That's just obvious. It's just physical. The hardest thing is probably to find and play the essence of an animal that has a character that feels that, you know, has perspective.

People talk about Andy Serkis as being like the premiere performance capture actor. And that as a concept is sort of nonsensical because performance captures the technology that records performances.

He's one of the best actors in the world, and the reason that people, um, respond so emotionally to Caesar is because behind Caesar is Andy Serkis' performance, which is remarkable. You are impressive. Smart as hell. You're stronger than we are. But you're taking this all much too personally. So emotional! Andy's, you know, one of the greatest actors I've ever seen.
