Andrew Garfield is expected to gain international recognition with the title role in The Amazing Spider-Man, currently opening around the world.
Born in California but brought up in the UK, the 28-year-old follows in Tobey Maguire's footsteps as Peter Parker, as the franchise gets a reboot.
Garfield sat down with Talking Movies' Tom Brook to discuss his approach to playing an iconic American superhero.
Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 1330 GMT and Sunday at 0030, 0730 and 2030 GMT.
