Kieran Culkin has wrapped up his four season run on Succession, but not without some regrets.
The actor, 40, who reprised his role as Roman Roy in the final season premiere Sunday on HBO, built two families while working on the Emmy winning dramady.
On screen he is an often immature and impulsive guy who systematically drops truth bombs at the inconvenient moments on his father, Logan, played by Brian Cox, 76, and siblings Connor, Kendall and Shiv, played by Alan Ruck, 66, Jeremy Strong, 44, and Sarah Snook, 35.
Behind the scenes, Kieran told Esquire, the actors have formed a strong familial bond, one that will be stretched now that the series had ended and they will go their separate ways.
'It’s a big, big loss,' admitted the grieving star.
