Holland is adding to his repertoire

Tom Holland secretly tended bars in London in preparation for his latest release, Uncharted, which is based on the popular video game of the same name.

In a recent interview with SiriusXM’s Jessica Shaw, Holland dished on preparing for the massive role of Nathan Drake- the protagonist of the Uncharted game series. He spoke on taking bartending lessons to better prepare himself and even served a few lucky punters at a bar in London.

He explained: “As word spread around town and people started figuring out that ‘apparently Tom Holland’s bartending at this bar,’ then the general manager started figuring it out,” he said. “Eventually, I sort of got kicked out.”

The Spider-Man star has since returned to the bar, which he described as “a little bit of a rocky relationship at the minute.”

He added: “I’ve been giving them a lot of press though. So they just shut up and let me back.”

The actor recently admitted he would love to go on ITV’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here. Speaking in an interview with LADbible about the Uncharted movie, Holland said: “I actually would love to do that. I’d find the eating stuff really difficult – that would not be fun.”

He goes on to say he’d back himself “in all the small spaces and that sort of stuff”, insisting that he’d do well with the “athletic” side of things but admits he has a “short temper” and is “so impatient” so he might find some of the people in there with him “very irritating.”
