Andy Serkis Interview for "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"

Uploaded on Friday 12 August 2011


I love, love, love "Rise of the Planet of the Apes." It's one of the best sci-fi action films of the year and that's largely due to Andy Serkis' affecting performance as the rising simian leader Cesar. From his portrayal of Gollum in "The Lord of the Rings" films to Kong in "King Kong" to Cesar in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," Serkis knows how to infuse heart to his characters.

In this interview, we talked about:

His attraction to making "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"
How he differentiates Cesar from his previous roles
How he injects heart to his character
Is he a fan of the original "Planet of the Apes?"
Working in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit"
