Bollywood News

British actor Andrew Garfield has opened up about his feelings and how his life changed in the last two years. The actor also reflected on the death of his mother, Lynn, from pancreatic cancer in 2019.

Speaking in an interview with GQ magazine, Garfield said, “Like losing my mum, and my psyche being totally rearranged by that. And life taking on a completely different hue and texture and color. And my inner being totally different. Tasting things differently. Hearing. Smell. It’s all different. Nothing’s the same.” The actor previously opened up to Variety about his mother’s death, saying he had only just learned of her diagnosis before he went to North Carolina to shoot the Tammy Faye biopic. Though he was hesitant to leave, his mother encouraged him to go and he told her: “OK, but promise me when it’s time to come home you’ll let me know.”

In late 2019, Garfield went home to England to be by her side. “The good news about me and her is that we left nothing unsaid,” Garfield said. “We had all the quality time we could possibly have while she was here. And those last two weeks I got to be with her were probably the most profound two weeks of my life. To be with her and my dad and my brother, all of her friends, my nephews. It was full of grace in the midst of the terrible tragedy.”

In a recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Garfield gets emotional when talking about the recent loss of his mother, and relates her life to the life of Jonathan Larson, the man he portrays in the new film, Tick, Tick...Boom saying, ”It’s only a beautiful thing. Its all the unexpressed love; the grief that will remain with us. we never get enough time with each other, no matter if someone lives till 60, 15 or 99.”

He added, “I hope this grief stays with me, because its the unexpressed love that I didn’t get to tell her. So for me I was able to step into this in a way where I could honor this incredible life of Jonathan Larson. I got to sing Jonathan Larson’s unfinished song while simultaneously singing for my  mother.”

On the other hand, Andrew Garfield maybe appearing in the new Tom Holland starrer Spider-Man: No Way Home.  On the work front, Garfield was most recently be seen in Netflix’s Tick, Tick… Boom!
