Is Andrew Garfield Jewish?

Andrew Garfield is a Jew. The actor was born in Los Angeles to a British mother from Essex and an American father from California. Andrew Garfield moved with his family to Britain when he was three years old.

Garfield's parents ran a small interior design business. His father, Richard, was head coach of the Guildford Swimming Club and his mother, Lynn, wass a teaching assistant at a nursery school.

In addition to his role in Aaron Sorkin's "The Social Network," Garfield has portrayed Peter Parker in the 2012 sequel of "Spiderman." During an interview before the release of "Spiderman," an interviewer asked Garfield where'd all his fretting came from to which he responded, "Being Jewish."
