has taken the perfect approach to his career, according to his "Never Let Me Go
" co-star Domhnall Gleeson. Andrew, who will take on the role of Spider-Man in "The Amazing Spider-Man
", is currently winning rave reviews for his role as Eduardo Saverin in "The Social Network
" based on the founding of social networking site Facebook, and Domhnall revealed he would love to emulate the actor's career.
"I think Andrew is being very relaxed but smart about it. He didn't actively seek out to be cast as a big Hollywood type, but people just saw what a talent he is and it worked out for him," he said. "Personally if I continued to get work like I've received in the last year, I'd be extremely happy."
Domhnall, the 27-year-old son of Irish actor Brendan Gleeson, revealed he was disappointed his movie with Andrew "Never Let Me Go" wasn't better received but thinks people may have misunderstood its premise. He explained to Movies.ie, "I worked on 'Never Let Me Go' with Keira Knightley
, Carey Mulligan
and Andrew Garfield."
"They're playing these sheltered teens just finishing school and entering the real world. I'm playing an older kid, Rodney, who is sort of wise to the world in comparison. I think the script really spoke to me because it is such a beautifully written story. I think part of the problem some people might have thought it was a bit of a downer - organ harvesting etc... but really it's about celebrating life and what time you have here."
