What did Brian Cox say about becoming known as Logan Roy?

In an interview with diversityCox spoke to actress Emily Blunt about acting. Earlier in the interview, Blunt asked Cox if people treated him differently for playing the intimidating role of Logan Roy on Succession. The actor noted that “it’s a problem” now that he’s “the ‘Fuck Off’ man” — referencing a phrase his character on the HBO series said a lot.

“It’s a problem,” said Cox. “I’ve been doing this for 60 years, but now I’m the ‘Fuck Off’ man. It has its charm. But being a cultural icon isn’t easy. As they say in Scotland, it is an awfully big job for an ordinary boy.”
