* ManOfAThousandVoices: More like Man of a Thousand ''[[SerkisFolk Bodies]]'', but let's put it this way: Would ''you'' have guessed that [[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin Captain Haddock]], [[Film/LordOfTheRings Gollum]], and [[Film/TheForceAwakens Supreme Leader]] [[Film/TheLastJedi Snoke]] were all voiced by the same person?

In 1999, Andy Serkis [[StarMakingRole landed the prize role]] of Gollum in Creator/PeterJackson's epic film trilogy based on Creator/JRRTolkien's saga ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', which quickly made him the best known motion capture performer in the movie industry, and TropeNamer for SerkisFolk. He spent four years on the part and received awards and nominations for his performance as Gollum, a computer generated character in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'' (2002) and ''The Return of the King'' (2003) which won eleven Oscars.[[note]] Many people feel Serkis should've at least been nominated for an Oscar for his performance as Gollum, but the Academy jury is still out on whether SerkisFolk performances are acting in the traditional sense that might fall under acting award criteria, instead of lesser special effects categories.[[/note]] Serkis also used this art form in his performance as Kong in ''Film/{{King Kong|2005}}'', which won him a Toronto Film Critics Association Award (2005) for his unprecedented work helping to realize the main character, and a Visual Effects Society Award (2006) for Outstanding Animated Character in a Live Action Motion Picture.

Andy Serkis is an English actor, painter, and director, born April 20, 1964. He has three sisters and a brother. As a child, Serkis wanted to be an artist; he was fond of painting and drawing, and visualized himself working behind the scenes in productions. Serkis studied visual arts at Lancaster University. There he became involved in mechanical aspects of the theatre and did stage design and set building for theatrical productions. Then Serkis was asked to play a role in a student production, and made his stage debut in Barrie Keefe's play ''Gotcha''; thereafter he switched from stage design to acting, which was a real calling that transformed his life.
