Sarah Snook: Succession star reveals pregnancy at final season ...
Succession star Sarah Snook has revealed she is pregnant with her first child during the red-carpet premiere of the final season of the show.
The 35-year-old Australian actress told reporters she felt "great" about her impending motherhood.
As one quarter of the show's feuding Roy brood, she plays Shiv, who along with brothers Connor, Kendall and Roman, face a constant battle to impress their demanding father Logan Roy.
Attending the event in New York on Monday in a black fitted jumpsuit and long silver cardigan, she told US outlet Extra that she had brought along "someone I have not met, but am intimate with".
Asked if she had learned anything about being a parent from Succession, she said: "What not to do."
"I don't think the Roy family are a paragon of family values, I don't think we can really be looking to them for guidance."
Snook later told Entertainment Tonight that the news was "exciting" adding: "I feel great."
She married Australian comedian Dave Lawson in 2021.
Written by British screenwriter Jesse Armstrong, the upcoming fourth season of Succession is highly anticipated, not least because it has been confirmed it will be its final series.
Fans have followed the dysfunctional Roy family through three series as they fight for control over a media empire. It stars several household names, including Snook, Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin and Matthew Macfadyen.

Cox, who stars as Logan Roy, said despite its success, ending the show now was the right thing to do.
He said: "I think it's great… It's good television, [it] doesn't try to be infinite as it sometimes does. It repeats itself. Shows go on far too long. The genius is Jesse Armstrong and also the genius of his writers as well.
"They know there is an element of finite, and they finish it because each season has to top the next season. So, you have to make the fourth season the best season so far."

The final trailer for the fourth season of Succession was released earlier this month.
The show will pick up after the Roy siblings' failed coup and their father's proposal to sell Waystar RoyCo.
This season will again feature Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard, playing tech mogul Lukas Matsson - the man set to take over the media empire.
Season 4 of Succession airs in the UK exclusively on Sky Atlantic from 27 March.
