I was today years old when I learned that Emmy Rossum plays Tom Holland’s mom.
Apparently, they are both stars The People’s Room, a new Apple TV+ limited series drama executive produced by Tom Holland. Tom stars as Danny Sullivan, “a man who was arrested after being involved in a shooting in New York City in 1979.” Emmy will play his young mother, Candy.
But, the No shame the actor is only 36 years old.
And Tom just turned 27 a few days ago.
This means that they have less than 10 years between the two of them. And although it looks a little unbelievable on paper – Emmy was not fooled at all by the incredible age gap.
In an interview with Entertainment tonight, Emmy opened up about playing Tom’s “super young” mother. “It made sense when I read the script,” she said. “Candy is a very young mother, she’s almost a child on her own when she gets pregnant at the age of 16. You look like I’m between 25 and 35, which is younger than I am now.”
Emmy didn’t focus on the small age gap because she “fell in love with the relationship between mother and son and how close they all grieve in later episodes.”
She especially loved a scene with Zachary Golinger, who plays a younger version of Tom’s character. “Our relationship was so beautiful, so I knew everything we had that I had lost in the scenes with Tom. [It] it was really fun,” she said.
It will be interesting to see how this dynamic plays out. The 10-episode limited series will be released on June 9, 2023.
