When it comes to ‘performance capture’ he has no equal and has pioneered an art form that has changed the world of acting. While he may in his own way be Hollywood’s best kept secret, legions of fans around the world have been captivated and mesmerised by Andy in having created such memorable characters as King Kong, Gollum and of course, Caesar in thePlanet Of The Apes franchise.”

CinemaCon is at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas,  24-27 March, 2014. Andy will be presented with his award at the gala on 27 March.
