Succession is an American satirical black comedy-drama television series. The central plot revolves around the Roy family who owns the global media and entertainment conglomerate Waystar RoyCo. This series has won several accolades, including the Golden Globe for Best Television series - Drama, British Television Award for Best International Programme, and The Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama series.
In today's episode, I shall give some trivia about the series that you probably didn't know about. Let's get going then!
1. The beautiful, glossy interiors of the Roy duplex, complete with its white marble floors and ornate decor, is not a real apartment, but a set constructed in Long Island City's Silvercup Studios.
2. Did you know that actor Brian Cox, who plays family patriarch Logan Roy, does not watch his own films and shows? He says that the enterprise is “madly depressing to say the least,"
3. Many of the interactions that the characters have on the show are not scripted. Creator Jesse Armstrong revealed that he encourages his actors to improvise around the script, which he said helped the cast to be more comedic.
4. The wedding sequence for Shiv was filmed at a real English castle. The entire cast flew to England and shot the scene at Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire.
