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 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?

    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.

    As a professional voice actor in 6 languages, I know at least 20 British people who can do Irish and American, as well as Scottish. It's not uncommon at all. The Irish accent wasn't great, but the American ones are fine. Nothing outstanding to be honest, especially when you receive top of the line training.

    Speaking as a Brit, his accents are pretty shit. Americans though, tend to struggle in general with accents so I guess that is fine- there aren't many good American actors with great accents. Wales and New Zealand tend to have the best actors for accents to my ears.

    Dialect is British? You mean English my man. What is it with Americans calling English accents British? Where does that leave the Scottish, Irish and Welsh accent? Weird that Americans in general have never bothered to learn we have 4 countries over here and not only are there many accent variations within each country but each country itself even has its own language in some cases. I mean Welsh is British, English in a Welsh accent is British, Gaelic is British, English from London/South East (which is what Americans normally mean by British) is British but so is Geordie.
