Andy Serkis was devastated when Snoke died in The Last Jedi
Andy Serkis admits he was disappointed to learn Supreme Leader Snoke would die in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
When Supreme Leader Snoke was first introduced Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the character was such a mystery that he sparked theories for two years. Snoke, played by Andy Serkis, was only visible in The Force Awakens via hologram, but he made a great showing in the flesh Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
In one of the more surprising scenes in The Last Jedi, Snoke was killed, cut in half by a lightsaber. Snoke’s death not only came as a surprise to the audience, but also to Andy Serkis himself. When speaking to GQSerkis admitted that revealing his character’s death was “gutted” him.
Let me just put it this way. When I went in to read The Last Jedi, [I spent] The first 30 pages thought, ‘This is the most incredible character.’ Then I turned the page: ‘And then Snoke gets cut in half.’ And I was gutted. gutted.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker revealed that Snoke had been created by Emperor Palpatine, who had been secretly directing Snoke’s actions all along. Fans were obviously hoping that Snoke would have been explored a little more in the sequels, but Andy Serkis is poised to reprise the role in another war of stars Project. “I really love this character‘ said Serkis. “And I’ll say it: I wouldn’t mind if he came back.” As The Mandalorian may have made a few references to Snoke, that’s entirely possible.
Andy Serkis returned to the war of stars franchise in a different role as he played Kino Loy in the first season of Andor. Being able to show your stuff free of digital makeup was a plus, and Serkis said so Andor “was a masterpiece of television making. love the grounded war of stars World – not that I don’t like the operatic [style]because I like that too. But it’s nice to see it exploring the murky end of the pool.“
Andy Serkis will next star alongside Idris Elba Luther: The Fallen Sun. Serkis plays a vicious serial killer terrorizing London, while the brilliant but disgraced detective John Luther (Elba) is behind bars. Tormented by his failure to catch the cyber psychopath who is now taunting him, Luther decides to break out of prison to finish the job by any means necessary. Luther: The Fallen Sun will be launched on Netflix March 10th and you can check out a review of the film by our very own JimmyO here.
