Brian Cox has told how he sang goodbye to his beloved father-in-law over FaceTime.

The Scottish actor was in London doing press for his hit TV show Succession when his father-in-law passed away last weekend, so the pair bade each other farewell online with a moving duet.

Opening up in an emotional interview on BBC Breakfast, Cox said: “We sang, it was on FaceTime.

“And it was just… and he joined in, and it just amazing.”

The star – who was tearful as he shared the memory – went on: “This was my last memory of him and it was a beautiful memory.”

Cox, 75, said that he was ready to cancel his press junkets to go and be with his father-in-law but that his wife Nicole Ansari told him to stay, and that he’d had his goodbye.

The actor stars as terrifying billionaire Logan Roy in Succession, which followers the dysfunctional owners of an entertainment conglomerate.
