Surprise: Sarah Snook has revealed her favourite scene to film from the critically-acclaimed HBO series Succession 

The outrageous moment played out after Kendall had blasted Nirvana’s Rape Me during her debut speech as Waystar Royco’s new president.

‘Shiv has been publicly humiliated by her own brother at a moment I think she was really looking forward to,’ Sarah told the publication.

‘She’s not being made CEO at this point, but she has this title of president. She’s a person who uses whatever resources she can to grasp power or leverage. And she’s been undercut in the most sibling bulls**t kind of way,’ she continued.

‘It was one of my favourite scenes to shoot, certainly one of my favourite scenes to read when we got the draft – “and then she does what?! What’s the Covid protocol for this?!”‘

The 34-year-old actress is an Australian native, though you would hardly know it from watching her play Shiv Roy on the hit HBO series.

Snook recently opened up on Ellen about working in an American accent on the show, how she sometimes slips into the British accent of her on-screen husband Matthew McFadyen while also delving into fans, ‘hate-watching’ the show.

Since both Snook and Englishman McFadyen are playing American, Ellen asked if they ‘judge’ each other’s accents between takes.  

Humiliated: 'Shiv has been publicly humiliated by her own brother at a moment I think she was really looking forward to,' Sarah said

‘I try and stay in it a little bit when I’m not doing the scene, as much as I can, at least, but when we’re off, he’s British and I’m Australian, so I slip into his accent by accident, not even my own,’ Snook said.

‘I’m doing American and British, but not even Australian on set,’ Snook said, as Ellen mentioned her wife Portia de Rossi is Australian but her accent is completely gone now. 

Snook mentioned there are some words where she wonders if she ‘slipped’ or not, but she added, ‘I try and stay as much Australian as I can, cause I still wanna be able to walk down the street in Australia.’
