The trailer for Andrew Garfield‘s upcoming movie Silence was released this past week, and now, he’s opening up about why he decided to do the upcoming Martin Scorsese movie.

“I don’t think I am called to be a priest,” the 33-year-old actor told the New York Times about playing the role of Father Rodrigues. “But I had the feeling that I was being called to something: called to work with one of the great directors, and called to this role as something I had to pursue for my spiritual development.”
