Brian Cox on his Work Experience on ‘Succession’: With the premiere of its season finale, ‘Succession’ left a hole in our hearts. While following despicable minds trying to dictate the way the world works, the show became a highly resonating drama for more than one reason. The core of it is its family drama where the family patriarch – Logan Roy, played by Brian Cox. His commanding presence as the menacing Logan Roy became the backbone of the show.
It seems like we are not the only ones in awe of the show’s brilliance. After the series finale, Brian Cox took his love for the HBO series to Instagram. He shared his praise for the cast and crew in an Instagram story and called his experience filming Succession ‘the greatest work experience’ in his long-winding career.

Cox had also spoken about his death in the final season’s third episode. He had said that his character was written out ‘too early.’ Cox said, “I was fine with it ultimately, but I did feel a little bit rejected. You know, I felt a little bit, oh, all the work I’ve done, and finally, I’m going to, you know, end up as an ear on a carpet of a plane.
However, the veteran actor acknowledged that the creator Jesse Armstrong, handled Logan’s death brilliantly by killing him off-screen. He says that he mistakenly thought it was a form of rejection from the showrunners.
