Archie Andrews and Betty Cooper are the All-American couple that we need to see happen on screen in Riverdale — but are they really?
“Archie is such a mess!” Lili shared, adding, “They’re just two people who are so much better off as friends, but she doesn’t realize it just yet.”
However, Lili is definitely a fan of Archie, and even more, KJ Apa.
“I think our Archie is a lot better than the one presented in the comic books, who is just girl-crazy. But our Archie isn’t intentionally trying to hurt Betty. He’s not using these women,” she shared.
Lili adds, “He has a heart of gold, and I think people don’t appreciate Archie as much as they should on our show. He’s just a confused teenage boy, and KJ [Apa] is so good. It’s impossible to dislike him. Everyone who meets him loves him — and I think that’s a little bit of the effect Archie has on people as well.”
