LOS ANGELES — Tom Holland may be playing Spider-Man now, but the actor has always been a fan of the wallcrawler.

The 19-year-old English actor said the superhero has been an important part of his life and he enjoyed dressing up as the him for fancy dress parties, reported Variety.

“I have always been a huge fan of Spider-Man, and growing up, I had countless Spider-Man costumes. Only two years ago did I go to a fancy dress party dressed as Spider-Man.

“I had this awesome morph suit where you can put your phone on your chest and spiders would crawl across the costume, it was awesome! He’s always been a big part of my life and a big part of boys’ lives because everybody can relate to him,” Holland said.

The actor, who will be making his web-slinger debut with “Captain America: Civil War”, also explained why Peter Parker stands apart from the others.

“I think one of the most interesting things about Peter Parker for us is that he’s the only person in the MCU now that has a secret identity, so we all know who everyone else is. I think it’s quite interesting to go back to that hiding behind a mask,” he said. PNA/PTI
