Succession’s Sarah Snook refuses to conform to Hollywood female body ideals

Succession has returned for its final season – and Sarah Snook, who plays Shiv Roy, is once again gracing our screens with her starring role as the Roy family’s formidable only daughter – and the series’ female lead.

Season four will see the super-wealthy, dysfunctional family unit continue their internal strife over who gets to be the successor of the Roystar Wayco media conglomerate, headed up by their billionaire father Logan Roy. Sarah, together with her husband Tom, battles it out with Roman & Kendall in all-out sibling warfare, as the threat of the sale to tech entrepreneur Lukas Matsson grows ever more likely.

Fans’ excitement for the show has been pretty much non-stop ever since season 4 premiered over the week on Sunday March 26, with notable excitement over Sarah’s performance in the first episode – including several comments on Twitter that she should “win an Emmy” for her performance in the next awards season.

But this isn’t the only major thing going on in the 35-year-old Australian actor’s life. Last week, Sarah chose the season 4 premiere event in New York as her big moment to reveal she is pregnant with her first child with husband, Australian comedian Dave Lawson, debuting her baby bump in a form-fitting black bodysuit and floor-length silver cardigan.

In light of Sarah Snook’s return to our screens, and her exciting personal life news, we’ve revisiting exclusive comments she made in a previous GLAMOUR Unfiltered interview on the subject of Hollywood female body ideals.

“I’m learning to deal with it I guess. I still feel very at the beginning of a lot of things in my career, and my personhood, womanhood, and sort of working it out as I go along,” she said, speaking to us back in October 2021 ahead of the release of the show’s third season.

“But I’ve certainly always felt pretty strongly about being proud of oneself. . . oftentimes I find, as a woman, you’re more likely to be far more cruel to yourself than you ever are about other people or to other people and so why can’t you give yourself the grace and kindness as well? And that’s not always easy, of course. ”
