FANDOM Andy Serkis Last Jedi interview: Snoke is 'a deeply wounded character'

#1
So after hearing almost nothing about Snoke, it looks like we finally have our first bit of info about him.

Full video and written interview here

There’s been a lot of speculation about Episode VIII‘s enigmatic new villain. With Supreme Leader Snoke only appearing briefly in The Force Awakens, rumours have been rife about who he is and what he wants, but now it looks like we might have our answer.

Speaking to the voice behind him and motion capture actor playing him, Andy Serkis, the actor hinted that Snoke might be a more complex villain than fans expect.

” Snoke’s an awesome character. In this [movie] we get to see him in the flesh more, rather than him just being a 25 foot hologram!
There’s a real darkness to the character..he’s very deeply wounded.. and sort of manipulative and aggressive because of that. He’s a great character.”
Until now we’ve known little about Snoke, with the latest Last Jedi trailer only hinting that he’s trying to recruit a new apprentice.

Now, however, Serkis’ comments help paint a clear picture, revealing that something tragic in Snoke’s past has shaped who he is and helped fuel his dark and mysterious motivations.

What the fuck? He's Mace Windu, obviously! That was the best youtube video theory I saw, at least. Makes him not fully dark or light, which is more interesting than another Sith Lord.

GENERAL!!!!!!

Snoke sucks. TFA sucked. I hope he turns out to be someone totally insignificant like the guy who was trying to sell death sticks to obi wan or something.
