Andy Serkis in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"

After watching "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" I became sure that my favorite character in the movie, who made me smile and almost cry, is again made by computer. But not wholly. A very talented actor, who had played such unrealistic characters before, showed us again that it's possible to create on the screen an ape with real feelings and very smart eyes. Andy Serkis again was wearing this strange costume with many sensors and was learning how to act like an animal. His previous experience from the filming "The Lord of The Rings" trilogy, where he portrayed Gollum, really helped him this time. Now he's working with Peter Jackson on the two upcoming "Hobbit" movies, playing Gollum again.

I've found two videos - the first one with scenes from the set and some comments from Andy and another one with an interview, where he talks about how he was creating Caesar's personality.
