For the first time, Andrew Garfield attempted method acting in Martin Scorsese’s Silence, which was released in 2016. For the role of a Jesuit missionary in the movie, Andrew fasted until he started to lose weight and kept a celibate lifestyle for six months, among other things. In a current interview, the actor also discussed his working process.
In two Amazing Spider-Man films and the 2017 film Spider-Man: No Way Home, Andrew is best known for his portrayal of Spider-Man (also known as Peter Parker). Additionally, he appeared in the films Tick, Tick… Boom!, Hacksaw Ridge, and The Social Network. He collaborated with Martin Scorsese for the first time on Silence, which many critics believe was the first part that established him as a “real actor.”
In order to get into character for the movie, Andrew recently admitted on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast that he would go without food and sex for extended periods of time. “”At that time, when I was going without sex and food, I had some really insane, bizarre things happen to me,” he recalled. “Man, it was really fantastic.”
Also claiming that method acting is frequently misinterpreted, the actor made an effort to explain why. The reason why people continue to behave in such a nasty manner is unknown. Being kind to the cast and crew while also acting honestly in made-up scenarios is basically all that is required. Additionally, it’s about being a regular person who can let go of it when necessary and hold onto it when desired “explained he.
In the historical drama Silence, Tadanobu Asano, Adam Driver, Liam Neeson, and Ciarán Hinds also starred. In order to find their missing mentor and preach Catholicism, two Jesuit priests go from Portugal to Edo-era Japan through Macau in the seventeenth century.
