Andy Serkis was recently in attendance at the 2015 Jameson Empire Awards where he discussed his first directorial endeavor, Jungle Book: Origins, and he also talked a bit about his role as Ulysses Klaw in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. He also addressed his frustration at the continued lack of recognition for motion capture artists.
On the subject of Star Wars, he talked a little about the voice he employed in the teaser trailer for The Force Awakens, and the debate that raged over whose voice that was – his own or that of Benedict Cumberbatch.
He doesn’t disclose who he’s playing in the film, so there’s no big revelation as far as that goes. Still, it’s a pleasant interview, so enjoy!
In case you need a reminder, or you just can’t get enough, here’s the teaser for The Force Awakens, featuring narration by Andy Serkis.
Chills – Every. Time. 🙂
The Force Awakens opens in theater December 18.
