The Prime Video series The Boys is one of the most shocking on television, exploring what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as gods – abuse their superpowers.

As season 3 of the show hits our screens, more dirty secrets are covered up as the vigilante group The Boys continue their quest to expose the truth about The Seven, a group of legendary superheroes, and The Vought, the company that manages them and continues to protect them.

Speaking about the release of the new season, Chace Crawford, who plays Seven superhero The Deep, revealed a confronting scene from the show that wasn't originally in the script.

It was seen in the pilot episode of the TV series when Chace's character sexually assaults new member of the Seven, Starlight (Erin Moriarty), when he forces her to perform oral sex.

"It wasn't in the script initially," Chace told Yahoo Lifestyle.

"They kind of came to me and they were like, 'We want to do this, and have this moment more for her character that's in the comic books'," he said.


"Erin's obviously phenomenal, we rehearsed it a bunch before we did it ... You know, it's real and as nuanced as possible.

"For The Deep, this is a guy who's extremely entitled and it feels like it's just a rite of passage or just like a normal hazing technique. In his mind ... like there's no big deal with it. It was just sort of that white male privilege."

In an interesting twist as the first season develops, Chace's character, who has a hybrid set of human lungs and aquatic gills, is later the victim of sexual assault when a woman he is intimate with starts fondling his gills without his consent.

"That was just gross to shoot," he said.

The Boys, which is based on The New York Times bestselling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, will continue to surprise and shock fans in season 3.

And while no spoilers about the season can be revealed, Karen Fukuhara, who plays Kimiko, revealed there were some rather tough scenes to film.

"I think my hardest scene this season was a scene with Little Nina – there's one where Frenchie, Kimiko and Cherie get into a bit of trouble – and not only was it a full blood and stunt day, it was like in a puddle of water on the ground," she said.

"So I'm just kind of fighting in filth and also it was kind of emotional so the combination of everything was tough for me."

Karen added to physically prepare for her role she had to go to the gym and work with a trainer while learning everything from the show's stunt team.

"It takes weeks and weeks of practice," she told Yahoo Lifestyle.

"For example, in episode four, for the dildo fight, I had to learn how to use Kali sticks, which is a very respected form of martial art. But instead for our show, we use dildos.

"So yeah, lots of training and we like to train hard so then on the day if anything changes, we can do it as safely as possible and it's really fun when you know it through and through."

The Boys Season 3 is now airing on Prime Video.
