How Tom Holland Eclipsed his Dad

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Story of how a kid dances his way from London's West End all the way to Hollywood and eclipses his 'celebrity' dad along the way. Written with great affection by a dad as proud as he is bemused and unsurprisingly so, since all of this happened by complete fluke. No planning. No drama lessons let alone drama-school. And all against a dad's best efforts at becoming famous himself. Now that is funny.

About Dominic Holland

I have been a professional stand up comedian for over 20 years, working mainly in the UK but I have gigged all over the world. I have published two novels but the rights have since reverted to me. I have published many short stories and had columns published in various newspapers and on-line sites. I am married with four boys. My eldest son, Tom Holland is an actor. He played Billy in Billy Elliot the Musical in London's west end. He will appear as Lucas in the forthcoming feature film, The Impossible and as Isaac in the film, How I Live Now. Tom's success has spawned a blog and a book called Eclipsed - a story about a dad being eclipsed by his son in show business. Affectionately written by a dad who is bemused as he is proud.
I plan to publish Eclipsed as an ebook in early 2013. I have written a new novel called A Man's Life which I also plan to publish as an ebook and make my backlist and possibly other unpublished novels available also.


How Tom Holland Eclipsed his Dad
every author claims that their book is unique, meincluded. Only, I can make this claim with some confidence. I have been trying to write a movie for 20 years. My son now makes movies. He is about to start filming with Ron Howard. This all happened by fluke. No drama lessons. Just right place, right time. This book explains how this happened, written by a proud and equally bemused dad.

A most enjoyable and humourous insight into the lives of Dominic and his family. The pride and love he feels for his sons is shown throughout the book. Well worth a read.
