Andrew Garfield Was A Child Movie Maker



British actor Andrew Garfield has been in the movie industry since he was a child. Reportedly, he was making amateur films at the family home. His father was helping him as he served as director.

The Spider-Man actor has also revealed that his love of acting started in his school years when his father used to film him and his brother with a bulky video camera.

He told The Observer Magazine,

“My dad had this awesome old VHS on-the-shoulder camera that he was very proud of. We made a boxing movie once, which was really good fun. Dad was a good director, actually, very nurturing and good to his actors. The films usually ended up with me crying, though, because my brother accidentally on purpose hit me too hard.”

In 2011, Garfield became the Ambassador of Sport for the Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO).

In 2013, Garfield publicly expressed support for the legalisation of same-sex marriage. He was reflecting on starring in the gay marriage-themed play Beautiful Thing in 2006, commented, “There is no argument against equality. How can anyone argue against compassion and understanding?”

Garfield first came to international attention in 2010 with a supporting role in the drama film The Social Network, for which he received Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations.

His performance as Spider-Man/Peter Parker in the superhero film The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012, a reboot of the Spider-Man film series, was well received. He is set to reprise his role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, scheduled for release in 2014.
