It's not every day that a million dollars randomly shows up in your account.

But The White Lotus star Tom Hollander has revealed this happened to him when he received a paycheck intended for Spiderman actor Tom Holland.

“It was very difficult because you know I was here first, but he is enormously famous,” he added jokingly.

Explaining how he discovered the accidental payment, Hollander said he was watching a friend in the theater get paid £300.

“I was sitting smugly in the audience, having just done a BBC show for £30,000 or something that would see me through the next year or so, and thinking, 'Well that's great, I'm very wealthy.' ”
