The Boys star Shantel Vansanten reacted to the painful choice of Becca and Butcher.
Shantel told about her first reaction to TV line when he was reading the script. He said, “I struggled with it because that’s the love of her life,
“And she loves Ryan, and that’s her child, and she chose to raise the child over telling her husband. It’s so complex”.
She added, “But she tells him in that episode she can’t save him, and she has the opportunity to save Ryan so that he doesn’t end up a bad human or a bad superhero. She feels that responsibility so heavily, and she knows that she can’t save Butcher. Butcher has to save himself.”
She said, “That’s a pretty painful realization when you love somebody enough to be able to let them go, and she’s had to do it now twice,” she continued. “There was so much pain in those moments.”
She continued, “I remember feeling so frustrated and angry and sad in my Becca brain that I ended up kicking a tire in between scenes, and I was just like, ‘Ugh, this is the worst!’
You feel all of that struggle. “I had a wonderful scene partner in Karl [Urban] and just being able to play the conflict of how much they love each other and how much they just can’t make it work.”
