"Master is our friend! / You don't have any friends; nobody likes you." Gollum
Played By: Andy Serkis
Film: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Return of the King
Why He's On The List: Similarly to Yoda, our first fascination with Gollum is with his appearance and his strange speech pattern (as well as being a digitally imposed character), but as the second instalment of Lord Of The Rings progresses, it becomes apparent that he's not one person, but two. It's all galvanised by one fascinating, heartbreaking, classic scene, but Serkis' performance continues to consistently display the demented halfling's highly volatile state.
Finest Hour: His two personalities arguing over Frodo's sincerity and fate.
