The Boys has become one of the most popular series today. Amazon Prime Video’s satire of the superhero genre has taken the tropes of the genre that dominates audiovisuals these days to another level.
Much of the success of the series based on the comics of Garth Ennis y Darick Robertson It is due to the magnificent work of its cast. A little above all are Karl Urban y Antony Starr.
If you often watch series when traveling or in various parts of the house, these tablets can be good companions for entertainment consumption.
Urban plays William Carnicero (Butcher)a former agent who watched the world’s most famous superhero kidnap and rape his wife, has sworn revenge against him.
As for Starr, he brings to life Patriot, the aforementioned hero, leader of The Seven. This parody of Superman is narcissistic, selfish and a textbook megalomaniac.
The two stars currently enjoy enviable popularity, not only because of these projects, but also because of their recent career.
However, many do not remember their roles in one of the series where they “coincided” more than two decades ago: both Antony Starr and Karl Urban appeared in Xena: Warrior Princess.
The two actors, originally from New Zealand, took advantage of the fact that the iconic fantasy series was filming in the country to join the cast.
The paper of Urban was Julius Caesar’s (and Cupid)a recurring enemy of Xena during the second and third seasons, who became the main one in the fourth.
In the case of Antony Starr, his role is more anecdotal. The Patriot actor got into the skin of a young iteration of Davidwho would knock down Goliath in the biblical story.
It is always curious to find these past coincidences that may surprise many. Of course, to this day we still find people who are surprised to discover that Karl Urban is Éomer in The Lord of the Rings, which, by the way, was also filmed in New Zealand.
