Andy Serkis has been talking, briefly, about playing the role of Gollum
the coming LORD OF THE RINGS film trilogy. While chatting with the
and Islington Express newspaper, the actor spoke of one of the saga's
important roles, saying, "[Gollum's] an amazing role. The way we've done
is to use a combination of animation and motion capture... so I get to
the voice and physicality of the part."
Regarding his intepretation of the part, Serkis says that he is playing
Gollum as a "ring junkie, complete with withdrawal symptoms." Serkis
"When you are playing such an extreme character, you have to root it in
something the audience can identify with."
