Succession star Sarah Snook looks worlds away from megarich Shiv Roy in terrifying new Netflix horror | The Sun
SUCCESSION star Sarah Snook looks incredibly different to her role of millionaire Shiv Roy in a spine-tingling new Netflix horror.
The actress is starring in Run Rabbit Run, which follows the tense relationship between Sarah's character and her daughter.
The dark film sees Sarah's character, also called Sarah, watch as her child Mia starts acting strangely.
Mia, played by Lily LaTorre, starts wearing a creepy rabbit mask and creates disturbing drawings and is convinced that she is Sarah's sister Alice, who disappeared when she was seven.
Moody and atmospheric, the film is set in Melbourne and directed by Australian filmmaker Daina Reid.
Unlike Succession's Shiv Roy, Sarah's new character looks fairly ordinary and becomes more dishevelled as the film unravels.
