Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Andy Serkis!
Andy Serkis is a marvel. No other actor has managed to create such indelible characters with the help of motion capture. Whether it is Gollum in THE LORD OF THE RINGS or the iconic KING KONG, he continues to offer wonderful and nuanced work as the effects improve. In RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, the actor began his journey as Caesar. With the sequel, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, he once again gives a remarkable performance which may stand out as one of the best of the year.
When I sat down with the actor at Crissy Field in San Francisco, we discussed how he took on the role from RISE and his transformation to the leader Caesar becomes. As terrific as his work is, the question of whether or not we are closer to Academy Award consideration for motion capture was brought up. Andy gave a very honest answer about his thoughts on the subject. It was a pleasure talking with this amazing talent who gives a triumphant performance. Make sure you witness DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES this Friday at a theatre near you.
