Logan Roy, media mogul and father of four adult kids who are each unhappy in their own way, is on his third marriage, with the occasional other woman popping in and out of his bedroom.
Cox, 76, is also a father of four: Son Alan, 52, and daughter Margaret, 45, with Caroline Burt, who he was married to from 1968 to 1986, and sons Orson, 21, and Torin, 18, with his second wife, Nicole Ansari-Cox.
“I was just in my twenties when I got married to Caroline,” the Scottish actor wrote in his 2021 memoir Putting the Rabbit in the Hat. “Far too young. But I wanted the stability of marriage and kids. I wasn’t one of those middle-class actor-types, taking drugs and letting it all hang out.”
He called Ansari-Cox, an actress and theater director, his “soulmate.” She also, incidentally, made a winning cameo at Logan Roy’s funeral as Sally-Ann, his mistress from his second marriage to Caroline (Harriet Walters), who jollily introduces the newcomer to Logan’s third wife Marcia (Hiam Abbass) and his most recent girlfriend Kerry (Zoe Winters) as her Kerry.
