He said: ‘I never like watching myself, for a start. And somehow or other, because of what happened to Logan, I’ve been disinclined to watch.’
He added: ‘I knew how it was going to end, because I knew that Logan had already set it up.
‘And so I gather that ultimately at the end Logan’s won through, even though he’s in the grave.’
He continued: ‘It’s a strange situation, I don’t cling on to things. When it’s over, it’s over and I go on. And I find that with this show, which has been a great show, it’s been one of the great shows of all time – especially for me.
‘The wealth gap fascinates me, the fact that people are getting poorer and people are getting richer.

‘And the richer become so out of it, they’re so separated. And that’s what our show is dealing with and rightly they got their just desserts at the end apparently.
‘I haven’t seen the finale, but apparently they get their just desserts.’
It comes after Brian admitted that his critically acclaimed role on the series has caused him to ‘lose my anonymity’.
He secured a Golden Globe for the role, but confessed to Barley Magazine that his success has come with a price.
He explained: ‘It’s been a phenomenal journey for me. There’s no question it’s changed my life in so many ways.
‘I’ve lost my anonymity, you know, I’ve lost all of that. That’s all gone. I used to be the guy you’d say “Oh, you were in such and such or no, or no you weren’t”….but now I’m Logan Roy and everybody just wants me to tell them to f*** off!’
He discussed how fans commonly ask him for ‘f*** off selfies’, saying: ‘I say they can have one for $500.
Well-known: It comes after Brian admitted that his critically acclaimed role on the series has caused him to ‘lose my anonymity’
‘The best or worst example of that was in L.A. when I attending a #MeToo event where Ronan Farrow was reading from his book Catch and Kill, and I was invited by Rosanna Arquette to come along.
‘So I turned up – I was late – and I stood at the back of the hall. The place was full of all these Hollywood wives getting very intense.
‘Anyway, it was an interesting talk. Finally Ronan finished and there was a round of applause. And then the audience all turned around and saw me and immediately brought out their phones and started yelling me for to tell them to F*** Off!
‘Well, I’m thinking, this is a #MeToo meeting, is that really appropriate? There’s me, an old white dinosaur telling all these women to fuck off. There’s something that doesn’t quite compute here.’
