Succession killed me off too early, says Brian Cox

Details of Logan’s death were a well-kept secret, which Cox said he played a part in by appearing on set to “film” scenes he was not required to be in.

Cox said he had gone “on (his) own volition” so that members of the paparazzi attending the shoot would not become suspicious.

In the BBC interview, he also told Rajan that he thinks Logan might still be alive.

“I still believe this, maybe Logan isn’t dead. This could be part of an elaborate ruse to find out,” he said.

‘Fake his death’

“If you think about it, from Logan’s point of view, he has to find out how are his children going to behave when he dies, what will then happen?

“The only way to do that is to fake his death and actually, at some distant point, he’s observing the chaos that is following.”

But he added that the character would not “come back from the dead”, saying: “I’m just saying that could have been a supposition.”

During the interview, Cox also reflected on his childhood, his career, his thoughts on Scottish independence and why he supports the writer’s strike in Hollywood.

The full interview, Brian Cox: Amol Rajan Interviews, is on BBC Two on Thursday May 25 at 7pm and on BBC iPlayer.
