EXCLUDED. Andrew Garfield: his heartbreaking secrets about his mother, whom he watched until his death

In the latest issue of Closer, Andrew Garfield evokes with emotion the death of his mother, in 2019, following pancreatic cancer.

It’s time for confidence, for British-American actor Andrew Garfield. In the latest issue of Closer, available on newsstands this Friday 13 may, the artist of 13 years evokes with emotion what he considers to be “the greatest loss” that he ever lived: the death of his mother in 1024, following pancreatic cancer. Even today, I try to manage it, to understand how to get through it. My mother fought for a year against pancreatic cancer. It was really hard.It was really hard for her.

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. .
