‘Succession’ star Sarah Snook pregnant with first child


NEW YORK (AP) — “Succession” star Sarah Snook had a surprising revelation during the show’s season four premiere — she’s pregnant with her first child.

Snook proudly showed off her New York baby bump at Monday’s premiere, which was attended by fellow stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Matthew MacFadyen, Kieran Culkin and Alan Ruck.

Snook’s pregnancy is the latest surprise for “Succession” fans, who learned in February from series creator Jesse Armstrong that the show’s fourth season would be its last.

“Succession” follows a wealthy family that owns a large media conglomerate and struggles to maintain its power. It stars Cox as the patriarch of the Roy family and Snook as his only daughter among the kids who conspire to succeed their father as the company’s leader.

Snook married actor-comedian Dave Lawson in 2021.

“Succession” has won 13 Emmy Awards to date, including several for Armstrong for writing and two awards for drama series. The final season will premiere on March 26.
