‘Succession’ Supporting Actor Emmy Winner Matthew Macfadyen Thanks “On-Screen Wife” Sarah Snook, “Other Wife” Nicholas Braun & Actual Wife Keeley Hawes

Seems like Matthew Macfadyen has his plate pretty full.

While accepting his Emmy award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series on Monday, the Succession star thanked his “on-screen wife” Sarah Snook, his “other on-screen wife” Nicholas Braun and his actual wife, actress Keeley Hawes (Line of Duty, Bodyguard), much to the amusement of the Emmy Awards audience.

Macfadyen also thanked “the Television Academy, the entire Succession family. Directors, writers, producers, cast and crew, our peerless crew, every department, often unsung, always brilliant.”

In the smash-hit HBO series, Macfadyen is Tom Wambsgans, an executive at Waystar — the Roy family’s global media conglomerate. Tom’s aforementioned “wife” is Roy sibling Shiv (Snook), while the “other on-screen wife” Braun plays the much-maligned Cousin Greg.

Macfadyen also won in an Emmy in this category in 2022, and earlier this month he won a Golden Globe. He is also nominated for a SAG Award in the Male Actor in a Drama Series category.

Succession leads the Emmy nominations list for 2023 with a total of 27, followed by The Last of Us with 24 and Ted Lasso with 21.

Succession came to an end in May 2023 with its fourth season.
