I first fell in love with him when I saw The Impossible. Tom played the role of Lucas. After I watched the film, I lost sight of Tom for quite a while. Beïng the Marvel-fan I am, I soon heard Tom would be portraying Peter Parker/Spiderman in the upcoming Spiderman film. He would have a small role in Captain America: Civil War. The moment I read his name, I fell in love with him again.
