Camila Mendes Talks Varchie on 'Riverdale': 'They've Definitely Been Friskier'

Camila Mendes Talks Varchie on 'Riverdale': 'They've Definitely Been Friskier'

While Bughead may be on the rocks a bit on Riverdale, Varchie is heating up.

Camila Mendes didn’t waste any time in saying that Veronica and Archie are “even more sexual now” in season two, while chatting with EW.

She adds, “Death brings out certain passions or thirst for life. So they’ve definitely been friskier.”

However, that doesn’t mean that’s all this couple is about: “I think now because of all this darkness and stuff in Archie’s life and Veronica’s as well, their relationship does feel more grounded,” Camila says.

“It has more substance than just physical.”

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says about this couple that “it’s sort of a bit more primal and volatile than say Jughead and Betty are.”

Riverdale returns on Wednesday, October 11th on The CW.

Cole Sprouse Dishes On Impact of 'Bughead' in 'Entertainment Weekly's Fall TV Preview Issue

The cast of Riverdale heats up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.

The core four — KJ Apa, Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse — pose together on the cover of the Fall TV Preview issue, a cover which they won with a ton of fan votes.

The cast opens up in the issue about the upcoming season ahead, with Cole touching about the impact of Bughead.

“Since the show began, people have wanted Lili and I to be together. People have wanted Lili and Camila to be together. People have wanted KJ and I to be together. People have wanted every actor on this show to be in a union that they could make real…” he says.

Cole adds, “But truthfully, it’s very pleasing that people talk about Lili and I in that way because it means that we’re resonating so strongly that people really want that to be true.”

Riverdale returns on October 11th on The CW, and the issue is on newsstands THIS Friday, September 15th.

'Riverdale' Scoop: Fred Andrews' Shooting Puts Everyone On The 'Defensive'

'Riverdale' Scoop: Fred Andrews' Shooting Puts Everyone On The 'Defensive'

Vanessa Morgan is all decked out as Toni Topaz on the set of Riverdale in Vancouver, Canada on Thursday afternoon (September 7).

The newcomer to the crew was seen with red streaks in her hair for her character, while co-stars KJ Apa and Charles Melton were spotted heading out for a workout together.

Speaking with TVLine, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacassa hinted at what’s ahead for the show’s second season.

First things first: Fred Andrews.

The hunt for the hooded gunman “leads into darker chapters of Riverdale’s history, and puts all of our characters on the defensive,” he says.

As for Bughead and Varchie, there are challenges coming to both couples: “It’s almost like every force in the universe is out to pry Bughead apart.”

He adds, “There are going to be problems coming in multiple different directions, besieging both of our couples.

Riverdale returns in October on The CW.

KJ Apa is NOT a Fan of That Gif of Himself Blinking on 'Riverdale'

The now-viral gif of KJ Apa blinking is applicable for so many situations! It can be the perfect response to seeing something gross, surprising, or even just getting a contact stuck in your eye.

That said, KJ himself is not a fan.

“I hated that gif,” the 20-year-old Riverdale actor told Holly Bytes in a video interview.

“The first time I saw it… Lili I think was the first one to tweet it. I hated it so much, I was like ‘Why would you upload that?’ Also why would Warner Bros make that gif?”

LOL we had no idea he felt so strongly!

“I look like the biggest idiot,” KJ continued. “So yeah, not happy about it actually. Not happy.”

Riverdale's KJ Apa Failed Another Pop Quiz & It's Hilarious

Riverdale's KJ Apa Failed Another Pop Quiz & It's Hilarious

KJ Apa probably isn’t the biggest fan of quizzes now, after taking all of these while promoting Riverdale recently.

We mean, we can’t fault him much for failing this actual Riverdale quiz because it was seriously impossible — but this new quiz which had him name high schools on television programs is something that he definitely should’ve known.

Out of the 10 high schools, he got only 2 right! We’re just thankful that KJ got Riverdale High right.

However, he didn’t get Rydell High (Grease) or even Liberty High (13 Reasons Why) right though…we have a feeling former co-star Ross Butler might be talking to him about that one.

KJ Apa Says That Cole Sprouse is the Worst Backseat Driver

KJ Apa Says That Cole Sprouse is the Worst Backseat Driver

KJ Apa and Cole Sprouse spend so much time together on the set of Riverdale that they are bound to get annoyed with each other from time to time.

In a new video interview, KJ gets candid about his brotherly love for Cole, detailing his favorite and least favorite attributes about his friend.

“The best thing is that he’s got a sick car,” the 20-year-old actor told Melissa Nathoo of On Demand Entertainment.

As for the worst, apparently Cole is an insufferable backseat driver.

“If I’m driving and he’s in the passenger seat he’s the biggest backseat driver,” KJ continued, “Honestly, he is the worst. It’s so annoying. Like, he’s looking around as if I’ve never driven a car before. He’ll warn you about something like, ‘Watch it, watch it, watch it,’ and I’m like ‘Mate — I can see it.’ You might as well just let him drive.”

Your move, Cole. Is it time for another ugly picture war?
