Have you ever imagined being able to control what you are dreaming of? Although for the rest of the people it is almost impossible, for Tom Holland it’s simpleand more than a ‘superpower’ it is a trick that he has practiced for a long time.

During his presence on the Spanish program “El hormiguero”, the actor was asked if he knew how to master dreams, to which he enthusiastically replied: “Yes. This is what is called cognitive sleep.. He immediately unveiled the technique recommended by Jon Watts, director of the “Spider-Man” saga, in order to trick the brain.

“Basically what you do is you set an alarm for each hour of the day and when the alarm goes off, you look at a point, read it, look away, look back, and read it again. You do that every hour of every day for days and days. Basically that is what it is for; it’s for you to start doing the same thing in your sleep, and because the brain works so fast when you’re dreaming, when you read it, look away and look back, it’s changed. Then you realize that you are sleeping and you can do what you want”he specified.

After listening carefully, the driver Pablo Motos tells him that he actually has a ‘superpower’, which he will also put into practice, so he asks how long he should do it to get his brain used to it.

In a humorous tone, Tom Holland, who presented his new leading role in the film “Uncharted” on the Antena 3 program, tells you: “Every hour of the day for seven years” and laughs indicating that it is a joke.


But Tom Holland spoke more about the subject of sleep and revealed that he is a sleepwalker, although this happens to him when he is very tired, especially when he has marathon shooting days; although he acknowledges that he is rarely fully rested, so his ‘sleep me’ helps him relax.

“Normally it happens to me towards the end of a shoot, when I’m already exhausted. What usually happens is that I wake up and fill the bathtub, but then I don’t get in it “begins narrating.

In the morning, when the alarm clock rings, he sees the bathroom full of hot water, but he does not remember anything, therefore, he deduces that at some point he got up, filled the bathtub and went to sleep, says the actor who now gives life to Nathan Drake in “Uncharted”, a film in which he has been hit by a car up to 17 times.
