Harrison Osterfield is a British actor who is better known as a close friend of Tom Holland of 'Spider-Man' fame. He became Tom’s personal assistant during the filming of the 2017 film 'Spider-Man: Homecoming.' Harrison began his acting career with short films and later appeared in brief roles in a few Hollywood films. An alumnus of 'The BRIT School' and the 'London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art,' Harrison has been part of several popular plays. He has worked with various theater companies such as 'Dalmation Theatre Company,' 'Jolly Green Moment,' and 'Bullfrog Productions.' Harrison also owns a 'YouTube' channel.
While in school, Harrison actively participated in school plays. While studying at 'The BRIT School,' he played the famous character 'Ferdinand' from Shakespeare's 'The Tempest.' Harrison also acted in a few more plays such as 'Our Country’s Good' and 'This is Hamilin.' He then joined the 'London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.' There, he appeared in plays such as 'Punk Rock,' 'Three Sisters,' 'Icarus,' and 'Much Ado about Nothing.' In 2013, Harrison attended 'The X Factor Live' at the 'O2' arena in London.
Harrison made his acting debut in 2014, with the short film 'Trepidation.' Following this, he appeared in many short films and was cast in the lead role in a few of them. He played ‘Edward Lucas’ in the 2015 short film 'Supply and Demand.' He played ‘Ethan,’ the titular character, in 'Ethan Adler’s Guide to Homicide' and ‘Spooner’ in 'One in a Million.' Following this, he played ‘Parker’ in the 2018 short 'Vent.'
Harrison stepped into the world of mainstream Hollywood movies because of his friend and famed ‘Spider-Man’ actor Tom Holland. Like Harrison, Tom, too, is an alumnus of 'The BRIT School.' When Tom bagged the lead role in the 2017 'Spider-Man' movie 'Spider-Man: Homecoming,' he wished to have Harrison as his personal assistant and suggested his name. Tom also expressed his wish to have Harrison play the character of 'Johnny Storm' (aka the 'Human Torch' and friend of 'Peter Parker') from 'Marvel’s' 'Strange Tales #120.' He believed that his real-life friendship with Harrison could contribute to the on-screen chemistry between 'Peter Parker' and 'Johnny Storm.'
Harrison was next seen in a brief role of a bus passenger in the 2018 fantasy flick 'Avengers: Infinity War.' He was roped in to play ‘Farnbranch Man’ in the upcoming American science-fiction film 'Chaos Walking,' which is scheduled to release in 2019. He will also be seen in the upcoming American–British–Italian drama miniseries 'Catch-22,' directed by George Clooney. The series will feature Harrison as ‘Snowden.’ Rumors claim that he has been cast alongside Tom in the 2019 movie 'Spider-Man: Far From Home.'
Harrison has a 'YouTube' channel that he created on October 14, 2017. The channel has only two videos and a little over 18 thousand subscribers. The video in which Harrison is seen cutting hot bread and making pancakes is the more popular of the two. Personal Life
