ANDREW GARFIELD is an Academy Award-nominated actor who captivates global audiences with his transformative performances spanning feature films and notable theatre productions. He continues to evolve his body of work in powerful roles and compelling narratives. He was recently seen on stage once again in the National Theatre's production of Angels in America directed by Tony Award-winning Marianne Elliott. He played Prior Walter, alongside Denise Gough, Nathan Lane, James McArdle and Russell Tovey. This fall, Garfield starred in Andy Serkis' drama Breathe, based on the true story of the handsome, brilliant and adventurous Robin Cavendish (Garfield). Said to only have three months to live after being diagnosed with polio at the age of 28, Robin became a medical miracle and a champion for the disabled as he defied the odds stacked against him and lived until the age of 64. Co-starring Claire Foy, Tom Hollander and Hugh Bonneville, the film, distributed by Bleecker Street and Participant Media, opened in limited release on October 13th. Garfield will soon be seen as the star of the modern noir crime thriller Under the Silver Lake. Set in the underbelly of Silver Lake, California, the film follows an eccentric man who becomes obsessed with the disappearance of his neighbor and the murder of another man. The film is written and directed by David Robert Mitchell and will be distributed by A24 in 2018. In 2016, Garfield appeared on the big screen in Mel Gibson's Academy Award-nominated World War II epic, Hacksaw Ridge. Based on a true story, Garfield plays U.S. Army medic Desmond T. Doss, who was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Truman for single-handedly saving the lives of over 75 of his comrades while simultaneously under constant enemy fire during the brutal Battle of Okinawa. The film, which co-starred Vince Vaughn, Hugo Weaving, Brenda Griffiths and Teresa Palmer, was released by Lionsgate on November 4th, 2016. Garfield's critically acclaimed performance earned him lead actor nominations at the Academy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards and BAFTA Awards. Garfield also starred in Martin Scorsese's adaptation of the literary classic Silence, distributed by Paramount Pictures. The film tells a story of young 17th-century Jesuit missionaries who were persecuted during their search for a priest who had forsaken his faith. The film also starred Liam Neeson and Adam Driver. Additional film credits include: Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which combined grossed over 1.5 billion at the box-office; Ramin Bahrani's 99 Homes opposite Michael Shannon and Laura Dern; David Fincher's The Social Network, for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor; Mark Romanek's Never Let Me Go opposite Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan; Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus; Spike Jonze's robot love story I'm Here; Robert Redford's Lions For Lambs; Julian Jarrold's Red Riding Trilogy - 1974; and John Crowley's Boy A, for which he earned BAFTA's Best Actor Award in 2008. Garfield made his Broadway debut in 2012 in the revival of Arthur Miller's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Death Of A Salesman, opposite Phillip Seymour-Hoffman and directed by Mike Nichols. His portrayal of Biff Loman earned him a Tony nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Play.
