At the 2021 New York Comic Con, ‘The Boys’ cast reflected on filming seasons 1 and 2 of the hit Amazon Prime Video show.
Hosted by Amanda Wirtz, the 2021 New York Comic Con featured cast members Antony Starr, Chace Crawford, Jack Quaid, Karen Fukuhara, and Erin Moriarty.
The entire cast was supremely personable, sharing stories from how they were cast to favorite moments filming the first two seasons. There was much discussion about The Deep’s unfortunate plot points, from gill fingering to dolphin mishaps. The cast also shared their personal experience with that giant whale and Karen Fukuhara (Kimiko) and Erin Moriarty (Starlight) revealed the scene they enjoyed filming in the first two seasons of the show.
The actresses revealed that the satisfying moment involved Starlight, Kimiko, and Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) taking down Stormfront as the male characters watched in amazement.
Fukuhara said she thought the scene was “fucking great” when she first read it in the script.
“For my character at least, I spent the entire season mad dogging Stormfront and I was so happy to see that we were getting the revenge that she deserved,” the actress said.
Moriarty said that the highlight for her was getting to shout violently while rerecording her lines for the scene during a studio session, known as ADR.
“I had to do ADR for the fight and I got to spend a full hour of my life yelling into a microphone saying things like, ‘Eat my shit, you Nazi bitch!'” she said. “I was like, this is cathartic. Who needs therapy? That was my favorite part, just yelling that type of shit into a mic. So I loved that. I mean, I loved every part, but that was the catharsis that I needed.”
