The Boys star Jack Quaid has apologised for killing Rue in The Hunger Games.

The actor plays Hughie Campbell in the Amazon Prime Video series, but made his feature film debut as District 1 tribute Marvel in the original Hunger Games film in 2012.

Part of Cato's career pack of tributes, Marvel is the character who murders young Rue (Amandla Stenberg) following her and Katniss's successful blowing up of the careers' supplies. In return, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) kills Marvel, making him the first person she kills in the series.

And now, Jack has now jokingly said sorry for taking out the fan favourite character on social media.

Rumbled by a fan as the guy who plays Rue's murderer on Twitter, Jack wrote over the weekend: "Oh shit that's right. Sorry."

He later added: "In all fairness, I met my demise VERY quickly afterwards. I was brainwashed by my luxurious District 1 upbringing.

"But, yes, incredibly sorry."

Jokingly dubbed a "POS" by How To Get Away With Murder star Jack Falahee, he responded: "I mean I can't disagree."

The hilarious exchanges follow Jack wrapping filming on another big project, the new Scream movie, which is officially titled Scream.

Having recently revealed the cast's joke about the title, fans will have to wait and see whether Jack will have any blood on his hands this time around.

The Boys is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
