Brian Cox is one who rarely shuts up. His memoir includes devastating everyone from Steven Seagal to Quentin Tarantino and Johnny Depp. Be successor Son Jeremy Strong knows exactly what he thinks of his approach to acting. But is he the kind of person who tells people to fuck off with the same frequency as Logan Roy? He is not. And now that he’s done with the show, he won’t even fail to say so.
In a new interview with Variety, the legendary Scottish actor – who eventually achieved household name status as the domineering family man of Succession – echoed the statements of other actors, including some of the stranger things Cast happy their shows are coming to an end.
“American shows live well past their sell-out dates: this one won’t. HBO would love us to stay this long game of Thrones, but thank God it’s not going to happen,” he said. “I would find it hard to say ‘F*ck off’ to people in the next 10 years, even though it’s the most beautiful thing to say to someone. You can really say how you feel.”
Cox wasn’t even sentimental when the show ended. “I didn’t feel anything when I played the last scene [on ‘Succession’]. Nothing! It was the last scene, finito.” He even teased the ending. “Logan absolutely gets what he needs. That’s the great thing about the show. He gets peace, which is good.”
successor returns for its fourth and final season on March 26 on HBO and HBO Max.
