One of the many side-chararacters we see in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, is Krugarr.

The redskinned alien Krugarr casting a spell

But looking them up on Wikipedia and IMDB there's no actor listed.

Even previous questions here has failed to find out who Krugarr was played by: Who were the other Ravager captains?

1 Answer 1


Krugarr is not played by anyone

According to Cinema Blend, they're a purely CGI creation, without any recorded use of motion capture.

Of all the original Guardians of the Galaxy team members introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Krugarr was the only one who wasn't represented by a specific actor, as he remains an entirely CGI character for now.

    Where does it say that they didn't use mo-cap?

    @valorum, how do you use mo-cap without an actor? If there's no actor, there can be no mo-cap.

    Well, off the top of my head the animator could have mo-capped themselves. Or multiple people could have contributed to the motion capture. "wasn't represented by a specific actor" could indicate that multiple actors were involved.

  • @valorum I think they would become the defacto actor in that case. It's a good question though.
