In 2007 Andrew Garfield was named one of Variety Magazine’s 10 Actors to Watch. Four years later it seems that all eyes are indeed watching as the 28-year-old British-American actor will be the new face of Spiderman this summer!

Andrew was born in Los Angeles and moved to Surrey when he was a child.  He began acting at the age of 15 and won a BAFTA for Best Actor in 2008 for his role in Boy A.

However for his newest project, Andrew will be playing the role of Spider-man’s Peter Parker opposite Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy in the still untitled action flick, which will be released 4th July 2012.  The new movie, which began filming in December, will focus on the origins of Peter Parker.  Of the role, Andrew says, “I am excited like a child is excited.  I feel honoured, because it is part of a legacy that has meant a great deal to me and other skinny boys.”

We’ve already become entangled in Andrew, and can’t wait to see the future web-slinger don the Spiderman costume.
