    Gollum

    One of Serkis' biggest breaks was when he was cast as Gollum in the Peter Jackson-directed Lord of the Rings trilogy, a role he would play in both The Two Towers and Return of the King. The role of Gollum, made possible through the use of performance capture technology, was the first of its kind, garnering acclaim for both Jackson and Serkis. This role was the foundation for a long lasting friendship and working relationship between he and Peter Jackson.

    Serkis would later return to the role of Gollum in 2012's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

    King Kong

    Serkis played the rough-and-tumble character of Captain Haddock in the Steven Spielberg-directed, Peter Jackson-produced film The Adventures of Tintin, an animated adaptation of the Hergé classic.

    Caesar

    In 2011, Serkis played the main character of Caesar in the film Rise of the Planet of the Apes. A reboot of the Planet of the Apes franchise, this film followed the birth of the ape revolution and the growth of its leader, Caesar.

    In 2014, he reprised his role as Caesar in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The film picks up years after the previous one, seeing Caesar as a father and grizzled leader, struggling to maintain control of his burgeoning clan of intelligent apes as well as peace between human and ape.

    He returned again in 2017 in War for the Planet of the Apes.

    This role, yet again, garnered more attention for both Serkis and performance capture technology.

    Ulysses Klaue

    Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Serkis played the villain Ulysses Klaue in the 2015 film Avengers: Age of Ultron. Ironically, despite the extensive use of CGI and performance capture in the film, Serkis' character was portrayed solely through traditional acting.

    In 2018, Serkis reprised his role as Klaue in Black Panther.

    Serkis plays Supreme Leader Snoke in the Star Wars sequel trilogy starting with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he was killed by Kylo Ren and Kylo Ren became the new Supreme Leader. It was revealed that Snoke was a clone of Palpatine.

    Alfred Pennyworth

    In 2022's The Batman, Serkis plays Alfred Pennyworth.
