Posted on Author IsaComments Off on Andrew for ShortList
Andrew Garfield is about to tell what he confidently describes as a “very ShortList story”. He sets aside his plate of grilled beef and salad, and leaps up from the sofa in order to act it out properly.
“It was 2010, around the time of The Social Network,” he says, pacing the room. “I was being invited to all these LA parties, and three of my mates from home [Epsom, Surrey] came out for one. Everyone there was famous, and we didn’t know what to do, so we ended up creating a little square in the middle of the room, looking in at each other. We couldn’t think of anything to say, so my mate George says, ‘Let’s all say “rhubarb”.’ So we’re all just standing there, these four tall, awkward English boys, muttering ‘rhubarb’. And then at one point, oh my God…”
He breaks off to literally – this is no exaggeration – shake with laughter. “At one point, my mate James accidentally kissed Taylor Swift on the ear! We finally started talking to people, and as we were leaving Taylor Swift says, ‘Bye guys,’ and James leans in, but he doesn’t know if it’s a hug or what, so for some reason he just… kisses her on the ear.” More shaking. He regains composure for the final chapter. “Then at the end of the night – and I won’t explain how this happened – all four of us ended up dancing in pyjamas at Quincy Jones’s house.”

The revival of Tony Kushner’s epic two-part play about life under the Aids crisis in 1980s New York will open in April this year, and is one of the hottest tickets of the 2017 theatre calendar.
Angels in America cast includes Hollywood star Andrew Garfield, stage and screen favourite Russell Tovey, and Olivier award winner Denise Gough, whose performance in Duncan Macmillan’s People Places and Things was compared to Mark Rylance’s in Jerusaleum.
The production will be directed by Marianne Elliott, most well-known for directing War Horse and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
Garfield, who plays Prior Walter, said that the play “feels so very urgent at this moment, for all our souls,” whilst James McArdle, playing Louis Ironson, described it as “one of the greatest plays of the 20th century”.
Angels in America runs at the National Theatre from April 11. It will also be broadcast as an NT Live screening.
