Actors are auditioning for roles constantly. It’s part of the job. And it’s always fun to hear about which roles certain actors auditioned for in the past and failed miserably.
Tom Holland has a few stories like that of his own. He recently revealed that he actually auditioned for the role of Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and he really didn’t do very well because he couldn’t stop laughing.
Tom Holland botched his Star Wars: The Force Awakens audition
Here’s what Tom Holland revealed about his terrible Star Wars: The Force Awakens audition for Finn:
I’ve had quite a few. I’ve read the wrong lines at the wrong audition before. I remember my audition for “Star Wars,” I was like four or five auditions in, and I think I was auditioning for John Boyega’s role. I remember doing this scene with this lady, bless her, and she was just a drone. So I was doing all of this, like, “We gotta get back to the ship!” And she was going, “Bleep, bloop bloop, bleep bloop.” I just couldn’t stop laughing. I found it so funny. And I felt really bad, because she was trying really hard to be a convincing android or drone or whatever they’re called. Yeah, I obviously didn’t get the part. That wasn’t my best moment.
