British-American actor Andrew Garfield has revealed that he would not say no to dating a man in the future.

Garfield who began his career on the UK stage and in television productions is currently starring in Angels in America, was asked what areas of his life he used to play a gay man living in New York, to which he replied, “As far as I know, I am not a gay man.”

“Maybe I’ll have an awakening later in my life, which I’m sure will be wonderful and I’ll get to explore that part of the garden, but right now I’m secluded to my area, which is wonderful as well. I adore it.”

The Los Angeles-born actor who was raised in Epsom, Surrey, then questioned himself on what right he has as a straight person, to play a gay character.

“I had to trust that it was the right thing” Tony Kushner, writer of Angels in America had previously asked him the same question.

“It was as about doing honour, doing justice and knowing my history,” Garfield explained.

“The preparation had begun with a lot of my friends, my performance was ss much devoted to my friends in the gay community as it is those that passed during the epidemic.”

Garfield also shared how watching RuPaul’s Drag Race helped him find the character, claiming that watching RuPaul’s Drag Race is “my life outside of this play. I am a gay man right now just without the physical act … that’s all,” the thirty-three-year-old joked.
