How Andy Serkis Plays a Talking Ape And We All Believed It

Andy Serkis

Andy Serkis is also known as the ‘king of motion capture acting’. He brilliantly played Gollum in Lord of the Rings and we all ate it up like crazy, and then he played Caesar in Planet of the Apes and we all believed that chimps can actually talk, and now Snoke in Star Wars. I haven’t seen The Last Jedi yet but I am sure he must have nailed that character as well.

In this New York Times video, Serkis explains how he plays a talking ape believable.
