Getting inside the mind of a twisted criminal really did a number on Tom Holland.

Holland has opened up about the intense toll the project took on his mental health. Holland plays Danny Sullivan, a character based on serial rapist Billy Milligan.

Holland admits the shoot was “a tough time” in a new interview with Extra. “We were exploring certain emotions that I have definitely never experienced before.

And then on top of that, being a producer, dealing with the day-to-day problems that come with any film set, just added that extra level of pressure.”

While the Spider-Man star is “no stranger to hard work,” he says that “the show did break me. 

There did come a time where I needed a break and disappeared and went to Mexico for a week and had time on a beach and laid low.

I’m now taking a year off, and that is a result of how difficult this show was.”

Holland recently told Entertainment Weekly that playing Danny led to a “bit of a meltdown” in his personal life “unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before.”
