The Spotlight: Andy Serkis 'excited' about secrecy surrounding Snoke, 'It's going to be revealed'

You have to know going in you're not going to get much out of Andy Serkis when it comes to "Star Wars," but in a world of ambiguous sci-fi epics we have to take what we can get. 

The fact that we *will* apparently learn the identity of the most mysterious character in the "Star Wars" universe is certainly encouraging.

No one is enjoying watching us twist in the wind more than Supreme Leader Snoke himself, Andy Serkis. 

"It's exciting because it's going to be revealed, of course," Serkis told Kristopher Tapley of Playback.

"It'll all come out. All I can say is that Rian [Johnson] has done an incredible job with this movie. I think people are going to be very surprised in which direction this goes."

Serkis also confirmed that "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is much more character-driven than its predecessor "The Force Awakens."

Serkis is no stranger to massive franchises. He's played major roles in "Lord of the Rings," "Planet of the Apes" as well being a regular in Marvel's Cinematic Universe as Ulysses "Klaw" Klaue.

As for "Star Wars," Serkis is thrilled just to be involved.

"Amazing," Serkis said of his experince. "I mean it is incredible. I feel very very privileged to be involved in all of these great franchises but this was ... you know. "Star Wars" is "Star Wars."

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" opens Dec. 15.
