Jeremy Strong Education
Upon Strong’s graduation from high school, he did the application for universities with a letter of recommendation from DreamWorks.

While there, he interned with Hoffman’s production company and also studied at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, Illinois, and at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.

Strong was inspired by actors like Dustin Hoffman, Al Pacino, and Daniel Day-Lewis, such that he had posters of their movies on his bedroom wall. He also used to read every interview they gave and follow the news of their careers. He was hired in “The Crucible’s” (a 1996 film) crew – at one point he held up a branch outside a window in a scene filming. Strong has served the Amistad sound crew, where he held a boom mike over Anthony Hopkins while making a speech. He also assisted in editing “Looking for Richard” (Pacino’s directorial debut).
He began his career in acting in college (at Yale University), where he acted in a variety of plays at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Strong’s 1st off-Broadway performance was in the year 2006 when he acted in the film “Defiance”. In the year 2008, he made his Broadway debut when he portrayed Richard Rich, the first Baron Rich revival of the film “A Man for All Seasons”. Also, in the year 201, he made his movie debut in Humboldt County.
Since then, he has been starring in several acclaimed movies where he portrays real-life people like Jerry Rubin in “The Trial of the Chicago 7” (2020), John George Nicolay in “Lincoln” (2012), James Reeb in “Selma” (2014), Brandon in “See Girl Run” (2012), and Thomas in “Zero Dark Thirty” (2012)… just to name a few!

“Succession” centers on the Roy family, who owns Waystar RoyCo (media conglomerate), as they are battling for the company’s control amid uncertainty about Logan Roy (Brian Cox)’s (the patriarch of the family) health.
His role in the movie “The Big Short” led him to star in “Succession. Strong was originally interested in portraying the role of Roman Roy (the wisecracking youngest son of the family), but after the role was assigned to Kieran Culkin, he did it perfectly!
