Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy in New Clips From THE BOYS Season 3
Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy goes from action scenes, with his signature shield, to being held in captivity, with a heavy beard, in new clips from season 3 of The Boys.
Our favourite vigilantes find him in present day, clean him up and he’s back in action as Soldier Boy.
Amazon Prime released the teaser ahead of The Boys panel at SXSW in Austin.
Jensen Ackles called his Soldier Boy character a “jackass” in January when he spoke to Michael Rosenbaum on the Inside of You podcast.
He’s a grandpa. He’s from the ’40s. He fought in World War II, and he’s just this curmudgeon, bigoted a–hole. He doesn’t age, so he’s this 40-year-old superhero who’s really 80 years old or 90 years old. There’s just so much material there.. — Jensen Ackles describing his character.
[The Boys] find me and I’ve been essentially in captivity for a while. And so, when they do, I’m bearded and I look like [I’m from the movie] Cast Away, but then they clean me up and I get my superhero outfit back on and I go to town. — Jensen Ackles.
Filming in Toronto:
Jensen Ackles arrived with a bushy beard in Toronto five or six weeks into production of season 3 last year to quarantine and started filming April 19th.
Fans spotted him on set as Soldier Boy on May 31st looking washed up.
But when The Boys released the official photos on June 7th, he looked like a super hero.
He’s the f’n Captain now, America.
Cleaned up and suited up in present day.
Early on, Jensen Ackles bonded with the Vigilantes.
