There’s a lot of love for actor Andrew Garfield on Twitter this morning.
Hours after he won the 2018 Best Actor in a Play Tony Award for his performance as Prior Walter in “Angels in America”, his lunch was interrupted by a fan.
During the course of the meeting, he decided to record a video for the fan’s son, Twitter user Ian Palmer (@itsianpalmer).
“Hi Ian, you have a very sweet mother who doesn’t mind crossing boundaries over lunch tables. I hear you’re sick and you didn’t get to go out last night. Get better. Sending love. This is Andrew Garfield, by the way.”
