Ashleigh Murray Opens Up About Why She Isn't a Huge Fan of a 'Riverdale' & 'Sabrina' Crossover

Ashleigh Murray Opens Up About Why She Isn't a Huge Fan of a 'Riverdale' & 'Sabrina' Crossover

There’s been a lot of talk about a potential crossover between Riverdale and it’s “spinoff” series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

While some stars of Riverdale would love to see the shows crossover somewhere down the line, Ashleigh Murray is not one of those people.

“I’m going to say no. And I say no because Sabrina is a very different world,” Ashleigh recently shared, during the POPSUGAR Playground Scream Queens panel. “And I don’t know how, if they’re going to play into her magical-ness, and if it’s not just her that has that situation.”

She adds, “Riverdale is so based in this type of reality that I’m not sure that bringing the two together… is something that you could walk away from. If it would be a one-off thing, then [it might be] fine if they’re able to separate the two.”

But, Vanessa Morgan, is a bit more open to it.

“I would love it if it does take place in Greendale,” she shared. “I was obsessed with Sabrina growing up. I love magic, I love all that stuff. I would love it if we went over.”

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.
