Succession actor Brian Cox has revealed that when he took on the role of Logan Roy he knew that it was something remarkable. 

Speaking to Ryan Tubridy on RTE Radio 1, the actor said: "I've been in this business for nearly 60 years and I got the taste, got the sense of it and thought 'this is it'...I feel I've got my just desserts now and that's courtesy of Logan Roy."

Cox won a Golden Globe playing the role of the founder and patriarch of media and entertainment conglomerate Waystar Royco

In the first season, Roy falls very ill and his despicable children plot and clamour all over each other to take over the family business.

Cox claims that the third season is better than the first and second, saying: "I think that it has upped the game even more. I think the third season is going to be something quite extraordinary."

Season three of the hit show was in pre-production before the Covid-19 outbreak and as of yet no transmission date has been announced.
