The former Supernatural star has joined the Amazon Prime Video series as Soldier Boy, one of the new season’s primary antagonists.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Ackles recalled a conversation with showrunner Erik Kripke: “‘As a father of three, and a son and a husband and a self-respecting human being, I can’t do this. I didn’t know where my line was, but you found it.'”
Kripke went on to reveal: “We worked out a compromise where I got what I needed without him destroying his soul.” Neither of them revealed details of the scene in question.
Ackles’ character was revealed in the first full-length trailer for the upcoming series earlier this month.
The clip comes ahead of the season premiere on June 3, with the first three episodes dropping then before the remaining five launch each Friday after the premiere.
Alongside Ackles, the new season has also brought on board Laurie Holden as Crimson Countess, Miles Gaston Villanueva as Supersonic, Sean Patrick Flanery as Gunpowder and Nick Wechsler as Blue Hawk.
The latter is set for release in 2022, and will include the voice talents of Awkwafina, Garth Ennis, Eliot Glazer, Ilana Glazer, Evan Goldberg, Rogen, Simon Racioppa, Justin Roiland, Ben Bayouth, Andy Samberg and Aisha Tyler.
