ACTING AND FOOTBALL WERE BACKUP PLANS FOR HOLMES

Holmes' passion for acting began when he was 11 years old. However, his mom felt he was throwing his life away by pursuing a career in acting. Thus, she encouraged him to study nursing, which he reluctantly agreed to. 

During an interview with "The Nervous Breakdown," Holmes also revealed that he would have been a professional footballer if he did not choose acting as a career, as he was good with the sport and had all the attributes to succeed in it.

SMALL FOLLOWERSHIP BASE ON INSTAGRAM

Holmes is active on Instagram, but unlike many of his colleagues, he does not have a large fanbase following him on the social media channel. Presently, Holmes has about 18,200 followers on Instagram and follows over 2,700 people. There, he shares some of his memorable moments with his loyal fans.

The 46-year-old said he enjoyed acting with [Matt] Damon, who he described as a real family man and focused professional.

One such moment came in July when he celebrated winning a Leo Award for his performance in the web series, "Hospital Show" with his fans, appreciating everyone who played a hand in its success.
