Andy Serkis on 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey'

The Hobbit star Andy Serkis on reprising his role of Gollum and being asked by Peter Jackson to direct the second unit in New Zealand. 

Recalling a memorable Comic-Con moment he added, “I did get severely grabbed by a young girl during The Return of the King, she was basically kind of overwhelmed that she had come across the actor that played Gollum and she put her arms around my neck and then just didn’t let go, and wouldn’t let go."
