Riverdale's Ashleigh Murray Says Candice Patton Paved The Way For Her To Play Josie McCoy

Riverdale's Ashleigh Murray Says Candice Patton Paved The Way For Her To Play Josie McCoy

Over the weekend, Ashleigh Murray gave some praise to Candice Patton, who paved the way for her to play Josie McCoy on Riverdale.

During the PopSugar Play/Ground panel, the two stars opened up about playing typically roles on television that were originally portrayed as white women.

“Comic book fans are very opinionated [and] very vocal,” Candice first shared, noting the comments she got when she first started to play Iris on The Flash. “So it was very scary stepping into that role when I started the show.”

She did get negative comments and dealing with the harassment wasn’t a walk in the park at all – but it did get better.

“Over time, people have embraced me and embraced this character, and I know it’s really important,” she said. “What’s great is that in years to come, people will remember Iris West as being African American.”

In fact, Candice playing Iris has paved the way for Ashleigh to play Josie, another typically white role.

Ashleigh, too, got the negative comments.

“Now it’s just white noise,” she shared. “I don’t even notice it or see it much anymore. And it’s probably thanks to [Candice], because if you had to go through it before I did, you probably made the transition a little bit easier.”

That’s an amazing legacy to have.

Both Riverdale and The Flash will return this fall on The CW.

Riverdale's Ashleigh Murray Spills Behind-the-Scenes Secrets About the Musical Episode

“You know, it was tough. On everybody. All around,” she said. “Most of us are not trained dancers. And we also didn’t get to learn the choreography together as a group. That whole opening sequence, where we’re all on stage with the chairs and the big circle and everything, the day that we shot it was the first time each and every one of us were in the same room at the same time doing the choreography together.”

“It came out so wonderful,” she added. “The crew was awesome. For me, it was also very nostalgic because I started out in theater, musical theater. I haven’t done it in a while. It made me miss it.”

Ashleigh also shared her thoughts on Josie forgiving Cheryl for traumatizing her.

“Josie forgiving Cheryl, it’s one of those things—I remember in high school, whenever I got into a tiff or had some issue with a friend, oftentimes it wouldn’t last that long,” she said. “Mostly because sometimes it’s easier to forgive them, and it takes so much more energy to be upset and to be mad. Sometimes all you’re looking for is an apology.”

'Riverdale' Cast Tease Black Hood's Return For Final Episodes of Season Two

'Riverdale' Cast Tease Black Hood's Return For Final Episodes of Season Two

Lili Reinhart and Camila Mendes stick together on the black carpet at the Riverdale panel during the 2018 PaleyFest held at Dolby Theatre on Sunday night (March 25) in Hollywood.

The two actors were joined by co-stars KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Ashleigh Murray, and Madelaine Petsch.

Riverdale “parents” Madchen Amick, Marisol Nichols, Skeet Ulrich, and Luke Perry also joined the party with executive producer Greg Berlanti and showrunner Roberto Aguirre Sacasa.

During the panel, the cast opened up about the return of Black Hood for the remainder of the season two episodes.

“I think the janitor being the Black Hood was something that [Archie] wasn’t going to buy,” KJ shared. “With more instances showing up that could hint towards the Black Hood still maybe being out there, it drives him to find justice.”

Roberto added that “We always knew it wasn’t going to be just the janitor, but for the last 10 episodes or so, we’ve had a pretty clear idea [of who it is] and have been writing towards that.”

TELL JJJ: Who do you think is the REAL Black Hood?

FYI: Camila is wearing an Emporio Armani dress, Schutz shoes, John Hardy earrings, and a Bare Collection ring. Lili is wearing a Maria Lucia Hohan dress and Monica Vinader jewelry. Cole is wearing a Bottega Veneta jacket and shirt. Madelaine wore an Alice + Olivia jumpsuit. Marisol is wearing Nouvel Heritage earrings.
