Kieran Culkin, who plays Roman Roy, in HBO‘s Succession is being praised by fans. The actor delivered a moving speech in Season 9, Episode 4 – Logan Roy’s funeral. Now, the Succession star is heavily tipped to take home the gold at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards for his performance as Roman Roy.
“is he in there?” Roman’s grief finally showing… Kieran Culkin we will get you that Emmy too, my god this moment,” a Twitter user said.

“Oh, Kieran Culkin is taking the Emmy,” another one added.
Along with his co-stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, and Sarah Snook, Culkin said earlier this year that he had put himself forward for the lead drama actor category.
The main actors will all be vying for the top honor despite Cox’s minimal screen time, but according to fans of the popular HBO drama, Culkin has been the season’s standout performer.
Roman is getting ready to deliver an emotional eulogy during his father Logan’s (Cox) burial, according to the most recent Church and State sneak look.
