13 Jun – Tom Holland recently announced that he is taking a year-long break from acting due to the tough time he had working on his latest project.

The 27-year-old "Spider-Man" star, who starred and produced the Apple TV+ thriller series, "The Crowded Room", played a role loosely based on the US campus rapist Billy Milligan, who claimed to have 24 alternate personalities.

"I'm no stranger to hard work," he said. "I've lived by the idea that hard work is good work. Then again, the show did break me. 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."

Admitting that playing the role required him to explore certain emotions he never experienced before while also dealing with the responsibilities as a producer, which had given him extra level of pressure, Holland said that he is taking a year off to focus on himself.

"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. It was a tough time, for sure," he added.

In a previous interview with EW, Holland admitted he had a bit of a meltdown after not being able to get rid of the character.

"And, obviously, we were mid-shooting, so I decided not to... It was unlike anything I've ever experienced before," he added.
