Andy Serkis will be forever remembered for his portrayal of the character Gollum in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and now Andy is set to play the character again in The Hobbit trilogy. Andy has opened up about his relationship with Gollum and admits that he had no worries about being able to bring him back to life.

Speaking to Flicks and Bits, Serkis said, “Gollum had been such an important role for me, and he never really went away - I've been constantly reminded of him as a character practically every day of my life since the Lord of the Rings. To actually really re-engage and go back in there, and actually think, 'I'm actually going to play you again'. That was actually quite a strange feeling.”
 
He added, “When I played him a decade or more ago, I really got under the skin of Gollum in a very deep way. So I had no fear that I would not be able to plumb those depths again. But there were a couple of moments early on when I felt like I was doing a pale imitation.”

Andy continued, “And then, when we were actually on the set doing this iconic scene between Gollum and Bilbo, 'Game of Riddles', I felt I had truly found my way back to him. I could absolutely feel the reality of Gollum's situation, the tragedy and the great loss of the one thing he holds dear.”
 
You catch Andy Serkis’ latest performance as Gollum in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey which is set to be released in the UK on December 13 and in the US on December 14.
