20th Century Fox

Andy Serkis has been a working actor for roughly three decades, thus it comes as no surprise that he has a plethora of fantastic performances under his belt. The British icon's array of feature-length film productions have meant that he is involved with almost every huge franchise in the industry, and he seems to therefore never be out of work. He has earned his position at the top of the acting mountain.

Further from this though, Serkis is a pioneer when it comes to the use of motion-capture. He acts as one of its biggest supporters and the face of the technology. Motion-capture is a film-making style that is poised to remain relevant for a long time. Thus his popularisation of the digital system has not only affected his career but the industry as a whole.

Not satisfied with just being a successful actor and technological contributor, Serkis also directs many projects. He is a film-maker in the purest form and seems to have involvement in every aspect of the industry.

To celebrate his achievements and to look forward to his future, let's examine the best roles that he has had throughout his long career.
