Why does Smeagol have a weird voice?

And the voice really came about by thinking of involuntary reactions. He’s trapped in his throat, from this moment in time where he kills his cousin, so it’s like Tourette’s, an involuntary spasm. And I noticed how Tolkien describes Gollum in various animalistic ways, and one of those is a cat.

Andy Serkis played the role of Gollum in the LOTR trilogy and reprised it in the first Hobbit movie, An Unexpected Journey. Andy Serkis owned the character of Gollum in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy so much so that it is hard to imagine anyone else in the role.

How did Andy Serkis lose his arm?

He was in possession of vibranium that both the Avengers and Ultron were after, and he lost his left arm after he called Ultron “one of Stark’s.” Since Ultron isn’t exactly the most mentally stable of villains, he reacted by cutting Klaue’s arm off in one swoop.

Was Smeagol based on gurgi?
