Tom Holland Wishes Naomi Watts a Happy Birthday Using Adorable Throwback

Yesterday was the 51st birthday of Naomi Watts, the actor best known for films such as Mulholland Drive and The Ring who will also be starring in the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel. Back in 2012, Watts also starred in The Impossible, which earned her an Oscar nomination. The historical drama followed a family who got caught in Thailand during the devastating 2004 tsunami, and it happened to feature Tom Holland's first live-action acting role, which he landed at age 16. In honor of Watts' birthday, Holland took to Instagram to share an adorable throwback photo of them together.
