In several recent interviews, Andrew Garfield has been thinking about his return to acting and how it has helped him deal with the recent loss of his mother.
In an appearance on The Late Show on Monday, the host Stephen Colbert ask the actor about his new movie tick, tick… BOOM! in which he played the role of Jonathan Larson, To rent The lyricist and composer passed away the same day the musical debuted and “how to do this show, or any performance, and how art itself helps you deal with grief. ” After taking a moment to calm himself, Garfield replied, “I love talking about it, by the way, so if I cry, that’s… just a beautiful thing.” He continued, “This is all unrevealed love. The grief will remain with us until we pass because we never have enough time for each other, right? It doesn’t matter who lives to 60, 15 or 99. So I hope this pain stays with me because it’s all unrevealed love that I can’t tell her. And I told her every day! We all tell her every day, she’s our absolute best.” Lynn Garfield died of pancreatic cancer in 2019.
He went on to explain that, thanks to this film, “I was able to step into this in a way that I was able to celebrate this incredible life of Jonathan Larson. He was taken away too soon. He died at the age of 35 on the night of the first preview of To rent off-Broadway in the New York Theater Workshop, some strange twist of fate to which he was so soon brought. And this movie deals with that, it deals with the ticking clock we all have. That somewhere we all know that life is sacred, life is short, and that we should be here as much as possible together and holding on tight. ” So he continued, choking, “I had to sing Jonathan Larson’s unfinished song while simultaneously singing to my mother and her unfinished song. And I’m in debt to John, and I’m in debt Lin-Manuel Miranda, I am indebted to everyone who brought me to this place so that I can honor the most beautiful person I have ever experienced in my life through my art and use it as a cure, use it as a way to stitch up wounds. ”
In an interview with GQ released on Monday, Garfield also addressed the sudden loss of his mother. “Really, I see spiritual pursuits as the only goal for me, that is my job and otherwise,” he said, adding that the deaths of his parents only reinforce that view. “There is a keen awareness of the ephemeral nature of this. And that’s what gives it all its meaning. I think looking at what’s going on behind everything is the only thing I care about.”
