The Boys' Jessie Usher was 'covered in blood for 12 hours' during 'intense' first day on set shooting gory scenes

THE Boys' Jessie Usher reveals he was covered in blood for 12 hours while filming graphic scenes.

The actor described his first day on set as 'intense' and he knew what he was in for when he arrived.

Usher, 28, who plays The Seven member A-Train, the fastest man on the planet on the Amazon Prime show, told Digital Spy that he certainly got more than he bargained for when he was introduced on set.

Jessie revealed: "The shocking moments are what we live for on this show, we're just as surprised to be doing this stuff as you guys are to be watching us do these things.

"I never thought I'd be running through a human being. That was day one for me on the show… so I knew very early on what I was going to be in for here. It was an intense first day. I was covered in blood for 12 hours!"

The Dangerous Lies star had an explosive start to his time on the Superhero series, as he had just killed Hughie Campbell's (Jack Quaid) girlfriend Robin Ward (Jess Salgueiro) when he is seen on screen for the first time.

His super-speed proved too much for Robin as the sheer force from when A-Train smashed through her proved too much for her to handle.

The superhero was drenched in her blood as a result and then shockingly told Hughie that he couldn't stop to help and continued on his way.

There's plenty for fans to look forward to in the upcoming second series, with cast member Jack Quaid also promising that the new episodes have "gone so much further" than the first season.

We'll also meet the newest member of the team The Seven Stormfront (Aya Cash), who will clash with the one and only Homelander, the group's sadistic and chauvinistic leader.

THE Boys' Karl Urban has branded season two 'a testament to the sick mind' of the show boss Eric Kripke with action taken 'to the f***ing max'.

The 48-year-old actor plays Billy Butcher in the Amazon Prime Video series, which returns for its second season next month.

Discussing what fans can expect, Karl revealed the cast and crew stepped up to the high expectations set by season one and promised plenty of action.

He told Digital Spy: "[It] was a huge challenge in the sense that season one came out and was a massive smash hit.

"Collectively, we were all like, 'Okay, we need to top that and deliver something even better for season two'".

Season two of The Boys premieres on Amazon Prime Video on September 4, with season one available now.
