Actor Andy Serkis confirms the fan theory in an interview with Starwars.com.
Shortly after episode 11 of Andor, there were many fan theories as to the fate of Andy Serkis’ Kino Loy. Some thought Kino might be the progenitor of Serkis’ other Star Wars character Snoke from the sequel trilogy. But the biggest question was did Kino escape from prison? Well it seems Andor’s Andy Serkis has fueled the fire of this popular fan theory.
Does Andy Serkis think Kino Loy escaped? answered
In a recent interview with Starwars.com, actor Andy Serkis pretty much confirms the theory that Kino Loy didn’t escape Narkina 5 prison. The theory was that Loy sacrificed himself and helped the other prisoners, leading and inspiring them to escape when he knew he couldn’t because he couldn’t swim.
The interview spans a wide range of topics related to the character of Kino Loy. One of the first things to be addressed was the Snoke speculation and possible connections to Serkis stating:
“I was a little apprehensive because when I got into it I was like, ‘Oh no, no, the snoke theories are just going crazy!'”. But then Serkis discusses his reaction to early discussions about the role with questions like “Is that Snoke?” Has he returned?” His concerns were allayed when he sat down with Andor creator Tony Gilroy to discuss the character, which pretty much trashed that theory.
Serkis goes so far as to use a similar description of Loy contained in the theory, “This is a man who cares about others. And he suddenly finds himself in a world where he has to keep his head down, not tell his truth and just try to get through his sentence, believing that he will be released.”
However, the harsh endorsement is laid out by Serkis in his summary of all the things that went into shaping the character, saying that he knew Kino would never escape but would still inspire the others to do so.
All of these things really helped shape the character, from the writing to the design to the conversations we had. And then of course to understand that I knew where he was going to end up, knowing that even if he has to keep inspiring others to do so, he’s never really going to get out of this. There’s a lot of pathos in the role and I really enjoyed playing that, but always keeping him down to earth so it doesn’t get sentimental.

We still don’t know anything for sure about Kino Loy, and even if that theory holds water, it doesn’t answer the question of whether he’s still alive.
