‘Succession’: What is Kieran Culkin’s Net Worth and How Much Does He Earn Per Episode of the HBO Series?
Kieran Culkin began his acting career as a child actor in the 1990s but didn’t begin acquiring the majority of his net worth until starring in HBO’s Succession. He began developing a name for himself after starring in his breakthrough role in Igby Goes Down in 2002. However, Culkin is most well known for his role as Roman Roy, the inappropriate youngest son of Logan Roy (Brian Cox). What does Kieran Culkin make per Succession episode, and what is his net worth in 2021?
Kieran Culkin was Kevin’s cousin, Fuller McCallister, in ‘Home Alone’
Almost 30 years before joining the Succession cast and amassing his considerable net worth, Kieran Culkin took a role in Home Alone with his brother, Macaulay Culkin. Kevin’s brother, Fuller McCallister, was Kieran’s first acting role at the age of 8. Fans will remember Fuller from the classic 1990 Christmas movie as the child who “wets the bed.” Kieran portrayed the child that Kevin did not want to share a bed with the night before the family’s trip to Paris. He reprised his role in 1992 in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
Kieran and Macaulay aren’t the only actors in their family. Their younger brother, Rory Culkin, is known for his roles in Scream 4, Lords of Chaos, You Can Count on Me, Columbus, and M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs. Kieran’s father and Broadway stage actor Kit Culkin insisted on raising his children as performers. In addition to Macaulay and Rory, Kieran has four other siblings — Shane, Dakota, Quinn, and Christian.

How tall is Kieran Culkin?
While watching Succession, many viewers wonder why Culkin’s co-stars look taller than him. Kieran Culkin is 5-foot-6, while Nicholas Braun is a staggering 6-foot-7. Cousin Greg is one of the tallest actors in Hollywood. So, it is no surprise that he looks so tall standing next to Culkin. Although Roman looks short next to cousin Greg in Succession, Culkin is about the same height as many other actors in the series. Brian Cox is the same height as Culkin. Jeremy Strong, who portrays Kendall Roy, is only a few inches taller at 5-foot-8.
