Andy Serkis Talks Supreme Leader Snoke with Entertainment Weekly!

Andy Serkis SnokeIn their second exclusive story for the day, Entertainment Weekly speak with Andy Serkis about his villainous character Snoke in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, revealing many interesting and new details…

 

 

Excerpt from Entertainment Weekly:

Each character is always a collaborative process with the filmmakers and visual effects artists, but in the case of Snoke, the character’s look, voice, and movements evolved based on how far Serkis and director and co-writer J.J. Abrams could push the tech.

Snoke kept changing, not only through principle photography, but even after. (So any “early concept art” that may be floating around online is probably nowhere near what this dark-hearted character looks like.)

Andy Serkis“Supreme Leader Snoke is quite an enigmatic character, and strangely vulnerable at the same time as being quite powerful,” Serkis says. “Obviously he has a huge agenda. He has suffered a lot of damage. As I said, there is a strange vulnerability to him, which belies his true agenda, I suppose.”

While Abrams has emphasized a return to practical effects on The Force Awakens, is Snoke perhaps a character who could have been played by Serkis in make-up?

“No, no,” the actor says. “The scale of him, for instance, is one reason. He is large. He appears tall. And also just the facial design – you couldn’t have gotten there with prosthetics. It’s too extreme. Without giving too much away at this point, he has a very distinctive, idiosyncratic bone structure and facial structure. You could never have done it [in real life.]”

first-order-troopers-shootIf Snoke is a “damaged” character, that raises the question: Did his wounds come from the clash between the Rebellion and the Empire, seen in the original Star Wars trilogy? Serkis hesitates here, but then says he believes Snoke was outside of that conflict.

“No, he’s a new character in this universe. It is very much a newly-introduced character,” Serkis says. “He’s aware of what’s gone on, in the respect that he has been around and is aware of prior events. I think it’d be fair to say that he is aware of the past to a great degree.”
