'Succession' Star Brian Cox Had COVID-19
Yes, that means he has the antibodies
Published Aug 14, 2020Last month, Nicholas Braun (a.k.a. Succession's beloved Cousin Greg) revealed a COVID-19 banger in search of someone who has the antibodies for the disease. As it turns out, his buddy (and Succession uncle) Brian Cox had them all along. In a new interview, Cox revealed he had COVID-19 and didn't realize.
While appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Cox revealed that he was getting some routine blood tests for diabetes when his doctor revealed that he had the antibodies for the disease.
"My doctor called and said: 'Oh, congratulations you've had it [COVID-19]. And you've got the antibodies,'" Cox recalled.
He didn't know when he had caught the disease, and his doctor couldn't tell him either. Cox thinks he may have had it in December 2019, when he recalls some sneezing fits after travelling from the U.K. to the United States.
What's most important is that Brian Cox now has the antibodies, so he can hang out with his TV nephew Nicholas Braun.
