Brian Cox teases Succession future during Tartan Week celebrations

Scottish actor says he still doesn't know if the fourth season will be the last one for the hit US drama.

Brian Cox says his future in the hit US television drama Succession hangs in the balance.

Speaking to STV News in New York, the Dundee-born actor says he’s yet to learn the fate of his character Logan Roy in the show’s fourth series.

He said: “I need to have a have a meeting with our writer, producer director, show-runner, the genius Jesse Armstrong in May and all will be revealed.

“So I still don’t know if this is going to be the last season or not, if I’m going to die in episode one or not. I mean, even if I die in episode one, they still have to pay me for eight episodes, so that won’t be bad.”

Cox also spoke about the impact of Scots stateside as the Big Apple was transformed for Tartan Week celebrations.

He said: “What is interesting about this country is what the Celtic influence has done. It’s been free in a way that it’s not been free in our country and they have contributed so much.

“I mean, Alexander Graham Bell came from Edinburgh, but it was here that he invented the telephone and it was here that he was given the space in which to do it. So in a way, this is what’s great about this country.”
