In a recent interview, Ackles spoke about a common issue across both shows

Jensen Ackles was the epitome of Season 3 of The Boys. After his long-awaited performance as the famous Soldier Boy (a rather grisly and twisted version of Captain America), the ‘Supernatural’ star took the show by storm, and now that the Amazon Prime Original was finished and dusted, the actor lit up his character and drew parallels with Dean Winchester, the character who helped him climb the rungs of fame.

In an interview with Variety, Ackles discussed a common problem between the two shows. Winchester and Soldier Boy both had father issues and both shows use this as central storylines. On “Supernatural,” Ackles’ character had a rather stormy bond with his father, John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). The other sees Vought using him as an experiment and injecting him with a chemical that gives him his abilities.


When asked which of the two characters had major father issues, Ackles was quick to reply. “Oh, definitely Soldier Boy,” he replied. “He definitely had the worst dad and he has deeper issues because of that. As for Dean, I don’t think Dean ever necessarily sought his father’s approval like Soldier Boy did. He just idolized his father in a way that was unique given their circumstances, given that they lived in a world that was way, way different than a relationship.

“Also dealing with the fact that his father was motivated by revenge and he was essentially John Winchester’s mini-me,” he added. “He was his little soldier. I think it was less about his approval and more about, ‘This is what I’m supposed to do because my dad taught me to do it.’”

The star also added that his character on The Boys never fitted into earning his father’s respect, even after he became a Soldier Boy. This led to him rejecting his own son Homelander (Antony Starr) and grandson Ryan (Cameron Crovetti) because they didn’t live up to the legendary status he’d attained over the decades. “Dean idolized his father and definitely had him on a pedestal.” And Ackles has been thinking about Dean’s father a lot lately, as he’s executive producer of The CW’s upcoming Supernatural prequel series The Winchesters.

“Of course, you could hack at that socket all day,” Ackles said. “But I think John Winchester really loved his sons and what he did, you could certainly argue that it was the wrong way to go about it, but it was all rooted in love. He felt the way he did and set out on the path he embarked on because of the love of his wife and family. It’s the classic situation of doing the right thing wrong.”

Season 3 of The Boys is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
