needed a break and disappeared and went to Mexico for a week and had time on a beach and laid low.” He added, “I’m now taking a year off, and that is a result of how difficult this show was. I am excited to see how it turns out. I feel like our hard work wasn’t in vain.”
