Andrew Garfield Thanks LGBTQ Community, Wins First Tony Award For ‘Angels In America’

Andrew Garfield dedicated his Tony Award to the “countless LGBTQ people who have fought and died for the right to live and love as we are created to,” as he was honoured for his performance in “Angels in America” Sunday night.

The 34-year-old, who plays AIDS patient Prior Walter in the much-loved production, shared: “We are all sacred and we all belong, so let’s just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked.”

This is the first Tony Award for the Hollywood actor, who was previously nominated in 2012 for his supporting role in “Death of a Salesman”.

“It’s the biggest play that I’ll ever do,” Garfield told ET on the red carpet. “It’s the hardest thing I’ll ever do and it’s nothing but a privilege.”
