Succession star Sarah Snook is seen with her baby daughter for the first time as she enjoys a day out in London with husband Dave Lawson – after sweeping the board at award season

Sarah Snook took advantage of a break in production on Sunday as she ventured out in London with husband Dave Lawson and their baby daughter. 

The actress, best known for her starring role as Shiv Roy in HBO drama Succession, was making her first public appearance with the nine-month old, her only child with Australian comedian Lawson. 

Snook, 36, dressed down in a grey sweater and sweat pants while out with her family in the English capital, where she is currently onstage in Oscar Wilde’s The Picture Of Dorian Gray. 

Lawson, 45, looked equally relaxed in a plaid over-shirt and jeans while cradling their baby daughter in a papoose. 

Snook was taking a well-earned break with her family after bringing Wilde’s celebrated  novel to the stage with an ambitious one-woman production – in which she plays all 26 characters.

It follows a hugely successful awards season for Snook, whose role in Succession saw her triumph at the Critics Choice, Golden Globes and Emmy Awards. 

However, in an interview with The Sunday Times, Snook revealed that her path to superstardom and landing the role of Shiv Roy was anything but glamorous.

She described herself as ‘enormously depressed’ as a teenager growing up in Sydney, putting herself through drama school because her parents were broke.

Snook attended Sydney’s prestigious National Institute of Dramatic Art and recalled how people would make fun of her falling asleep in lectures because she had no energy from not being able to afford to eat nutritous meals.

She told how she was living off white rice, explaining: ‘I was making $120 a week, rent was $90 and $12 went on my phone. It was certainly character-building.’

‘No wonder I was falling asleep in the history of theatre lessons,’ she recalled. ‘I was always falling asleep in the back row. 

‘I was spiking my blood sugar and not eating any protein, I couldn’t afford it. People would take bets on whether I would fall asleep.’

Snook detailed feeling ‘lost’ after graduating in 2008 and began working in a cafe to make ends meet. The actress said she was down to her last A$10 before acting work began to roll in.

She bagged several small roles in Australian films which won her awards and she slowly made her way to becoming an established actress by 2015. 

Snook played Apple entrepreneur Andrea Cunningham in the Hollywood biopic and made her West End debut alongside Ralph Fiennes.

When she was offered the role of Shiv, the actress admitted she didn’t understand the appeal of a family of brats who were only interested in increasing their bank balance.

She said her friends questioned the character and she assured them: ‘That was my reaction too!’

However, as the series went on, Snook confessed she couldn’t help but root for Shiv, hoping that she would be the one who made CEO.
