Succession actor’s interview interrupted by Brian Cox ‘screaming’ at photographers at season 4 premiere
Fisher Stevens suggested Brian Cox was embodying his character
Brian Cox was heard “screaming” at photographers during his co-star Fisher Stevens’ interview with Deadline at the season four premiere of Succession.
Brian, 76, has played Logan Roy in the HBO drama since 2018. His character is known for the catchphrase “f*** off” and the Scottish actor was seemingly embodying this when he began shouting at nearby photographers.
“That’s Brian screaming,” said Fisher, 59, when shouts erupted during his interview.
“He’s having a good time. He’s enjoying his final premiere of the show. Sorry, that was interesting. I wonder who he’s screaming at?”
The actor then added he thought Brian must have been joking with someone, saying: “And he’s not serious. He’s not real. He’s having fun. He’s Logan! He can do whatever the f*** he wants.”
According to Deadline, a representative at the premiere corroborated Fisher’s thoughts, saying: “Oh, he was just joking.”
However, Brian told Deadline at the after party the full story.
“There’s always this problem with photographers: They’re like go right, right, right, and I was like, ‘Get your f***king s**t together!’,” he said.
Brian, who is known for speaking his mind, talked about “a cultural clash” in a separate interview.
“I don’t put up with all that American s***,” he said. “I’m sorry. All that sort of ‘I think, therefore I feel.’”
The fourth season of Succession begins on HBO on 26 March and on Sky Atlantic on March 27.
