Richard Garfield, an American, and Lynn, a British mother, gave birth to Andrew Russell Garfield in Los Angeles, California.

He enrolled in the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama at the age of 19.
His first professional roles were on the stage, then in the UK’s Channel 4 teen drama Sugar Rush (2005), he made his television debut. Followed by additional TV work, many film appearances, and a two-part story that reached a wider UK audience in Doctor Who’s third season (2005). In the 2010 movies The Social Network and Never Let Me Go, Garfield played the roles of Eduardo and Tommy, respectively.
