In what has become a breakout hit among critics and audiences alike, Strong stars on HBO’s critically acclaimed, award-winning series Succession, created by Jesse Armstrong and executive produced by Adam McKay. Strong’s lead performance as Kendall Roy has been called the “most complex and committed work on television right now,” earning him a 2020 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and the 2020 Critics Choice award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. In addition, Succession earned the 2020 Golden Globe award for Best Television Series, Drama. The year prior, Succession was nominated for five Emmy awards, including Outstanding Drama Series, and won the coveted BAFTA Award for Best International Drama Series. Season three commences production later this year.
Strong began his career on the stage working in numerous acclaimed Off-Broadway productions. He made his Broadway debut in 2008, starring opposite Frank Langella in A Man for All Seasons, directed by Doug Hughes.
Jeremy Strong is a recipient of the prestigious Lincoln Center Theater Annenberg Fellowship for “an artist of extraordinary talent.” He trained at Yale, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London and Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater Company.
