Succession Actress Natalie Gold Wants Rava Roy’s Patience 2023

Natalie Gold emphasizes that Rava Roy “is not a saint by any means”. Over Succession’s four seasons, Rava was one of the show’s unsung heroes whenever she appeared.

Rava endured torment. She co-parents Sophie (Sway Bhatia) and Iverson (Quentin Morales) with Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong), her ex-husband.

In the show’s last season, she tells Kendall that Sophie, a minority adolescent, was attacked on the street. Kendall and the Roy family, through their right-wing news network ATN, supported fascist candidate Jeryd Mencken (Justin Kirk) days before a high-stakes election.

Kendall criticizes Rava’s parenting. “I was raising our daughter, while you were fucking running a racist news organization!” she replies. Kendall then says, “I’m breaking my back, and it’s all for them,” which Rava skillfully rejects with “a vicious laugh,” according to Natalie.

In the penultimate episode, Rava decides not to attend grandfather Logan Roy’s burial because of demonstrations since Mencken proclaimed victory.

Kendall throws a ridiculous tantrum, threatening to physically halt traffic (which he does not) and seek an emergency restraining order to keep her and their kids from leaving the city. “You do that?” Rava scoffs, getting into her car.

The funeral episode built up the cataclysmic ending. Roman (Kieran Culkin) gently suggests Kendall is not the father of his children at the Roy siblings’ last showdown to irritate Kendall. The line startled Gold, who watched the finale with a group of New York-based cast mates at a pub.

She said they were as astonished as we were by the event. Since editing might modify scenes and shots, none of them knew what to expect in the final episode.

I trembled. Natalie stated, “I knew what was coming, but I’m still like, ‘Whoa,'” reflecting the room’s visceral reactions. I want to rewatch it alone. I haven’t yet.”
