Mel Gibson on Andrew Garfield in ‘Hacksaw Ridge’: He Was a ‘Real Superhero’

25 October 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Andrew Garfield brought his usual humility to the red carpet Monday night for the Los Angeles premiere of Mel Gibson‘s “Hacksaw Ridge” at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

“I’m very fortunate to work on films that inspire me,” he reflected on portraying Desmond T. Doss, the only conscientious objector to ever be awarded a congressional Medal of Honor for heroism. Doss was a Seventh-day Adventist who became a medic while adhering to his religious convictions of not carrying a weapon. He saved 75 men during the Battle of Okinawa in World War II.

“He’s an incredible model of what it is to love and treat everyone equally,” Garfield noted. “I tried to absorb as much of his essence as possible. I was able to go to his hometown and handle his old tools in sort of a mystical thing where you hope to absorb his essence. »
