'Succession' star Brian Cox spoke highly of his wife Nicole Ansari-Cox at Series Mania after she showed her support for women in Iran.

“My wife is half Iranian and she was one of the first people to cut her hair as part of the protest." 

"We are living in such a difficult, dangerous time, particularly for women. In Afghanistan, in Iran. It’s unacceptable."

"I am very proud of my wife: She is a very strong woman with very strong opinions, and she taught me so much,”  Brian told Variety.

“For me, the patriarchy has failed. Miserably. It’s time for the matriarchy and I really mean it."

"It’s time for men to step down and get the f**k out of the way. It has become ridiculous, with what we are seeing in Ukraine, too.”  

“It’s all about men exercising their power because they don’t understand the mystery of women."

"Also, women don’t understand when men go into their ‘nothing box.’ It’s when men are just sitting and women ask: ‘What are you thinking?’ ‘Nothing.’ 

"Men are dull and they have been allowed free reign for far too long.”
