Titans star Ryan Potter was so dedicated to his role that he even stripped down in the snow. At New York Comic Con, the Beast Boy actor told CBR about what it was like to film his role in the dead of winter.
Asked to explain his part in realizing Beast Boy's superpowers, Potter turned to his co-star Alan Ritchson for help. "Can you tell the audience about Beast Boy? I want to hear Hawk's interpretation of Beast Boy, because we haven't actually had any on-screen time really," he said.
Ritchson obliged. "So from what I know, a tiger comes in to steal some video games and forgot to put on his panties, because when he changes back, homeboy's got nothing on and it looked cold where they were shooting," he shared. "That's all I can say."

"We filmed in the middle of winter!" Teagan Croft, who plays Raven, pitched in. "He was naked in the snow multiple times."
"Yeah, that's true. That happened," Starfire actor Anna Diop confirmed.
"It was actually cold. It was -20," Potter recalled.
On Titans, Beast Boy made his debut during a stinger scene at the end of episode one. In that, he transformed into a tiger to ransack a video game store, before shifting back and running off into the woods naked. He reappeared in "Origins," Season 1's third episode, and flirted with Raven at a roller skating rink. The trailer for next week's episode teases his growing involvement with the team.
Now streaming on DC Universe, Titans stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Alan Ritchson as Hawk, Minka Kelly as Dove and Lindsey Gort as Amy Rohrbach. A new episode debuts each Friday.
