When asked about seeing people dressing up as Shiv for Halloween, she agreed with Meyers that it was ‘high praise,’ but added it isn’t a tough costume.

‘But isn’t it the easiest Halloween costume ever? It’s just donning a red wig Bob sort of thing and putting on a turtleneck and high waisted pants,’ Snook joked.

‘I mean, I’ve got the red hair but I can’t wear turtlenecks or high waisted pants anyway because I look like I’m on Halloween costume,’ she added, which Meyers compared to, ‘an athlete wearing his uniform out.’

Succession is set within the powerful Roy family, who run a massive media conglomerate, with Shiv and her siblings Roman (Kieran Culkin), Kendall (Jeremy Strong) and Connor (Alan Ruck) all working below their father Logan (Brian Cox).

Since a lot of the show features the siblings being quite mean to one another, and when asked if she had a favorite co-star to be mean to, she immediately said Kieran.

‘He’s also super mean just to be fun. To you. You know, that’s the way he shows love,’ Snook said of her co-star. 

She also shared a story from the second episode, following the pilot, where she had to film a scene where she wrestled with Culkin.

‘Yeah, well, we had to like fight, like wrestle and — yeah, I mean, this is like the first episode back in the first season shooting, and we had to wrestle,’ she said.

She added the stunt coordinator was teaching them to, ‘do it properly so we don’t hurt each other, when Kieran had an idea.

‘And then, finally, Kieran is like, “Can I just slap you it’s going to be easier.” And I’m like, “Okay, sure. For this one, fine,”‘ she added.

She said that when he slapped her, there was, ‘a sibling kick that happened and just went for him,’ but she added he knows a lot more about wrestling than she does.

‘And then, he knows WWE for some reason, he’s a tiny little wrestler and he’s just obsessed with watching it and he just knew how to do all the hold so I thought I was winning for a while, but then, like, he got me up against the wall and like pulled me down,’ Snook added. 

She added they used that take in the episode, because you could see something in her eyes, ‘like some little thing that goes like… It’s like a little fly swat or something. Get away from me.’

The actress also mentioned she came across a term her character Shiv might use called, ‘Yoga babble,’ which is, ‘the encompassing word for bulls**t.’

Her co-star Matthew McFadyen was on the show recently, who said their co-star Bryan Cox, ‘He seems irascible but I’m sure he’s sweet.’ 

Snook said, ‘He’s irascible, no, he’s lovely. He’s a big teddy bear. He loves being loud and rambunctious.’
