Garfield “Gets Off” On Roles
In an interview with Movie City News, the 27 year old actor explained that by taking on diverse roles he avoids getting bored with his work. So far he has starred in an eclectic range of films stretching from The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, The Social Network and now the lead in Marc Webb’s revamped Spider-Man.
The actor said: “I think I’d probably be lying if I said I don’t get off on exploring something that’s very different to my comfort zone, or something that I’m bored of in myself.”
He continued: “I think that’s definitely a part of what excites me about acting – accessing parts of yourself that you’re too afraid to access in your actual life, where that will have repercussions.”
Commenting on his approach to roles he said: “I just think predominantly it’s difficult to find scripts and stories that are actually of worth and depth.
“I just consider myself very lucky in that I’ve managed to stumble into being a small cog in a beautiful machine for the very few movies that I’ve done. I appreciate each one equally.”
