'Succession' Season 3 Episode 7: What is Alexander Skarsgård's role in HBO drama?
'Succession' Season 3 has seen quite the cameos and the latest one that's expected is a brief, but impactful role by 'True Blood' star Alexander Skarsgård. Earlier this season, there was another cameo by Adrien Brody who played Josh Aaronson, a billionaire activist investor who becomes a key player in the Waystar ownership tussle “I thought my family was fucked up. This is next level,” he famously tells.
So far, the Roys have been losing and scrambling the plot. Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) extended an olive branch to Tom (Matthew Macfayden) only to be spat in the face, while Shiv (Sarah Snook) has a hard time processing the fact that her dad sided with Jeryd Mencken (Justin Kirk) in their quest to find the new POTUS after the previous one resigned following the damned ATN coverage.

Who is Alexander Skarsgård playing in 'Succession' Season 3?
Skarsgard will play Lukas Matsson, described by Variety as a successful, confrontational tech founder and CEO. There was a slight tease where he shares a scene with Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin). The duo wonder when the latter's pompous, but shrewd dad, Logan (Brian Cox) would kick the bucket, “with due respect, obviously.” There isn't much to go on about the actor's cameo, but it shouldn't come as a surprise that he will play a vital role just as Brody's Aaronson.
The official synopsis of Episode 7 titled, 'Too Much Birthday' reads, "At Kendall’s lavish birthday bash, Shiv and Roman try to arrange a meeting with Lukas Matsson, a tech mogul who recently snubbed Logan." The episode was written by Tony Roche and Georgia Pritchett. Director Lorene Scafaria serves as the director. With this episode, the countdown for the finale begins. 'Succession' Season 3 has nine episodes and two remain in the third season. Episode 8 is titled 'Chiantishire' and the finale is titled 'All the Bells Say'
'Succession' Season 3 airs Sundays at 9 pm ET on HBO.
