Another Filipino pride just made his breakthrough movie debut in Hollywood, and his co-actor Tom Holland has lots of great things to say about him!
Jacob Batalon, who plays Peter Parker's best friend Ned in the new Spider-Man movie, described his character in the film as "very sweet, genuine, and nerdy"! Even though it's his first time to star in a major motion picture, Tom Holland thinks having the Fil-Am actor on board is nothing short of awesome!
“Since day one, Jacob and I hit it off immediately. Director Jon Watts sent us off on some tasks to sort of start bonding, but we didn’t really need to do that. We were already really good friends and we just gelled, and it’s exactly what happens in the movie,” Holland said in a press release.
The newest Spider-Man actor also shared how significant Ned and Peter Parker's relationship are in the film. “The relationship between Peter and Ned is probably the most important relationship in the movie because Ned is the only person who Peter confides in and talks to about being Spider-Man,” he said. “Tony Stark and Happy Hogan seem a little distant, so Ned is almost like a shrink that he can just really let it out to.”
