What 7 Creature Performers Looked Like Behind The Scenes | Movies Insider

A creature performer is an actor who moves like a monster or an animal using CGI or practical effects. Buck the dog in “Call of the Wild” and the apes in the “Planet of the Apes” trilogy featured motion capture performers standing-in for digital characters. Other times, like the amphibian man in “The Shape of Water” or Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s portrayal of L3-37 in “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” practical characters were used on set and modified in post production. The process can vary depending on production needs, and can also be seen in Disney’s live-action “Dumbo” and “Beauty and the Beast” remakes, and “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.”
