Andy Serkis Says There’s ‘So Much To Be Uncovered’ About Snoke, So Let Him Do It, Star Wars

Andy Serkis is an incredibly gifted actor who has brought to life numerous classic characters, both through the use of cutting-edge motion capture techniques, and his live-action performances. When we ranked the 10 best Andy Serkis movies, they showcased his work in the Lord of the Rings franchise, the Planet of the Apes movies, and Star Wars. And even though Serkis created a memorable role for the Disney+ series Andor, playing prison guard Kino Loy, there’s a different Star Wars character he played briefly that he desperately wants another crack at: Supreme Leader Snoke.

We first saw Snoke as a hologram projection lecturing Kylo Ren about an awakening he has sensed in The Force. Supreme Leader Snoke had a larger role in Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. But he was cut in half… and his story was cut to shreds. Speaking with Andy Serkis at Star Wars Celebration 2023, we asked him if the new movies that were announced by Kathleen Kennedy might open the door to more Snoke stories, Serkis told us:

Now that I hope will happen, because that would be an incredible… there’s so much – I love that character, too, but there’s so much to be uncovered about that character. And the damage in that character. And also, what he’s capable of is horrific. But also, the emotional and physical scars that he carries, why he’s driven to do what he does… there’s a lot of fertile ground there. I want to see it!
