Looking cool as Spider-Man is one thing–Peter Parker is a dork, and the CGI does a lot of the work for Spidey in costume. But with a character like Nathan Drake, most of that responsibility falls on the actor. Tom Holland plays Drake in the upcoming Uncharted film, and talked in a new interview with GQ about getting distracted by his own coolness.
“As soon as you start worrying about ‘Do I look good in this shot?’ acting becomes something other than playing a character,” Holland explained. “I think there are elements of my performance in Uncharted where I kind of fell under that spell of being ‘I want to look good now. I want this to be my cool moment.’ I had to play this very tough, very stoic guy–basically, be Mark Wahlberg.”
Holland admitted, however, that he hasn’t yet seen the finished film, leaving what the lens captured up to our imaginations for the time being.
