While on his Las Culturistas podcast, Bowen recalled that his show and Succession were filmed at the same place.
“The Nora From Queens production office was pretty close to the Succession stages and their production office, and as we famously know, Jeremy Strong is a Method actor. At one point, Jeremy walks into the Nora From Queens production office and says, ‘Excuse me, do you know where the bathroom is,’” he said, via IndieWire. “And then someone in the office is like, ‘Yeah, it’s just down the hall to the left.’ He goes, ‘Thank you so much,’ and he leaves.”
The story continued: “So Jeremy leaves. Ten minutes pass, and a [production assistant] from Succession comes into the office and goes, ‘Hi, was Jeremy just in here?’ and they were like, ‘Yeah he was — he went to the bathroom’ and then this PA goes, ‘Did he ask where it was? Did he come here to ask you where the bathroom was?’ They were like, ‘Yeah, why?’ and the PA says, ‘He has a scene today where he has to ask someone where the bathroom is.’”
“I think that is Method to such a ridiculous degree that he must be in on the joke,” he mused. Bowen even floated “that Jeremy Strong has a sense of play and irony.”
Jeremy is so committed to Method acting that a co-star once expressed concern for him.
