Andrew Clement “Andy” Serkis (born 20 April 1964) is an English film actor, director and writer. Serkis is famous for his performance capture parts consisting of motion capture acting, animation and voice work for such computer-created characters as: Gollum in “The Lord of the Rings” movie trilogy (2001–2003) and “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” (2012), King Kong in the eponymous 2005 movie, Caesar in “Rise” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” (2011, 2014) and Captain Haddock in Steven Spielberg’s “The Adventures of Tintin” (2011). Serkis’ movie work in motion capture continues to be critically acclaimed, earning him recognition from many organizations that don’t traditionally recognize motion capture as “actual performing”. Serkis has received an Empire Award, a National Board of Review Award, two Saturn Awards and a Screen Actors Guild Award because of his motion capture work. In 2014, he was supported as part of the primary cast of “Star Wars Episode VII”, at the same time as having a supporting part in “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, each of which is published in 2015.

1[ on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)] Trying to get back into the head of "Gollum", it felt like kinda doing an impersonation if a character I had played. It was weird 'cause it was like having to re-own it again.
2[on learning at 'ape school' how to walk and move like a simian, playing Caesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)] When you are watching yourself as an actor who has played a computer-generated role [King Kong], obviously you are looking to see if your performance has fully manifested itself on the screen, and if it contains all the original intention that was put there. And what I've seen,so far, has delighted me, because I know Rupert [Wyatt] has been devoted to try and push the emotional core of all the performances right through the post-production phase.
3I've always been really in touch with my primal instincts. In my profession you have to be. You have to be open to going where your emotions take you. Acting is a sort of pressure cooker that allows the fizz to come out the top. God knows what I'd be like if I didn't have that. Even more animal, perhaps.
4I do feel incredibly liberated when I'm inside another's skin, basically, and so method does afford you that, hugely.
5"We didn't want to anthropomorphize him to the point where we were explaining every single little gesture. Gorillas, both in captivity and the wild, have an enigmatic quality - a sense of disconnect, of otherness" - on his title character in King Kong (2005).
6[on playing Gollum in Lord of the Rings:] "Everyone has their own interpretation of what he is, what he looks like and how he sounds. So it was up to me to just trust my own instincts."
1His father was a gynaecologist who opened a hospital in Baghdad and was briefly imprisoned under Saddam Hussein's regime.
2Has thrice co-starred with Jamie Bell: Deathwatch (2002), King Kong (2005) and The Adventures of Tintin (2011).
3Has twice played computer-generated apes: in "King Kong" (as the giant title character) and "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" (as Caesar, the chimpanzee who leads the rebellion).
4Completing and Directing Motion Capture for Playstation 3's game 'Heavenly Sword' at Weta Digital in Wellington, New Zealand. Plays the Character of 'King' in the game.
5His performance as Gollum in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy is ranked #10 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.
6Has three sisters and a brother.
7Children: Sonny, Ruby and Louis George (born 19th June 2004).
8Uses his "Gollum" voice on his children, for fun and/or when they misbehave.
9His family name, Serkis, is of Armenian descent like Mikhail Vartanov's and Sergei Parajanov's but originally would have been Sarkisian, Vartaniantz and Parajanian (respectively)
10His last day of filming on the Lord of the Rings trilogy was only a few weeks before the theatrical release of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003). On the carpet of Peter Jackson's living room, they filmed the facial reaction of Smeagol/Gollum when he realizes Frodo intends to destroy the ring. The resulting video was e-mailed to Weta Digital so the animators could replicate the shot with the CGI character.
11Based the voice of Gollum on the sounds his cats made while coughing up furballs.
12September 2004 - Attended the Armaggeddon Pulp Culture Expo Convention in Wellington, New Zealand as a Lord of the Rings guest
13Although he was critically acclaimed for the performances, he was ruled ineligible for Best Supporting Actor nominations at the 2003, 2004 and 2012 Academy Awards because his characters Gollum in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) and Caesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) were computer generated.
14Owns one of two prop rings used in "Lord of the Rings." The other went to Elijah Wood, who played Frodo Baggins.
15Is a vegetarian.
16He went to St Benedict's School, London, UK.
17Was required to don a wetsuit and flail around in literally freezing water during re-shoots for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002).
18Has three children, two sons and a daughter.
19His mother, Lylie (Weech), is British, and taught handicapped children. His father, Clement Serkis, a doctor, was born in Iraq, of Armenian descent.
