During an interview with Backstage, Tom Holland revealed that he auditioned for the role of Finn from Star Wars. According to the actor, initially everything went smoothly, but after a while the audition turned into something funny and terrible:
I’ve had quite a few auditions and some of them really flopped. I remember my audition for the new Star Wars, and I seem to be applying for the character of John Boyega. Lord, I remember the scene with this lady, then I said something like “We have to get back to the ship”, and she answered me “Beep beep beep.”
At that moment, I could not help laughing, because it seemed very funny to me.
Tom noted that he was really embarrassed about the actress partner:
She very convincingly played an android, drone, droid or whatever. This role was clearly not for me.
On the one hand, it would be interesting to look at Tom Holland in the image of Finn, but on the other hand, everyone has already fixed the image that was created by the actor John Boyega. By the way, he will not return to this role anymore.
The new Star Wars trilogy was released from 2015 to 2019.
