Tom Holland goes undercover to prepare for Spider-Man role

汤姆·赫兰德: 蜘蛛侠演员的两日学霸生活

Halfway through his senior year at the Bronx High School of Science, Arun Bishop received an unexpected request. The vice principal approached him with an offer from Marvel Studios.

Marvel wanted to send the newest Spider-Man — the London-born actor Tom Holland — to high school so he could better understand his role as the teen Peter Parker.

The Bronx High School of Science is not a common high school. It is consistently ranked as one of the top high schools in the United States, and students must score highly on a competitive New York City-wide exam to gain entry.

Marvel wanted Holland to shadow a student who was pursuing a STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — curriculum similar to what Parker would be studying, and Bishop quickly emerged as a prime candidate.

At the beginning of February 2016, Holland arrived at Bronx Science. Holland went undercover. He used an American accent and introduced himself as Bishop’s cousin Ben. Any questions about how he got into the school would be explained away by saying his father was in the military and recently was stationed in New York.

With a backpack in tow, the actor sat in on Advanced Placement physics; linear algebra and differential equations; experimental engineering; AP calculus AB; AP English literature; and AP microeconomics. Holland said he enjoyed the classes.

After their first day together, Bishop said the actor was very easy to talk to and that it got to the point where he just felt like he was talking to another friend.

By the second day, the thrill of being undercover was wearing off, and Holland was starting to experience boredom. To pass the time, he tried to convince some people that he was Spider-Man. It wasn’t that easy, though.

“Most of them wouldn’t believe him at all. Because that just doesn’t make sense, right?” Bishop told Business Insider.

During their lunch period, Holland asked students questions about Marvel, and Bishop filmed the interaction on Holland’s phone.

“He’d ask them: ‘Do you watch Marvel Movies? Who’s your favorite superhero? What do you think of the new Spider-Man actor’?” Bishop said. “It was crazy; nobody recognized him.”

Bishop and Holland did manage to convince one group of girls that Holland was Spider-Man by showing them his ID and having them look him up on their phones. When the girls realized a celebrity was in their midst, they “went a little crazy,” Bishop said.

At the end of Holland’s two days’ undercover, the pair parted ways. Holland left to film the Spider-Man movie and Bishop is now a rising sophomore at the University of Michigan. (SD-Agencies)
