Andy Serkis is best known for his film screenings.
Andy Serkis, who is best known for his film screenings, celebrates his 56th birthday today. Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! Birthday! He’s your man if you want someone to give your CGI character a vivid expression and movement.
He is an actor, but his best work is not action in the traditional sense of the word, but a catch of the movement. As the Lord of the Rings: The King’s Return received an Oscar in 2004 (a victory in the eleven categories in which he was nominated), and many critics wondered whether Serkis should have been nominated for best actor or best support.
You’re the judge of that. In the meantime, let’s take a look at his top ten appearances.
1. Gollum in Lord of the Rings: Two towers
It doesn’t make any sense. This role made Andy Serkis an international star. Gollum was a pathetic humanoid figure with an obsession: a ring, the most important McGuffin of the LOTR trilogy. He was once a Hobbit (but not of the Shire) who was corrupted by his strong desire to own and keep the One Ring. The character was charming and also offered the necessary humour at nightfall. Humour was provided by Gollum’s grammar (he keeps saying We want them in relation to the One Ring) and his two warlike personalities – one childlike, innocent and useful, the other greedy, murderous and malicious.
2. Gollum in Lord of the Rings: The return of the king
Serkis took over Gollum’s role in the trilogy. The film also tells the story of how the Hobbit Sméagol Gollum became. Serkis gave a surprisingly gruesome performance when his character noticed a ring and became absolutely fascinated by it, incapable of ever letting go of it.
3. Gollum in The Hobbit: An unexpected journey
The last image of the cult character Andy Serkis appeared in the first Hobbit film, in which Martin Freeman Bilbo Baggins met him under the misty mountains with his precious Ring One. The LOTR trilogy has received very positive feedback and the fans have seen significant improvements in motion capture technology with much more precise Gollum functions.
4. Caesar in the Planet of the Monkey Trilogy.
Like Gollum, Serkis Caesar was portrayed in this trilogy of films, depicting him first with a playful aspect in childhood, then with a dark determination and sharpness like an adult chimpanzee. The piece was constantly explained, which once again shows why motion capture should be seen as acting.
5. King Kong in King Kong
After The Lord of the Rings, Andy Serkis works again with Peter Jackson on King Kong as the main character.
6. Ulysses Clawe in the Black Panther.
Serkis’ reach is not limited to capturing movement, and his appearance as the mad, angry villain Ulysses Clawe in The Black Panther is proof of that.
7. Captain Haddock is on Tintin’s adventures.
Andy Serkis emphasized the Scottish accent in this cartoon and again played a role through motion capture.
8. Mr. Alley in Prestige
Serkis played the role of Nicola Tesla’s assistant in this director Christopher Nolan. The role of Tesla was played by an English music legend, David Bowie.
9. A ball at Mowgli’s.
The film, based on Redyard Kipling’s timeless children’s book, may be contradictory in itself, but Andy Serki’s Capture the Movement remains strong.
10. Supreme Leader Snock in Star Wars: Last Jedi
Tell me what you say about how you got rid of that character. Sekis’ performance gave Snock a sense of anger and threat – two signs of a terrible villain.
