Andy Serkis Quotes

  • "I don't see a difference between playing a performance capture role and a live action role, they're just characters to me at the end of the day and I'm an actor who wants to explore those characters in fantastically written scripts. The only caveat is a good story is a good character. " - Andy Serkis
  • "Gollum is Gollum - though in 'Lord of the Rings' he's 600 years old and in 'The Hobbit' he's 540, so he looks a little bit more handsome." - Andy Serkis
  • "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." - Andy Serkis
