Andrew’s ‘wonderful journey’ for his new film
Actor Andrew Garfield (right) says for his role in Silence he wanted to get rid of the feeling of “self-glory”. In the Martin Scorsese-directed film, the actor plays a Catholic missionary who, with a fellow priest (Adam Driver), sets out to Japan to find their missing mentor (Liam Neeson), reported Female First. “With Silence, I wanted my ego to get beaten up and get past this idea of self-glory, that limited perspective on life and what’s meaningful. It was a great journey to go on because it’s the pulverisation of the ego and the cracking open of the small self to reveal the deeper self inside and to truly inhabit the world in a more mature way. I hope that some of that rubbed off,” Garfield said.
