Andy Serkis's Star Wars role revealed...

Despite being the main voice in the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, until now we had no idea who Andy Serkis was actually playing in the latest visit to a galaxy far, far away. Wonder no longer - Lucasfilm and Disney have unveiled via starwars.com that he is "Supreme Leader Snoke" and a photo released shows the actor in full motion capture get-up.

The Force Awakens hits UK cinemas on 16th December.
