Succession star Brian Cox believes that the character he plays on the show, Logan Roy, would tell him to "shut the f*** up" if the pair were to meet in real life.

Cox has played Roy to huge critical acclaim for three-and-a-bit seasons so far following the premiere in June of 2018.

He has won the Golden Globe Award for Outstanding Leading Actor in a Drama Series for his work. The character of Logan Roy is the brash, ruthless owner and leader of a media juggernaut who is more concerned with the future of his business than his relationship with his family.

Cox believes the main difference between himself and Roy is that the latter is a pessimist, while he himself is an optimist, but that both have a "deep disappointment in the human experience."

“I think things would get better and he doesn’t so Logan would hate me,” he previously said at the Edinburgh TV Festival.

“He would say ‘I wish that Brian Cox would just shut the f*ck up’.”

Cox says he does "respect" Roy as a character, however.

“Unlike Trump or Murdoch he’s self made,” he continued.

“He did it all himself. He’s a misanthrope, is kind of unhappy and his curse is he loves his children. I’ve grown to have enormous respect for him even though he is the antithesis of who I am.”

In the third episode of season three, Logan Roy dramatically died of a suspected heart attack, leaving the Roy children devastated.

The episode, titled 'Connor's Wedding', has been lauded as one of the greatest episodes in television history.
