Proof That the Stars of Succession Much Less Miserable Their Characters

3 min read

Even though Succession ended Sunday night with a series finale that resulted in betrayal, resignation and helplessness for the beleaguered Roy siblings, the stars themselves seemed to be having fun behind the scenes.

Of course, it never hurts when an actor’s last filming dates are in Barbados.

Stars Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook flew to the tropical paradise to film several pivotal scenes in which siblings Kendall (Strong), Roman (Culkin) and Shiv (Snook) determined which of them would be a fairly suitable CEO for Waystar Royco. It was the siblings’ last action to preserve the legacy and the company of their father Logan (Brian Cox) from the erratic and interloping Swedish technological brother Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård).

while the dialogue and the drama were deep, between the scenes, the trio found moments to let go.

Snook — who revealed during the show’s season 4 premiere in March that she was expecting her first child with husband Dave Lawson — went swimming during the day with the crew in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. (We can say that it was slightly less tense than the night dive of Shiv, Roman and Kendall.)

The 35-year-old Australian actress alongside writer and creator Jesse Armstrong and members of the cast and crew of an alternative rock classic from the 90s: “Say It Ain’t So.”(The phrase from the song “The son drowns in the overflow” seems especially relevant given the aquatic motif of the seasons of “the elder” Kendall.)

The subtext of a cast karaoke on Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” speaks for itself.

Elsewhere Culkin, 40, embraced director Mark Mylod for a cuddly photo.

As the filming neared its bittersweet end, the stars capture one of the most joyful moments of their characters from the entire series in front of the camera.

After Shiv and Roman decided to “anoint” Kendall the future CEO, they naturally hazed him by mixing a “meal fit for a king.”The revolting smoothie includes everything from bread “knobbies” and pickles to Tabasco, cocoa powder, milk and raw eggs — and even Snook spit.
Strong, 44, revealed after the episode aired that he actually drank the concoction, saying on the official HBO Estate podcast: “We only did it a few times, then I went out and got nauseous, and I jumped in the ocean, and I washed it out of my hair.”

After the scene was over, Strong decided to shave his head, probably to (literally) get rid of his character.
