Succession: Brian Cox thinks Logan Roy was written out too early

Succession star Brian Cox thinks that his character of Logan Roy was written out of the HBO series too early.

The series finale of Succession is just a few days away. The story of the Roy dynasty will conclude, but that story came to an end for one character several weeks ago. While speaking with BBC’s Amol Rajan (via Deadline), Brian Cox commented on the surprise death of his character Logan Roy near the beginning of the final season of Succession.

Brian Cox feels as though Logan’s death was “ultimately too early,” and that it might have been more appropriate for that departure to happen later in the season. “I was fine with it ultimately, but I did feel a little bit rejected,” Cox said. “You know, I felt a little bit like 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.

Brian Cox added that he showed up to his character’s funeral “on [his] own volition” in order to throw off the paparazzi. He also flirted with the idea that Logan Roy might still be alive. “If you think about it, from Logan’s point of view, he has to find out, how are his children going to behave when he dies, what will then happen?” Cox said. “And the only way to do that is to fake his death and actually, at some distant point he’s observing the chaos that is following.” When asked if this might foretell a surprise return from the dead in the Succession finale, Brian Cox said, “No… I’m just saying that could have been a supposition.

Succession explores themes of power and family dynamics through the eyes of patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and his four grown children, Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Siobhan (Sarah Snook), Roman (Kieran Culkin), and Connor (Alan Ruck). The fourth and final season finds the sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson moving ever closer. The prospect of this seismic sale provokes existential angst and familial division among the Roys as they anticipate what their lives will look like once the deal is complete. A power struggle ensues as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed.

The series finale of Succession will air on HBO on May 28th. The show’s composer, Nicholas Britell, has said that the finale is 90 minutes long, and I’m sure fans will savour every minute.
