Who voices Ambrosius the octopus in The Boys?Amazon Prime

It's the love that truly dare not speak its name: that between an amphibian superhero (and really strong swimmer) who can talk to sea creatures, and his beloved octopus.

We'd met Ambrosius before season four of The Boys, when The Deep (Chace Crawford) was caught enjoying a personal moment with the amorous cephalopod.

In the first episode of Season four, Deep promised his Vought colleagues that "the octopus" was dealt with and in the past, but a later scene revealed that the reverse was true. And it isn't just a casual fling.

"We wouldn't have to hide our love any more…" the eight-legged beast sensually drawled through the glass of her tank, inviting Deep to run away with her to the ocean. "We could just be Kevin and Ambrosius."

It's hardly her first superhero appearance – she played the Ancient One in Doctor Strange and The Avengers: Endgame. But even so, she's better known for her roles in elevated, arthouse fare like We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Grand Budapest Hotel.

But then this kind of left-field decision is exactly why we love her.

The Boys season four premieres its first three episodes this Thursday (June 13) on Prime Video, with new episodes weekly. Seasons 1-3 and spin-off Gen V are also streaming on Prime Video.
