Andy Serkis talks to Empire about filming his scenes as Supreme Leader Snoke… Who is supreme in any number of ways. Namely, he is tall.
“It was quite an unusual situation,” Serkis tells us in the new issue of Empire. “I worked specifically with Domhnall Gleeson and with Adam Driver. My first day was basically standing on a 25-foot podium doing Lord Snoke without the faintest idea what he looked like… or in fact who he was! I was very high up, totally on my own, away from everybody else, but acting with them.”
Echoing his comments to Entertainment Weekly, Serkis also calls the character “severely damaged.”
