The character of Supreme Leader Snoke in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” remains a big mystery. As the latest trailer gave a glimpse of the First Order’s leader out of the hologram, fans are now further excited to see more of him on the big screen.

Speaking about the new teaser, Andy Serkis, the actor behind Snoke, talked about the eighth movie’s darker tone and the tension it has built since the clip’s release. Also, he spoke about his character and working with the film’s director Rian Johnson.

“I thought the trailer was spectacular and very intense,” Andy Serkis said about the epic “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” teaser in an interview with IGN.

The 53-year-old actor teased that the movie is going to surprise the fans with its different storyline, tale, and the tension it has to give. He even praised the eighth movie director, Rian Johnson, for his take on the movie. “He’s again, a fine, fine director,” he continued to say. He described that the 43-year-old filmmaker has owned the “Star Wars” universe with “The Last Jedi” and he, too, is a great actor and director.

Serkis further said that Johnson is really inspiring, thus he loved spending time with him on the set of “Episode 8.” He also believed that Johnson has created a real “amazing movie.”

When asked about Supreme Leader Snoke’s real relationship with his apprentice, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and how will Rey (Daisy Ridley) be fitted to the villain’s evil plans, he chose to keep mum about it.

“That’s so confidential I can’t possibly talk about it,” he elaborated. Although he really wanted to say the real deal about the three major characters, he apologized because he can’t say anything but teased that moviegoers will be definitely onto something good.

In an interview with Business Insider, Andy Serkis revealed how he perfectly portrayed Supreme Leader Snoke’s character.

The actor-director didn’t just simply lend his voice to the supreme leader, but he also did a lot of motion capture technology. He also had to do his facial movements, so he could reveal the antagonist’s emotions with his every move. He revealed that when he first worked on with this role, the character was still under development.

This didn’t just involve its physical features but also, its pain, aggression, and emotions it had to display. These feelings can evidently be noticed via his huge scar on his face. “For me, it was a fracturing,” he thought. He went on to say that although it might be painful for his character to speak, he continued to be superior. He was clearly damaged, but he had some vulnerability in him that he was trying to hide and that's what Serkis was doing.
