Garfield, a British-American actor with a net worth of $16 million, is one of the most successful actors in the world. It’s possible that Garfield’s most well-recognized role is that of Spider-Man in the 2012 picture “The Amazing Spider-Man.” Garfield has received a slew of accolades throughout his acting career, which has included roles in television and film ventures, as well as stage shows.
He was born on August 20th, 1983, in Los Angeles, California, to Andrew Russell Garfield and his wife, Jennifer. Andrew was born in England to an English mother and a Jewish American father, and three years after his birth, his family went to Surrey, England, where he was nurtured alongside an older brother.
He grew up in the town of Epson, which is located not far from the capital city of London. Garfield now considers himself to be Jewish.
In spite of the fact that Garfield had intended to pursue a career in business, he discovered his passion for acting at the age of 16, when he volunteered to take a Theatre Studies class as a favor for a friend. Even though he had taken acting classes since he was nine years old, he had never taken acting seriously until he enrolled in this Theatre Studies course.
As a result of this, he was accepted into the Central School of Speech and Drama at University College London.
Garfield set his sights on a career in theatre after graduating from the Central School of Speech and Drama in 2004, where he studied acting.
Beginning his professional theatre career at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, where he received a number of accolades, he transitioned to television in 2005, where he appeared in the series “Sugar Rush.” In 2007, he earned even more notoriety when he appeared in an episode of the television series “Dr. Who.” This role allowed him to appeal to a broader range of people.
Later the same year, he made his first appearance in an American film, joining the cast of “Lions for Lambs,” which also had Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, and Robert Redford, among others.
He then returned to the world of British film, starring in the drama “Boy A” as a prominent character. Garfield received a great deal of positive feedback as a consequence of this performance from a variety of critics. During the year 2008, Andrew made cameo appearances in films such as “The Other Boleyn Girl” and “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” among others.
He also became a member of the cast of the television series “Red Riding.” In 2010, after acting in the film “Never Let Me Go,” he received yet another round of critical accolades and was awarded the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor.
The next year, Garfield joined the cast of the film “The Social Network.” Despite the fact that he was originally considered for the role of Mark Zuckerberg, he was cast in the role of Eduardo Saverin. His performance drew tremendous applause from the reviewers, with many expressing astonishment that he was not nominated for an Academy Award in that year’s nominations round.
Many critics believe that the release of “The Amazing Spider-Man” in 2012 marked Andrew Garfield’s true breakthrough as an actor. He was cast in the titular character alongside Emma Stone, and the film went on to become a critical and commercial success, grossing over $752 million at the box office and garnering positive critical and audience reception. Following his triumphant comeback to theatre work in that year’s “Death of a Salesman,” Garfield made his Broadway debut in the famous drama by Arthur Miller. In recognition of his contribution to the show, he was nominated for a Tony Award nomination.
Before resuming his previous role in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” Garfield co-produced and performed in the independent film “99 Homes” in 2014. Following the release of this film, a deal was reached between Sony and Marvel to incorporate Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the worst-case scenario for Garfield, this meant that his series was effectively canceled, and Tom Holland was cast in the role of Spider-Man in the following films.
Andrew took a one-year vacation from acting before returning in 2016 to star in Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” and Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge,” both directed by Scorsese. Despite favorable reviews, the first film failed to earn enough money to cover its costs at the box office, whereas “Hacksaw Ridge” was a financial triumph, grossing over $175 million worldwide. This second performance also garnered him a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor for his work in this film.
Following this successful era, Garfield returned to the London stage to appear in the two-part play “Angels in America,” which was written by William Shakespeare. Andrew was recognized for his outstanding performance in a theatrical production once more.
This year has been a rather quiet one for the actor, with his only appearance coming in the film “Breathe.” In the following year, he reprised his earlier role in a Broadway production of “Angels in America,” which earned him a Tony Award for his efforts.
Garfield participated in the neo-noir thriller “Under Silver Lake,” which had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, to close off the year. Following that, it was revealed that Garfield would appear in films such as “Mainstream,” “The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” “Instrumental,” and “Tick, Tick… Boom!” during the next few years.
Andrew began dating Emma Stone in 2011 after meeting her on the production of “The Amazing Spider-Man.” The couple has been together since 2011. They received a great deal of attention from the media over the next few years, and they even bought a house as a result of their relationship.
Garfield and Stone did not officially confirm that they were no longer together until 2015 when reports began to circulate that they had ended their relationship. Andrew’s approach to the media is typified by the fact that he rarely does interviews in which he discusses his personal experiences.
He is, on the other hand, willing to speak with numerous newspapers about his acting ventures in depth.
