Fans of the Spider-Man actor have lauded his versatility in the new Apple TV series, The Crowded Room.
The Apple TV series also stars Amanda Seyfried, Emmy Rossum, and Sasha Lane. It follows Holland’s character who is arrested following a shooting at Rockefeller in 1979.
Holland, 27, has since revealed he is taking a year-long break from acting after the role “broke him”.
He plays Danny Sullivan in the thriller, a young man who is arrested on suspicion of committing a bone-chilling crime and reveals details about his alternate personality disorder during interviews with an interrogator, played by Seyfried.
One of the character‘s other personalities is a woman named Ariana, who has an intimate scene with a man during one of the episodes.
Viewers shared their thoughts on Twitter after watching the episode, praising Tom for his ‘exceptionally brilliant acting’ and ‘diversity’.
One person wrote: “I really love tom holland’s diversity on a serious note like he’s so open to all roles and that’s what we need in Hollywood these days.”
“Tom Holland actually is one of my favourite actors so versatile,” another added.

A third person posted: “Tom Holland is exceptionally brilliant on #TheCrowdedRoom. The first 5 episodes of the show didn’t give anything away.”
“That one scene of Tom Holland from The Crowded Room that’s going around is not what people think it is, if people actually watched the show they would know there’s a lot more to it psychologically. Ngl though it did catch me off guard,” someone else shared.
Another approving fan added: “Tom Holland out here killing it as an actor tbh Love to see it
“The Crowded Room is done so brilliantly, once someone is shown as a victim of mental health and not made out to be totally crazy!!”
“Danny isn’t a criminal, he’s someone who is trapped and genuinely needs help, he is a good person and none of this is his fault!” another commented.
