The British show ''The Feelgood Factor'' once featured three child stars from ''Billy Elliot'' in the West End, and one of them was a then-12-year-old Tom Holland. The TV show then had Holland work with a group of schoolboys, and they later performed a version of the ''Angry Dance'' from the musical. As an adult, Holland told People magazine: ''I had my rough patches. There were times I was bullied about dancing and stuff. But you couldn't hit me hard enough to stop me from doing it." And he got the last laugh. Holland says his physical agility as a dancer & gymnast is what landed him the marvelous movie role of Spider-Man.
