IMDbProfile

Andy Serkis played Gollum in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings. He also appeared as Sméagol in The Return of the King, and is rumoured to reprise his role in Guillermo del Toro's The Hobbit. He based the gulping swallow sound "gollum" on his pet cat coughing up a furball.

Serkis also provided voices for various Orcs in The Two Towers and the Witch-king of Angmar in The Return of the King.

Together with Gary Russell, he wrote a book about his acting experience, titled Gollum: How We Made Movie Magic.

"They're only scorned because they're into something popular. But it's just the same as supporting a football team or being madly into Picasso or Brahms. And it's certainly a lot more fun than chess."
