Marc Webb Felt Andrew Garfield Was Being Taken Over By A Spider

Method acting is the term used when actors create in themselves the thoughts and emotions of the character they are playing. But does Andrew Garfield think of himself as a method actor in The Amazing Spider-Man. Make the jump to find out.



The star of next month's The Amazing Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield, has earned the praise of director Marc Webb. Speaking from the British premiere of the movie, Webb commended Garfield on his acting and committment:
“He was so committed to the physical dimension of the character, like he really was focused on feeling like a spider was taking over him and keeping that DNA alive and every time I would see him, his elbow would be moving a certain way and he was embodying the, like he really was, it felt like he was being taken over by a spider — and when he got in the suit it really paid a lot of dividends."

Although, Garfield does seem to have a different opinion:
“I don’t know what that word means, but I definitely was dedicated to it and wanted to make sure that we did our job as well as possible and made sure that the character is served in the way that it should be."

Emma Stone, who co-stars as love-interest Gwen Stacey, said it is Garfield's love for the character of Spider-Man that influences his committment: "His dedication and protection of the character totally apparent throughout the movie."

Playing the role of Peter Parker's aunt and uncle in the film is Sally Field and Martin Sheen and Garfield payed tribute to both:
"They're incredible, they're just fine actors, and people who live well and live purely and with love, and that's very inspiring 'cause you know it's rare that you find someone who's not only a fantastic actor but a fantastically beautiful person," Garfield says, noting he took "more life advice than acting advice" from them.
