Actors on Actors: Zendaya + Andrew Garfield

Jun 10, 2022 | Articles

Everyone loved the second season of “Euphoria” — even Spider-Man. (Well, at least one of the Spider-Men.) When Andrew Garfield sees Zendaya, he can’t stop raving about her tour de force as Rue in the critically acclaimed HBO series. Garfield is both a fan and a friend. The two actors crossed paths in the multiverse of last year’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” in which Zendaya plays MJ opposite a set of Peter Parkers including Garfield, Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland. And he’s come prepared with a list of deeply researched questions.

Then it’s time for Garfield to accept heaps of praise from Zendaya. He’ll likely follow his latest Oscar nomination with an Emmy nod for “Under the Banner of Heaven,” the FX limited series streaming exclusively on Hulu in which he plays a detective investigating a grisly murder that’s rocked a Mormon community. These A-listers are at the pinnacle of the acting profession, but fans who are waiting for “Spider-Man” dish won’t be disappointed. As they do in each of their roles, Garfield and Zendaya deliver on Variety’s “Actors on Actors” presented by Apple TV+.
