- Viewers can’t stop talking about Succession right now, with one particular scene stealing the limelight in episode one – now, one of the cast has weighed in.
- Now one of the show’s most beloved stars, US actor Nicholas Braun – who is currently on a promo tour in Australia to promote the fourth and final season of the series – has weighed in on the scene that’s gone viral since last week’s season premiere on Binge,
One of the most discussed shows on television currently is Succession, and the first episode of the new season featured a viral handbag scene that may have contributed to its popularity.
During a promotional tour in Australia for the show’s fourth and final season, actor Nicholas Braun, who is one of the series’ most beloved stars, shared his thoughts on the scene that has been trending since the season premiere on Binge last week.
In an exclusive interview with Page Six at the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne on Sunday, Braun expressed his admiration for allowing the internet to take the reins and for letting the show flourish on its own.
In the scene, Cousin Greg, Braun’s character, brings his date Bridget (played by Francesca Root-Dodson) to his uncle Logan Roy’s (Brian Cox) birthday party. At the upscale gathering, Bridget commits a fashion faux pas by sporting an over-the-top Burberry bag in an attempt to fit in, but instead, she appears desperate.
Tom Wambsgans (played by Matthew Macfadyen) immediately calls out Bridget in a private conversation with Greg after noticing her fashion blunder at Logan Roy’s birthday party. Macfadyen’s portrayal of Tom is a scriptwriting masterpiece as he savagely criticizes Bridget’s choice of an excessively large Burberry bag.
Greg is baffled by his family’s mockery of Bridget’s fashion choice, as he believes Burberry is a prestigious brand. In character, Macfadyen delivers a memorable line, “She’s brought a ludicrously capacious bag. What’s even in there, huh? Flat shoes for the subway? Her lunch pail? I mean, Greg, it’s monstrous. It’s gargantuan. You could take it camping. You could slide it across the floor after a bank job.”
At Succession’s recent London premiere, Bolu Babalola, a British author in attendance, shared insight into how the show’s creator, Jesse Armstrong, and his team conducted research to determine the most offensive bag and brand for the scene in question. According to Babalola’s tweet, the crew interviewed a wealthy woman from New York and asked her, “what is the most offensive bag a woman could bring to something like this? What would be the tackiest thing that someone who was trying to fit in would bring?” Burberry emerged as the clear winner from their investigation.
Other Twitter users agreed, with Babalola’s fellow author Camilla Blackett tweeting: “That handbag was so perfectly chosen. It’s exactly off in the right way. I can’t stop thinking about it.”
“The fact that it was Burberry. The visible print. The size. The model of the bag… everything was just perfectly awful,” another social media user commented.
The hit show about an uber-wealthy and dysfunctional family began airing in 2018 and stars Australian actress Sarah Snook and former child star Kieran Culkin, who play siblings on the show.
