The two actors opened up about just why fans love the two together.
“I think because it’s a little bit unexpected in a way, you know, because Jughead is kinda doing his own thing in the comics, so to see him relate to a girl is — you know, people are excited about that,” Lili says.
Cole adds, “This is something that was kind of uncharted territory, and we didn’t really know if it was gonna take. But it did, and people really love it. It got a huge response.”
He later opens on just why the two work so well together: “I think both of them have a great appreciation and nostalgia and fondness for a more pure, more better version of Riverdale . . . a more wholesome version of Riverdale.”
“So I think that yearning to sort of prove that it can still be a place that is good and not some sort of place of darkness is what drove them both to really, truly see it take that iteration once again: a more childlike, a more beautiful, flowery kind of iteration. And I think that similar passion is also the thing that sort of brought them close at the end of the day, and I think there’s truth in that.”
We love Bughead!
