During a public discussion over his upcoming role in Angels in America, The Amazing Spiderman star Andrew Garfield says he won’t rule out a same-sex relationship in the future.
“As far as I know, I am not a gay man,” Gay Times reports. “Maybe I’ll have an awakening later in my life, which I’m sure will be wonderful and I’ll get to explore that part of the garden, but right now I’m secluded to my area, which is wonderful as well. I adore it, but a big concern was what right do I have to play this wonderful gay role?”
According to Garfield, who co-stars in the upcoming production of Angels in America at National Theatre, London with Russell Tovey, he’s a gay man in every way but one.
“My only time off during rehearsals – every Sunday I would have eight friends over and we would just watch Ru. This is my life outside of this play. I am a gay man right now just without the physical act – that’s all.”
Andrew Garfield portrays Prior in the upcoming production of Angels in America, which has spawned numerous plays and an HBO mini-series. Garfield will star alongside Russell Tovey as Joe, Denise Gough as Harper, James McArdle as Louis Ironson, and Nathan Lane as Roy Cohn.
At the same public discussion, Garfield shared his pride for the show along with his challenging, yet rewarding experiences while working on the production.
“It’s the most costly thing on the body and on the soul we’ve ever done personally… and I will say it’s the most fulfilling creative experience I’ll ever hope to have.
“I don’t think it can get better than this in terms of everything. Communion with the audience – us all going through the same things together and how prevalent and how necessary it is to tell this story right now.”
