“I experienced true poverty as a child after my father died, so that’s from my point of view. It was a huge irony that I was playing one of the richest men in the world. I’m an unabashed socialist, and the cautious side of Succession is important to me,” he points out.
“I believe in practice. Logan Roy was a great role, but I just stopped halfway through. It’s not the final destination. I’m very happy, but for others. I have to work even harder to convince them that I’m actually an actor.”
