In fact, he is really shipping another couple these days.
“I actually really ship Betty and Archie (KJ Apa),” Cole told Elle.com. “When I would read the Archie comics when I was younger I was rooting for Betty and Archie way over any alternative. [I think I would have seen] that long-lived, childlike romance from two people knowing each other since youth as probably quite romantic. I am a sucker for that childhood romance narrative.”
Cole added, “I know our fans take very specific camps with who they ship and who they want and all those camps are at huge war with one another. Riverdale is about to ignite into flames considering how the camps are at war with each other. I try not to involve myself too much.”
TELL JJJ: Do you agree with Cole here?
