The Boys’ Tomer Capone Admits He Manifested Frenchie’s Gay Revelation

Capone explains how Frenchie’s sexuality arc came up in Season 4.

Frenchie and Kimiko had a tension in ‘The Boys’ Season 3 but decided against pursuing a relationship by the end of it. This season introduced a new arc for Frenchie as he began his first same-sex romance on screen with Elliot Knight’s Colin.

Tomer Capone shared how he and showrunner Eric Kripke came up with the storyline in a recent chat with Variety:

“When I started with Frenchie, in terms of me assembling character and kind of puzzling who this guy is, I had a lot of inspiration for some reason from artists like Serge Gainsbourg, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Mick Jagger. If you think about it, all those people have a sexuality that is not black or white, it’s somewhere in between. They’re so beautiful for being what they are. On the funny side, I manifested it.”

He recalled:

“I tell you why, because in the second season they brought this T-shirt to the trailer and it had this crazy bone bunny, a skeleton of a bunny, on it. I had this idea out of nowhere, taking a pair of scissors and just cutting it to a crop top. I ended up on set with the crop top and I remember Eric Kripke was on set and he asked me, ‘Tommy, you know, it’s a crop top? We can see your belly button?’ I said, ‘Frenchie loves it.’ And he said, ‘All right, all right.’ Maybe that manifested the whole arc with Colin.”

The Romance Arc’s Role in Frenchie’s Story

Some viewers criticized the relationship between Frenchie and Colin by saying it was ‘forced’ to ‘tick a box.’ But the series hinted at Frenchie’s bisexuality in earlier seasons.

Season 2 implied a romantic relationship between Frenchie and his colleague Jay, along with a possible polyamorous relationship that included Cherie.

His new romance arc gave the hero a chance to face his past actions including killing his lover’s family. Capone said:

“At the end of the day, it’s deeper than that. It’s the writers and the story trying to give you another angle and another peep hole to see this character, where he came from, what his demons are made of. Obviously, Frenchie is a tortured soul that walks in the crazy world of The Boys that is controlled by the Seven. And to the equivalent to our world with media and politics, he’s an outsider. So it’s just another beautiful color to explore in Frenchie’s painting. I loved it.”

‘The Boys’ Season 4 continues to stream on Prime Video.
