Andrew Garfield stars in "The Amazing Spider-Man" as Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

Andrew Garfield is a BAFTA-winning actor and a Golden Globe nominee for his work in David Fincher's "The Social Network" about the founding of Facebook. Garfield is currently making his Broadway debut in the revival of Arthur Miller's Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Death of a Salesman," directed by Mike Nichols. Garfield plays Willy Loman's underachieving son, Biff.

Garfield was born in Los Angeles to Anglo-American parents and was brought up in Surrey, England. He graduated from London's Central School of Speech and Drama in 2004.

His career began in theater and in 2006 his performances in "Beautiful Thing" (Sound Space/Kit Productions), "The Overwhelming" and "Burn, Chatroom, and Citizenship" (Royal National Theatre) won him the award for Outstanding Newcomer at the Evening Standard Awards, and the Jack Tinker Award for Most Promising Newcomer at the Critics Circle Awards. Other notable theater credits include "Romeo and Juliet" (Manchester Royal Exchange) and "Kes" (Manchester Royal Exchange), for which he received the Most Promising Newcomer Award at the Manchester Evening News Awards 2004.

He was cast by director Robert Redford to play opposite him as a disillusioned Californian university student in "Lions for Lambs," which also starred Tom Cruise and Meryl Streep. This resulted in him being named as a Shooting Star by the European Film Promotion Board and one of Variety's "10 Actors to Watch." His acclaimed performance in the title role of John Crowley's film for Channel Four, "Boy A," about the attempt to rehabilitate a childhood killer, saw him winning the 2008 BAFTA Award as Best Actor.

Since somersaulting on from Terry Gilliam's theater troupe in "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" as Anton, Andrew has played the lead role in Revolution Films' "Red Riding Trilogy - 1974," directed by Julian Jarrold and adapted from David Peace's "Red Riding" novels, and has co-starred in Mark Romanek's "Never Let Me Go," opposite Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan, and Spike Jonze's robot love story "I'm Here."
