He has been part of a few acting projects that have brought him recognition in the industry. This has, to some extent, helped him come out of the shadow of his father and brother and to establish himself as an individual actor. However it cannot be denied that Tom has helped Patrick a lot to grow in his acting career. Patrick has worked in a short film directed by Tom. He often accompanies his brother to public events. This has helped him come under the media spotlight. Tom appreciates Patrick's endeavor to make it big in the industry and also considers him appropriate for a role as significant as that of ‘Spider-Man.’ However, this upcoming, young actor still has a long way to go.
