Brian Cox Believes That The Turn in The Fourth Season of “Heirs” Happened “Too Soon”


Brian Cox suggested that the main twist in the fourth season of “Heirs” happened “too soon.”

The actor was referring to the third episode of the fourth and final season of the popular HBO series, in which Cox’s character Logan Roy suddenly lost consciousness and died during a flight to meet Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgard) in Sweden.

Logan’s death, which occurred off-screen, served as a major shake-up for the show, forcing his children to struggle to take over the Waystar Royco.

Cox admitted that the twist was executed “pretty brilliantly”, but that, in his opinion, creator Jesse Armstrong “decided to make Logan die, I think, ultimately, too soon.”

In an interview with BBC correspondent Amol Rajan, the actor said that he initially considered the decision to kill Logan “mistakenly as a form of refusal.”

“In the end, it suited me, but I felt a little rejected. I thought a little bit, ‘Oh, how much work I’ve done,'” Cox said.

In a separate interview, Barley Cox echoed those feelings, saying he was “fine with what happened and happy to finish,” but added that he “would have done it later.”

He explained: “In my opinion, it’s strange to be missing the main character so early, but in such situations we remain hostages of the screenwriters.”

Elsewhere, Fisher Stevens recently revealed that he wrote a side story for his character Heir Hugo Baker.

Stevens played Hugo, the head of Waystar RoyCo, in the second, third and fourth seasons of the HBO series.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actor said that he had written an unofficial story about Hugo’s future, and the show should end this month.

“I do it whenever I get a role. I’m writing a biography,” he said. — And yes, Hugo has a plan.

“I can’t tell you the plan because I don’t want to reveal it. But I think he will succeed.”
