Actor Profile: Andrew Garfield
Date of Birth: August 20th, 1983
Best film role: Boy A
Worst film role: Lions for Lambs
Despite already having garnered a Golden Globe nomination, Garfield is showing no signs of letting up. 2012 will see him in his biggest and most prominent role to date – as Peter Parker in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man. Taking over the web slingers from Tobey Maguire, Garfield will have a job on his hands to outperform his predecessor, who was praised for his performance in Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man trilogy.
His cause has been helped by eye-catching turns in both the Oscar-winning The Social Network and British drama Never Let Me Go, the former earning Garfield a Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations for Best Supporting Actor. Despite giving a truly memorable performance as the main protagonist in Boy A, it was a supporting role in Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus that propelled him into the spotlight.
Roles in Never Let Me Go and The Social Network followed, both of which contributed to his casting of Peter Parker in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man movie, where he can be seen opposite a talented cast featuring Emma Stone, Martin Sheen and Rhys Ifans. To go alongside his on-screen talents, Garfield can also be seen next year on the stage, where he will be starring as Bill Loffman in Death of a Salesman. Garfield already has theatrical credits to his name after starring in plays such as Kes and as Romeo in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
