Andy Serkis of Armenian Ethnicity is playing in Star Wars 7
Andrew Clement “Andy” Serkis” (born 20 April 1964) is an English film actor, director and author. He is best known for his performance capture roles comprising motion capture acting, animation and voice work for such computer-generated characters as: Gollum in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy (2001–2003) and The Hobbit, Captain Haddock in Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin (2011), King Kong in the eponymous 2005 film, Caesar in Rise (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) etc.
Serkis, one of five children, was born and brought up in Ruislip Manor in the London Borough of Hillingdon. His father, Clement Serkis, was an Iraqi gynaecologist of Armenian ethnicity. His ancestors’ original surname was Sarkisian.
As reports Techradar.com, Andy Serkis is bringing his motion-capture skills to a galaxy far, far away. In an interview with photographer Annie Leibovitz, who was behind the camera for those great shots for Vanity Fair, Starwars.com announced that Serkis is playing “Supreme Leader Snoke” in Star Wars Episode 7:
They have no clue which side of the Force Snoke is on, but they do have a couple of clues to go off of. In the image, Serkis’ snarl looks as ominous as the dark room he sits in. It is also heard his bellowing voice in the beginning of the first teaser trailer. While nothing’s been said one way or another, it sounds like Snoke will be a follower of the dark side.
For those who are unfamiliar with Serkis, you probably know him well but just don’t know it. The mo-cap aficionado has portrayed King Kong in Peter Jackson’s remake, Caesar in the Planet of the Apes reboot films and, most notably, the riddle-hissing villainous tour guide from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films, Gollum.
Since Serkis is known for translating body movements like no one else, it will be fascinating to see who this Supreme Leader Snoke is. All is known for sure is that Serkis is playing him in full motion-capture regalia, and that’s where he shines the brightest.
