Brian Cox (the Scottish actor, not the Scottish astrophysicist) has worked on stage and TV since the early 1960s. A classically trained Shakespearean performer, he has multiple accolades, including Oliviers, Emmys, Golden Globes, Screen Actor Guild awards, not to mention an Order of the British Empire. However, the current role making him a household name is that of Logan Roy, the patriarch in HBO's hit series Succession, a British-ish show written and directed by the U.K.'s Jesse Armstrong and inspired by the Murdoch clan's News of the World scandal, which gripped the British public in the early 2010s.

Succession's fourth season debuted on March 26, 2023. It was announced as its final run of episodes, which was a telling declaration, as the series — which is about Logan's three children by his second wife (Harriet Walter) fighting for the right to succeed their father as CEO of the company he built, Waystar RoyCo — could only end when their sire passed. With his death scene all but certain and the series debut timed perfectly for Emmy voters, the campaign to promote this as one of the crowning glories of his career is already on.

To that end, he sat with Scottish TV and radio presenter Amy Irons for an hour-long interview about his life and career. That special, An Interview with Brian Cox, will stream in the U.S. on BritBox. Check out the trailer below.

Here's the special's logline:

Award-winning actor Brian Cox (Succession, King Lear) sits down for an exclusive, in-depth interview on his life and career. From his early years in Scotland and Shakespearean beginnings to his contemporary roles across film and television, no stone is unturned in this heartfelt interview with the iconic actor.

Among the films, theater performances, and TV show appearances Cox discusses in the interview: King Lear, Titus Andronicus, and The Taming of The Shrew, among other Shakespearean roles, Strange Interlude (for which he won his first Olivier Award), Rob Roy, Braveheart, Nuremberg (for which he won his first Primetime Emmy in 2001), The Bourne Identity, X2, The Escpaist (for which he won his first BAFTA), Troy, Deadwood, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Good Omens, and of course, Succession.

An Interview With Brian Cox premieres on Tuesday, April 11, 2023, which gives everyone time to catch up on the major spoilers in the Succession Season 4, Episode 3, which debuted the Sunday prior to the special's arrival.
