Discover Your Inner "Succession" Persona: Which Character are You?


What if you were born into one of the world's wealthiest, most powerful families, and you had a shot at inheriting it all? For the Roys of HBO's "Succession," this is reality, and it makes for some pretty intense family gatherings. Everyone is a force with which to be reckoned, from the fearsome patriarch, Logan Roy, to awkward Cousin Greg, and it's anyone's guess who will turn the odds in their favor.

Not one character is who they seem, and it's no surprise that we begin to see a little bit of ourselves in the Roys as the stakes climb. This begs the question: which of the "Succession" characters do you most embody? Could you hold your own in a family of moguls and influencers, or are you better suited to a position in title only?

Look past the good publicity and bravado and discover your true inner Roy with our quiz. If you disagree with the results, take a page from Logan Roy's book and f**k off!

Did you know?

Are the Roys based on a real family?

The family members at the heart of HBO's "Succession" are not based on actual people, but they take their cues from real-life international media magnates. The series creator, Jesse Armstrong, adapted the story from a script he wrote about the Murdochs, the family behind Fox News, The Wall Street Journal, and The Times of London. Taking inspiration from other powerful households like the Hearsts and the Redstones, he created Logan Roy and his empire, Waystar Royco. When Adam McKay came onto the project as executive producer, he agreed that the Roy family business should be a media conglomerate. According to McKay, media families are more intriguing and the most dramatic.

"Succession" films in New York City, where producers agree the locations make the show feel more authentic. For example, Logan Roy's apartment is located on Billionaires' Row, with incredible views of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park. Waystar Royco's offices are located at One World Trade Center, where the Manhattan city skyline is visible from inside the tower.

In a case of life imitating art, HBO's parent company, Time Warner, merged with AT&T in 2018 as part of a controversial and highly-publicized deal.
