Kendall Roy does what he wants, sometimes to his own detriment. The actor playing him can do the same.

After the now infamous December New Yorker profile on Jeremy Strong – which detailed his intense acting methods and drew polarizing reactions – the actor Succession co-star Brian Cox it is said that the whole article “was Jeremy’s idea”

“He pushed for it…and people kept advising him about it,” Cox said in an interview with Deadline. “In a way, he got lifted by that, and I think that was unfortunate.”

He added: “I think he should never have gone that route because playing [his Succession character] Kendall put him in a very vulnerable position.”

While Cox, 75, admits Strong’s work on the show is brilliant, he also finds it exhausting.

“Particularly exhausting for him, but it’s also exhausting for the rest of us at times,” he said. “But we support him because we love him and because the result is always extraordinary, which he does, but at the same time, there’s the double-edged sword that goes with it.”
