Taking to Instagram, the 76-year-old Scot said that his role as Logan Roy on Succession was the greatest work experience that he’s had during his five-decade-long career.
“We have now come to the end. And what has been, in my career, certainly the greatest work experience ever,” wrote on an Instagram story.
“The harmony between crew and cast was truly amazing. It was on it’s [sic] way to become a great series but the Love and commitment from crew to cast and writers, made it memorable. I would like to thank all of us in the making and creating of this show from the very bottom of my heart.”
Cox’s comments about his experience on Succession aren’t all that he’s said in the wake of its conclusion, as he also sounded off on the fate of his character (warning: spoilers for season 4 of Succession will follow).
“I was fine with it ultimately, but I did feel a little bit rejected,” Cox said of Logan Roy’s unceremonious death in the third episode of season four. “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.”
It certainly shouldn’t be a surprise that Cox holds such a reverence for Succession, as the series turned him into a star in his 70s. Granted, while Cox has long been a widely-respected Shakespearean actor that has starred as Hannibal Lecter, X-Men villains, and Bourne movie heavies, Succession has made him a household name.
In addition to Cox as Logan Roy, Succession stars Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun, Alexander Skarsgård, Cherry Jones, Zoe Winters, Hope Davis, Justin Kirk, J. Smith-Cameron, and more.
All four seasons of the critically-acclaimed Emmy-winning series are currently streaming on Max.
