In the latest issue of Closer, Andrew Garfield evokes with emotion the death of his mother, in 2019, following pancreatic cancer.
At the time, the interpreter of the “amazing” Spider-Man was preparing to start filming the biopic In the eyes of Tammy Faye , alongside Jessica Chastain, and remembers having set a condition before even signing: “I remember saying to the producers: ‘If I get the call to go home, I go home and I don’t care what it costs the production.’, confides l ‘actor. When my father called me, they stopped production for ten days, then two weeks. And I stayed with my mother for the last ten days of her life.”
“These were the ten best days of my life”
If saying goodbye to the one who “ transmitted to him the taste for nature and poetry ” was one of the most difficult tests of his life, Andrew Garfield keeps , paradoxically, a precious memory of his last days with her. “Those were the best ten days of my life because, for me, it was a real privilege to be with her until her death.” A privilege that gave him wings. Shortly after the death of his mother, Andrew Garfield shot the musical Tick, Tick… Boom, which earned him a second Oscar nomination two years later. .
