Everything You Need To Know About ‘Succession’ Standout Star Sarah Snook

She's now one half of Australia's new 'it' couple.

Sarah Snook has worked in the Australian film and television industry for over a decade, but her rise to global fame has come from one viral show alone: Succession. 

The 33-year-old began acting professionally back in 2009 and never looked back. With titles like Aussie film The Dressmaker and 2015 biopic Steve Jobs on her portfolio, she’s undoubtedly one of the country’s fastest rising names. 

But beneath the glamour of being a famous actor, Snook lives a relatively low-key life behind the camera. So quiet in fact that she kept the relationship and subsequent marriage to her partner a secret until months after the fact.
