On Friday, a day after a pair of Spider-Man: Homecoming trailers were released, Tom Holland participated in a Facebook Live Q&A event to promote his upcoming superhero solo film. The 20-year-old English actor fielded dozens of questions, but one question in particular got him talking about a scary stunt scene that involved his stunt-double being harnessed to a helicopter and being dunked in a lake.
“There was a few things that I could’t do,” Holland said (transcribed by CBN). “There was some time where they dangled, my poor stunt double under a helicopter and dunked him in a lake,” Tom Holland said and then realized what he said and covered his mouth. “Damn it. This is live isn’t it. Damn.
“So at one point Spider-Man ends up in a lake,” he continued. “I’m going to get in so much trouble now. Oh, no. Yeah. I was like, ‘Let me to it. Let me do it.” When I saw him do it and get dunked in the lake, I’m so happy I let him do that one because that was the scariest thing I’ve ever seen. Can you imagine? Flying under a helicopter and being dunked in a lake. I don’t get paid enough for that shit. Sorry! Again. Again. I can’t help it. I’m sorry.”
