Biography

Andrew Garfield rose from relative obscurity to the Hollywood forefront after he was picked to play Peter Parker for a reboot of the blockbuster "Spider-Man" franchise. The theater-trained actor captivated British audiences, playing an ex-convict who served time for a juvenile crime in the made-for-TV movie "Boy A" (Channel 4, 2007), and in the dystopian drama "Never Let Me Go" (2010), opposite Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan. Garfield gave strong supporting performances alongside such legendary actors as Robert Redford and Meryl Streep in "Lions for Lambs" (2007), and honed his craft under the direction of visionary filmmakers David Fincher and Terry Gilliam. Garfield proved to be Hollywood's best-kept secret when he was announced as Tobey Maguire's heir to the Spidey suit for a 2010 film. The coveted role came with considerable pressure and scrutiny, yet Garfield handled his task with the conviction and talent of a more seasoned actor.
