Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes Star Owen Teague Met With the Lead of Previous Films


Owen Teague had the opportunity to converse with his character’s on-screen father for the upcoming movie, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes. This film will be the fourth part of the reboot series. Teague is portraying Cornelius, the son of Ceaser (Andy Serkis), who is an ape messianic figure from the three previous entries of the Planet of the Apes franchise. In his interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Teague shared that he and everyone else got the chance to talk to Serkis.


\”He and I had a meeting, and he was part of why I became an actor. So this was something that I’d been wanting to do my entire life, and it was literally a dream come true to get to do this job and play this character. The hardest part about it was just learning how to be in a suit all day and have a camera strapped to your head.\”

Serkis, an experienced motion-capture actor, advised Teague that he would \”get used to it and [he’ll] stop worrying about it after the first week.\” Teague found that playing a motion-capture character was liberating and something he adapted to quickly. He hopes to do more of it in the future.

Teague found it easy to visualize things that weren’t there, thanks to director Wes Ball’s visual guidance. According to the actor, Ball was able to \”paint a picture\” for them. Teague also credits the supportive cast as a factor that made filming easy.

\”I’m trying not to say any character names, but when I looked at other actors on set, I would see what I believed in my head to be this mix between them. So we didn’t think of ourselves as human by the end of it. We called ourselves ‘the apes.’ We were the apes. So it was very realized for everyone, and we also created a very detailed world for ourselves.\”

Teague has high hopes for Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, as it is the first movie that he can visualize easily. In the past, he has had doubts about how a project would turn out after filming was done, but this time he feels confident that they have created something amazing.

\”God, I’m gonna look pretty stupid if it sucks, but I have complete confidence in everyone who’s working on that film.\”

Owen Teague got to talk to his character’s film father for Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes. The latest film will be the fourth installment of the reboot franchise.

Serkis, who has a lot of experience with motion capture work, told Teague that he’ll “get used to it and [he’ll] stop worrying about it after the first week.’ And he was absolutely right.” Teague went on to say that playing a motion capture character was something that he took to very quickly. He found it very freeing and something you don’t think about because being the inhuman character you’re playing becomes another costume. Teague hopes to do more of it someday.

Thanks to Wes Ball, the director, having to act with things that weren’t there was also easy for Teague to visualize. As explained by the actor, Ball was “visual” and “could paint this picture for us.” An additional thing that made filming easy was how the cast was so supportive of one another.

“I’m trying not to say any character names, but when I looked at other actors on set, I would see what I believed in my head to be this mix between them. So we didn’t think of ourselves as human by the end of it. We called ourselves “the apes.” We were the apes. So it was very realized for everyone, and we also created a very detailed world for ourselves.”

Because of that, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is the first movie that was easy for Teague to visualize. According to the actor, usually, after shooting stops, he’s like, “Well, who knows how that’s gonna turn out. Half of it is editing.” This time, however, he went, “This is going to be awesome. We made something that’s completely amazing.” At least, that’s something that Teague hopes is true.

“God, I’m gonna look pretty stupid if it sucks, but I have complete confidence in everyone who’s working on that film.”
