Following her breakout turn as Shiv Roy in HBO's aforementioned drama-comedy, Snook is building herself an impressive cinematic portfolio.

Just this month, her latest project Pieces of a Woman (co-starring Vanessa Kirby, Shia LaBeouf and Ellen Burstyn) received critical acclaim at the Venice Film Festival – Netflix will stream it internationally.

Meanwhile, Succession's third season has been directly affected by the coronavirus pandemic, leaving its production and release date in limbo for the time being.

Matthew Macfadyen, who plays Shiv's partner Tom Wambsgans, shared an update on season three in July.

"They're hoping to start in the autumn, but I know that a lot of shows are sort of sliding to January. I think it changes week to week – or day to day, really. Restrictions are put in place and then removed, so there are things that you can do and then you can't do," he told The Hollywood Reporter.

"The producers have to make really difficult decisions about whether to start or not, and whether they'll be screwed up halfway down the shoot if something else happens," he added.

"And then wouldn't be able to do the show the way that you want it to be done, so it's tricky. But fingers crossed. I really miss it."

Succession airs on HBO in the US and is available on Sky and NOW TV in the UK.
