Succession ’s Jesse Armstrong On The Dangers Of Creating Unsavoury Characters: “You Have To be Careful” – LFF

A day after the European premiere of season three of his hit Sky series Succession at the London Film Festival , the show’s creator, Jesse Armstrong , took to the stage with comedian Nish Kumar to di…

The Thick Of Itand its 2009 big-screen spin off InThe Loop.Related StoryThe writer was effusive about the return ofSuccessionbut sketchy on the details; suffice to say that U.S. media giants the Roy family are still at war with one another, with patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox), seeing his company face scandal and ruin amid allegations of serious misconduct in the ranks.

Armstrong acknowledged that Rupert Murdoch was the original inspiration for the show.“I read a lot about Rupert Murdoch and his family, but I couldn’t get it away,” he said. “It was like a TV play or a single drama, and then whenPeep Showwas ending, I started to think about other projects. I watched a documentary about the Dursts [

The Jinx], I read about Sumner Redstone, another big American magnate, and I read Tom Bower’s Robert Maxwell book, as well as some stuff about Hearst.“I started reading about media moguls in general, and Sumner Redstone and Rupert Murdoch both made the same joke: they both were asked, ‘What will happen when you die?’ and they both said they didn’t plan to die. It just struck me: what’s going on with these men in their 80s and 90s who are still packing their diaries every day? I felt that was something quite basic there about feeling a loss of influence at the end of your life, so I started to think there was a show about what those people are like in general.” headtopics.com

In case anyone was wondering whether the new series might finally spell the end for Logan Roy, Armstrong hinted otherwise.“I originally thought Logan Roy might die at the end of the first episode,” he recalled, “then I thought he might die at the end of the first series, but those thoughts were never definitive, they were just vague feelings. And as soon as I started writing it, I knew he shouldn’t die at the end of the first episode, and as soon as I was in the writers’ room for the first season I knew he shouldn’t die at the end of the first season – he is the planet, the sun they all revolve around. It might be fascinating one day to find out what happens when that goes, but not yet.”

Asked whether he felt responsibility for the cult status afforded his more unsavoury characters – as well as Logan Roy, there is alsoThe Thick Of It’s foul-mouthed Malcolm Trucker – Armstrong was unrepentant.“You have to be careful,” he noted. “You have to be able to stand behind what you write and believe in it. For example, Logan Roy: it occurred to me that some people who watch

Successiondon’t take to it because they find the people … not nice. And what’s interesting is that people who watch it more, I don’t think they find the people nice but they find them not unwatchable. And I don’t think that’s because their actions, objectively, are becoming any nicer, it’s because, like someone you know in real life, you come to know more about them and why they act the way they do. Does that excuse them? Well, that’s a question, I think, that’s legitimate to throw back on the audience. It’s like Jonathan Swift’s

A Modest Proposal: if you think that’s a recipe book, that’s not on the author, that’s on you. You’ve got to trust the audience, and hopefully if you do interesting work you’ll get an audience that are interested and engaged, But if they go out thinking, ‘Ra-ra-ra, I wanna be like Malcolm Tucker,’ then at a certain point you can’t take responsibility for that person. That person’s just a moron.” headtopics.com

Roman is such a DB but the character is so well crafted and Kieran does fantastic job of making him an anti-hero. So much so that sometimes you forget that they’re actors acting. This cast is great. nocontextroyco I wasn't aware of how excited I was for Succession Season 3 😨😨

Why Cousin Greg is the best character on 'Succession'He's the closest thing to a moral center this family has, and that still isn't saying a lot. El mejor! Never seen it but I keep getting told to watch it. There is one character, the obnoxious son, which prevents me from watching the show. Totally annoying and I avoid that show like kryptonite.
