Tom Holland Takes BREAK From His Acting Career After Finishing 'The Crowded Room'! Reveals ‘The Show Did Break Me’
Tom Holland has sent ripples of concern in the entertainment industry and his fans as the actor revealed that he is on a year-long break after working on a "difficult" series like "The Crowded Room".  

The 27-year-old actor will be seen playing the role of Danny Sullivan in the Apple TV+ anthology show titled ‘The Crowded Room’ and it explores the true and inspirational stories of people who have struggled and learned to successfully live with mental illness.


Tom Holland pulled off double duty as a producer and actor on the first season of The Crowded Room backing the project just added to the pressure.

"We were exploring certain emotions that I have definitely never experienced before,” Tom Holland continued, “And then on top of that, being a producer, dealing with the day-to-day problems that come with any film set, just added that extra level of pressure. I'm now taking a year off, and that is a result of how difficult this show was," the Uncharted star told entertainment magazine Extra.

Tom Holland has been “no stranger to hard work” and he really enjoyed working on the series. But, the actor admitted that "the show did break me".

"There did come a time where it sort of was like, 'I need to have a break'. I am excited to see how it turns out, and I feel like our hard work wasn't in vain," he added.

‘The Crowded Room’ is a 10-episode limited series about a man who is arrested following his involvement in a New York City shooting in 1979.

The psychological thriller features Holland playing Danny Sullivan, a character based on Billy Mulligan, a man known as The Campus Rapist and the subject of a highly publicised court case in the late 1970s.

The first three episodes of the show will start streaming on Apple TV+ starting June 9 and release an episode a week every Friday after that until July 28.
