Andrew Garfield says playing 'Spider-Man' was a childhood dream
Word is starting to get out that Andrew Garfield has wanted to play "Spider-Man" since he was…4-years-old. The Brit spoke about his love for the Web Slinger, which he'll play in Marc Webb's upcoming reboot, to a number of journalists while doing press for his new drama "Never Let Me Go" during the 2010 Toronto Film Festival.
According to HollywoodNews.com, Garfield said, “I’m honestly treating it like this is a role that has meant a lot to me since I was four years old. And I have been waiting for the call since then to be given the opportunity to play with a bunch of awesome cameras and effects and to feel like I’m swinging through New York City. It’s a childhood fantasy come to life. But I’m just treating it like an extension of my seven-year-old self jumping for joy and climbing up doorframes. I’m just going to play to like I always have played it in my living room! It’s just an extension of that, with a bigger set, a bit more money, and a better costume. Although my mum’s homemade costume was pretty wicked.”
