Performance capture is a technology not a genre it’s just another way of recording an actor’s performance.

Andy Serkis Technology Quote

I’ve always thought of acting as a tool to change society. I watch a lot of actors and I see panic in their eyes because they don’t know why they act and I know why I act. Whether I’m a good or a bad actor I know why I do it.

Andy Serkis Society Quote

But I think there’s something wonderful and extraordinary about climbing on your own and just that kind of relationship to the environment. I’m very addicted to the mountains. You know so I do like that solitude.

The learning curve is ‘The Hobbit’ is being shot in 3D.

Andy Serkis Learning Quote

I stayed in Baghdad every summer until I was 14. My dad’s sister is still there but many of my relatives have managed to get out. People forget that there are still people there who are not radicalized in any particular direction trying to live normal lives in a very difficult situation.

Andy Serkis Dad Quote

I understand why people went nuts for ‘The Artist.’ We use words so much it’s nice to be able to explore a different way of communication to be able to express silently what someone – or something – is thinking or feeling.

Andy Serkis Communication Quote

My dad was working abroad in Iraq and he was a doctor. We used to go and visit him in Baghdad off and on. For the first ten years of my life we used to go backwards and forwards to Baghdad so that was quite amazing. I spent a lot of time traveling around the Middle East.

Andy Serkis Amazing Quote

I never felt totally 100% patriotically English… I’d seen a lot of the world by an early age – sort of spent a lot of time traveling around Lebanon and I’d seen Babylon and Damascus and all sorts of places in the Middle East by the time I was ten. Then we’d return to Ruslip in West London… Done a fair bit of traveling really.
