Andy Serkis reads ‘Hobbit’ excerpt as Gollum VIDEO
Andy Serkis, the British actor who famously portrayed Gollum in director Peter Jackson’s epic cinematic adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Ring, read an excerpt from The Hobbit at recent event. According to Cinema Blend,, attendees of a Hobbit-oriented celebration were dazzled by the appearance of Serkis, who took a moment to read a few lines from the award-winning novel as the character he helped bring to life on the big screen.
“Part of the difficulty of doing ‘The Hobbit’ twelve years later is kind of reclaiming him, because I’ve heard that many impersonations and people have asked me to do that many telephone messages for them,” Serkis explained to Entertainment Weekly.
