Playing a superhero can be tough. Often, you’ve got to play two characters — the hero and an alter ego — and try to make them different enough to be at least semi-plausibly believable. Another difficult part? The costumes. Usually, the suits are made to highlight key parts of the actor’s physique, and they aren’t all that forgiving if the actor doesn’t stay in shape. For Antony Starr of The Boys, keeping a fitness regimen has become a key part of his preparation for the show.
The Boys is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
