Uncharted: Tom Holland regrets portrayal of Nathan Drake

Uncharted: Tom Holland regrets portrayal of Nathan Drake

Uncharted

On February 11, 2022 we should see the film adaptation of Naughty Dog's popular game series Uncharted in the cinema. Actor Tom Holland slips into the role of the adventurer Nathan Drake, whom we know as Peter Parker / Spider-Man from the last films in the comic series. But Holland is dissatisfied with his portrayal of Nathan Drake.

Nathan Drake had to look cool

In an interview with GQ, the actor explains: "As soon as you start to think about it" Do I look good in this shot? ', Acting becomes something other than playing a character. I think there are elements of my performance in Uncharted where I kind of fall under the spell of' I want to look good now. I want to, I guess this is my cool moment. I had to play this very tough, very stoic guy - basically I had to be Mark Wahlberg. My character was supposed to be a fucking action hero right now! Look, I don't have the movie seen so I don't know if I succeeded, but it was an important lesson that I learned because sometimes it was less about getting that scene right, and more about seeing my bulging biceps. .. That was a mistake and is something I will probably never do again. "

We will see exactly how this affects the film. But we will probably get a Nathan Drake who has to look cool and is shown in special, iconic poses in certain scenes. We will only be able to judge whether the portrayal of the character or the film itself suffers when it starts in cinemas in February 2022.

Uncharted movie star Tom Holland has admitted that while he hasn't seen the finished movie yet, he's a tad troubled about his portrayal of one of gaming's biggest icons, Nathan Drake. 


In a frank interview, Holland acknowledged that 'there are elements of my performance in Uncharted where I kind of fell under that spell of being ‘I want to look good now' rather than 'playing a character'.


“As soon as you start worrying about ‘Do I look good in this shot?’ acting becomes something other than playing a character,' Holland told GQ. 'I think there are elements of my performance in Uncharted where I kind of fell under that spell of being ‘I want to look good now. I want this to be my cool moment'.


'I had to play this very tough, very stoic guy – basically be Mark Wahlberg. My character is supposed to be a f--king action hero in this moment! Look, I haven’t seen it, so I don’t know if I succeeded in that. But it was an important lesson learned, because, at times, it was less about land a mark and go through this scene and more about land a mark, stand like this and see my bulging biceps... It was a mistake and is something that I will probably never do again.'


The long-awaited action-adventure film will serve as a backstory for Nathan Drake, the protagonist of the video games of the same name.


Tom Holland stars as fortune hunter Nathan Drake, while Mark Wahlberg is Victor “Sully” Sullivan, Nathan’s future mentor. The supporting cast includes Antonio Banderas, Grey’s Anatomy’s Sophia Taylor Ali, and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s Tati Gabrielle. It wrapped filming in October. 


The perpetually unlucky Uncharted movie was delayed due to the spread of coronavirus last year, with executives halting pre-production – originally 'for at least six weeks' – because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Venom's Ruben Fleischer was the seventh (and thankfully final) director tied to the film, which is due to hit the big screen in 2022.


Holland openly praised the Uncharted movie script, calling it 'one of the best scripts [he's] ever read.' It was written by Hollywood duo Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, who wrote Iron Man, Transformers: The Last Knight, and Men In Black: International together.
