ANDREW GARFIELD (PETER PARKER / SPIDER-MAN)
Andrew Russell Garfield (born 20 August 1983) is an American-English actor. He began his career in British television, appearing in the teen drama Sugar Rush in 2005, and gained further exposure appearing in the BBC’s Doctor Who in 2007. His early film roles include Lions for Lambs, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, and the Channel 4 drama Boy A, which garnered him the 2008 BAFTA Television Award for Best Actor. Garfield achieved wider recognition and critical acclaim for his role as Eduardo Saverin in the 2010 film The Social Network, a role which earned him Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations. Garfield is a dual citizen of the United States and the United Kingdom. He will portray the title character in the 2012 superhero film The Amazing Spider-Man, a reboot of the Spider-Man film series.
Garfield explained that he felt tremendous pressure in taking on the role of Peter Parker because the character is so beloved by comic fans around the world.
“I think the hardest thing for me was when it came to the story, you know? When it came to the story of Peter Parker and wanting to do that justice,” the actor said, reports Flicks and Bits. “To make sure that all of the themes and the characteristics of the guy, and the struggles that he goes through were portrayed in a way that were honored and powerful.”
He added: “Also, injecting it with lightness as well, that was another thing that I really cared about with Peter Parker/Spider-Man, the humor – all the things that are there with Peter Parker, I wanted to achieve that. That was the biggest challenge.”
Garfield went on to explain that he loved the “physicality” that the role demanded.
Garfield previously expressed hopes that Spider-Man will appear in the upcoming Avengers sequel. Amazing Spider-Man producer Avi Arad has since hinted that a crossover is possible.
The Amazing Spider-Man opens in cinemas on July 3.
