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. From the troubled Gollum to the gargantuan King Kong, Serkis has also established himself as a groundbreaking motion-capture performer.
With such a wide variety of performances under his belt, Serkis has covered the spectrum of astrological signs. From the classic stubbornness of Taurus to the pointed savagery of Scorpio, there's an Andy Serkis character for every zodiac sign.

Prone to getting swept away on quests and journeys, Ariens like to turn heads with their leadership. They are very good at planning, but are also fairly impatient and are always looking for their next project.
William Hare is the epitome of the adventurous spirit of Aries. Although his moral compass is a little skewed, he is always seeking the next available gig and is quick to say yes to just about anything.

Geminis are famous for their two-sided nature, often reserving one personality for themselves, and one for everyone else. They are masters at manipulating their outward perception when people are around, and their mood can change as quickly as their personality.
Gollum's tragic transformation in the Lord of the Rings franchise mirrors that of a Gemini. He goes from the humble creature Smeagol to the dastardly, swamp-dwelling Gollum. In several cut-away scenes, Gollum teeters between his two personalities in a constant moral battle between right and wrong, possessed by his quest for the One Ring and struggling against his gentle nature.
