Quickbeam was lucky enough to secure an interview with Andy Serkis where he discusses his preparation for his role as Gollum/Smeagol. He also talks about how fame has affected him and the physicality of the role. There’s some footage of Andy’s Comic Con appearance in there as well. This interview was directed by Asfaloth, photographed by “Ringers: Lord of the Fans” Director of Photography Josh Mandel with sound support by Mikey Murray and edited by Galaphil and Lyra.
