Brian Cox speaks out on retiring as he admits dementia will get me

Brian Cox discusses his plans for his continued career

Brian Cox joined Uncensored presenter Piers Morgan on Tuesday night to discuss his time as Logan Roy and his future in acting.

Piers asked: “How do you follow something like Succession? Could you imagine retiring or not?”

Brian quipped: “Christ knows! I mean you know, how do I follow that? But no never, I don’t believe in that. I will go on until I drop.

“You sort of wind down slowly and eventually, dementia will get me! Then it will be nice to say, ‘Well I can’t do it anymore’.

“I am hoping I can keep dementia at bay for a bit longer! I mean look at me I’m not old, I am a spring chicken, and I look quite well for my age. I think I look amazing for my age.”

Piers was curious to know how Brian felt when the series was over and asked: “When it was over, really over and the last episode aired and that was the end of Succession, what were your honest feelings about that?”

Brian admitted: “Well my honest feeling is I am incredibly proud to be part of such an extraordinary show and really groundbreaking in many ways.

“It is brilliantly written who knows how to edge, get that sense of edge and I trusted them completely.

“You get all kinds of things, but it is called Succession and you know he has to go at some time.”

Succession ended in May 2023, with Lukas Matsson (played by Alexander Skarsgård) buying the Roy family media company and placing Tom Wambsgans (Matthew Macfadyen) in the lead job.

Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) and Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin) were implied to have no future at the company after their intense dealings with Matsson.

Touching on how he thought the series should have ended, Brian told Screen Rant: “The only one, ironically, who I think he feels could step up was Roman.

“Because Roman showed a lot of sensibility, particularly in dealing with the Middle Eastern money — which was fake, and he knew it, and he could see it in season 2.

“I thought, ‘Wow, there is a potential in Roman’, as I believe there is. That’s why I think Roman really, really loved his father.”
