NZ actor talks of being Caesar in "War for the Planet of the Apes" - video

My daughter wants to take me to see the new movie War for the Planet of the Apes. Not many people may know but Caesar (the lead ape character) is played by New Zealand actor Andy Serkis.

There's an incredible clip included in this interview showing how Serkis acts as that acting is transferred to the computer generated Caesar. Anyone who thinks that those doing the voices are just doing the voices is truly mistaken. As he says, now an actor can play anything.

He also played Gollum  in Lord of the Rings.
