In the video, Holland talks about his fun birthday.
“Okay, so firstly, it is my birthday. I’ve turned 23. Today was amazing. The boys and I went scuba diving, and it was fantastic. And thank you to all the fans who sent me amazing birthday wishes. It really, really means a lot to me, thank you.”
The actor went on to announce the winner of his contest: Kieran Nelson. Congrats, Kieran!
Many people commented on the actor’s post, including some of his fellow MCU actors.
“Happy birthday you big legend,” Chris Hemsworth wrote.
“Happy birthday to my little brother Tom. You’re the future my friend. Hope you have a blast today!!,” Chris Pratt replied.
“Happy birthday bro,” Tony Revolori added.
The Brothers Trust is run by Holland’s family and “is keen to shine a light on charities who struggle to be heard in the noisy and competitive not-for-profit sector - and charities who can best demonstrate the most effective use of funds to profit the people in need and not on bloated administration.” You can learn more about the organization here.
