BAFTA Rising Star Tom Holland says he’ll be asking Andrew Garfield for Spider-Man advice

The new webslinger met his predecessor for the first time at the Bafta Film Awards


He’s following in his err, webbed footsteps, so it’s little wonder Tom Holland would look to Andrew Garfield for some guidance as he prepares to bring Spider-Man back to the big screen.


And it looks as though he’ll finally get to, now the pair have had the chance to meet for the first time at the 2017 Bafta Film Awards.

“He’s everything I hoped he’d be”, the young star told press backstage after he picked up the Rising Star Award for his recent work. “I look forward to picking his brains and seeing if he has any advice for me”, Holland added.

Garfield will surely have plenty of tips for his successor. With two Spider-Man films under his belt, his Spidey Sense is well and truly honed.

“It’s a dream come true, everyone wants to be Spider-Man”, said Holland of his role in the Marvel franchise. “I’m just the lucky sh*t who got to do it”.


The BAFTAs were held at London’s Royal Albert Hall and attended by the likes of Meryl Streep, JK Rowling, Mel Brooks, Prince William and many, many more.
