Andrew Russell Garfield (born 20 August 1983) is an American-English actor. Born in Los Angeles, California and raised in Epsom, Surrey, Garfield began his career on the UK stage and in television productions. He made his feature film debut in the 2007 ensemble drama Lions for Lambs. Garfield first came to international attention in 2010 with supporting roles in the drama films The Social Network, for which he was highly praised and received Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations, and Never Let Me Go, for which he received a Saturn Award and a BAFTA nomination.
His performance as Spider-Man/Peter Parker in the superhero film The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), a reboot of the Spider-Man film series, was well received. Garfield reprised his role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which was released in 2014. He has also performed on stage, and played Biff in the 2012 Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, co-starring Philip Seymour Hoffman. Garfield's performance earned him a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Play. Garfield also stars in 99 Homes, a film he produced, and Martin Scorsese's Silence.
Garfield has dual citizenship in the United States and the United Kingdom. In 2009, he told the Sunday Herald that he "feels equally at home" in both the United States and the United Kingdom and "enjoys having a varied cultural existence". Garfield customarily gives interviews about his work, but does not publicly discuss details of his private life.
Garfield began dating his The Amazing Spider-Man co-star Emma Stone sometime during production of the film. After Stone was cast in The Amazing Spider-Man, which was confirmed in October 2010, Marc Webb, the film's director, noted that the chemistry between Garfield and Stone made her the clear choice.
In 2011, Garfield became the Ambassador of Sport for the Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO).
In April 2013, Garfield publicly expressed his support for the legalisation of same-sex marriage. Garfield, who was reflecting on starring in the gay marriage-themed play Beautiful Thing (2006), commented: "There is no argument against equality. How can anyone argue against compassion and understanding?"
