Starting from humble beginnings as a British stage actor, Andy Serkis has evolved into one of the world's most recognized character actors, taking on some of the most beloved (and despised) roles in recent memory.

Leo the Lion loves being the center of attention. Though they often have the most genuine hearts, Leos struggle to stay humble and are naturally attracted to drama.
Serkis portrayed English new wave musician Ian Dury, a polio survivor and the confidently eccentric lead singer of Ian Dury & the Blockheads, in the biographical film Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll. Dury basks in the spotlight and becomes more confident the more popular he gets. As his audience grows, so does his drive for attention.

Virgos are detail-oriented and have a tendency to over-analyze every situation. They often make great teachers and listeners because of their ability to problem-solve and their drive for serving and supporting others.
Baloo, the lovable bear as played by Serkis in the Netflix Original Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, is Mowgli's no-nonsense mentor, constantly testing and pushing Mowgli to learn how to survive in the wild, unforgiving jungle. He never misses a detail, and though he appears soft, he has no patience for mistakes that could lead Mowgli to his end.

Scorpios are dealers of mystery and revenge. They're often described as having a dark side because even the Scorpios who choose the light crave power and control and are sensitive to other's emotions, allowing them to read people better than any other sign.
Supreme Leader Snoke is the menacing ruler of the First Order in the third and final Star Wars saga. Snoke uses the force to manipulate Kylo Ren, drawing him to the dark side by preying on his emotions. He is sensitive to the true nature of those around him, and is able to convince Darth Vader's grandson to do his bidding because of the power he evokes over Kylo's confused sensibilities.
