The British actor and his co-star Jacob Batalon, who plays his best friend Ned Leeds, visited Singapore last month to promote his new film. While they were in The Lion City, the actors also visited KK Woman’s and Children’s Hospital.
In the series of photos, Holland can be seen wearing his Spider-Man costume, giving presents to patients. “Tom charmed patients and families with his visit and the autographed toys presented to the kids. A big Thank You to Tom and Jacob, for the awesome experience and for bringing cheer to the wards!” wrote the hospital.
In an interview with Channel NewsAsia, Holland said that visiting the hospital was important to me. “It really does cheer up these kids. We met this one kid yesterday with his Spider-Man pyjamas on and he was the highlight of my trip! It was so lovely to meet him and he was so excited. We gave him a little Spider-Man doll,” he said.
The 21-year-old actor also added that he will try his best to bring happiness to people all around the world. He continued, “And I think one of the most important places to do that is in a children’s hospital, especially being Spider-Man. It really is a film for them and if we are able to do that then I’ll continue to do so.”
