The actor made his film debut in the disaster drama ‘The Impossible’ where he played the role of a teenage tourist trapped in a tsunami.
So far, the actor has appeared in hits like ‘Uncharted’, ‘The Impossible’, ‘Cherry’ along with several Marvel films.
While the actor, who has appeared on the Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe list, is enjoying a healthy career in films in his early 20s, fans of Holland are convinced that the 26-year-old practically “manifested” his entire life.
To give you context, manifestation means “bringing something tangible into your life through attraction and belief.”

But why do fans believe that Holland has manifested his entire life? Well, it all started after interviews from the actor’s past resurfaced online, pushing fans to connect the dots between past and the present.
In these interviews, the 26-year-old actor had spoken about his interest in things such as starring as a particular superhero, or working with a certain ace actor, only to have those wishes come true years later.
How Did It All Start?
Holland got his big break when he was cast as the new Spider-Man in Marvel’s six films, including the latest flick, ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.
After the actor was all over the Internet and making headlines for his amazing performance as the new web-slinger, old videos resurfaced which revealed that Holland had been dreaming of getting into the red and blue spandex for quite a while.
A few years ago, Holland was speaking on the red carpet at the Empire Awards during the premiere of his debut film ‘The Impossible’ when he spoke about the kind of roles he wanted to take on in the future.
When a person asked if playing a superhero was on his radar, excited Holland replied “Oh, yeah! Yeah, yeah, yeah. I don’t know, what superhero would I want to play? Maybe Spider-Man in, like, 10 years’ time …”
“The reboot of the reboot, if they made one,” he added. And the rest is history.
But this isn’t it.
Zendaya: From Crush To Girlfriend
In another incident, Holland was asked who his ‘first ever celebrity crush’ was, to which the actor quickly replied “Zendaya”. And … he is now in a happy relationship with the actress, who is also his ‘Spider-Man’ co-star.
Now do you remember Holland starring in the 2022 American action-adventure film ‘Uncharted’ which is based on the video game franchise published by Sony Interactive Entertainment?
Well, guess which is the actor’s favorite video game? Bingo! It’s ‘Uncharted’. In the video dating back to 2017, the actor was answering a fan’s question when he said “My favorite video game is this little game called ‘Uncharted’ That’s my favorite game.”
The film was released in 2022 which starred the 26-year-old as the professional treasure hunter Nathan Drake.

Working Alongside Jake Gyllenhaal
Another mention in Holland’s bucket list dreams was working with Hollywood star Jake Gyllenhaal, which was fulfilled as well when the latter starred in ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ as Mysterio.
In a 2019 interview, Holland revealed that in some of his past interviews, he had dropped Gyllenhaal’s name.
“If you look at any interview I’ve ever done prior to this movie and someone asked me, ‘Who would you work with if you could work with any actor?’ I would’ve said Jake Gyllenhaal,” Holland says. “And when I found out it was him, I was stoked, but also really nervous. But Jake absolutely was more than I ever could have expected.” The only issue was “sometimes they would crack each other up, and we could not get through it takes occasionally,” Watts says with a laugh. “It was a problem!”
After taking into account these hard facts, it’s fair to say that Holland’s fans are on to something. Anyway, here’s wishing the ‘King of Manifestation’ a very happy birthday!
