Summary:
Andy Serkis tells his own story about how a three-week commission to provide a voiceover for Gollum grew into a five-year commitment to breathe life and soul into The Lord of the Rings' most challenging creation. This book examines the transition to the big screen of one of literature's most unforgettable creatures.
