Actor Andrew Garfield expressed his interest in the “mystery of a spiritual life” saying he would be studying theology if he has not been acting.
Andrew Garfield is well-known for his role in the recent hit Marvel film “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” He was also often seen in faith-based movies including “Hacksaw Ridge,” and “The Eyes Of Tammy Faye.” In his recent role in the true-crime series “Under the Banner of Heaven,” he played the detective who struggles with faith and murder.
The 38-year-old actor’s choice of roles has ignited questions about his interest in spiritual matters. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, answered the questions about his recent projects. He then gave a bold statement that if he has not become an actor, he would have studied theology.
“Questions of faith and spirituality, and the mystery of a spiritual life, is what I’m drawn to the most,” Garfield said. “If I wasn’t an actor, I think I’d be doing some kind of theological study.”
In 2017, he also gave a controversial statement about his spirituality. In an interview about his role as Father Sebastiao Rodrigues in the religious-themed film “Silence”. Andrew said that falling in love with Jesus Christ is easy.
“What was really easy was falling in love with this person, was falling in love with Jesus Christ, that was the most surprising thing,” he told America magazine of his experience preparing for the role. “That was the most remarkable thing — falling in love, and how easy it was to fall in love with Jesus.”
It is not yet certain whether he has become a Christian. However, his interest in it says a lot about his spiritual life. Let us pray that the Lord will encounter more people in Hollywood and be transformed by the love of Jesus Christ.
