Madelaine Petsch Says 'No One Knew' About 'Riverdale' Finale Shooting (Exclusive)

Madelaine Petsch was just as surprised as the rest of us when she found out that – SPOILER ALERT – Fred Andrews (Luke Perry) was shot in the Riverdale finale.

The 22-year-old actress recently talked to us about how she learned about the super-secretive scene.

“That was a secret scene that they added. I though the ending was me burning down the house, so we had no idea,” Madelaine told JJJ. “They added an extra day to film that scene and I was filming all my water stuff while they were doing that. I heard a gunshot and I was like, ‘What was that?’ And then I saw these red pages and I was like ‘Oh! A deleted scene…let’s read.’ No one knew.”

Riverdale is set to return this fall on The CW.

Madelaine Petsch Was 'Mercilessly Bullied' Over Her Red Hair When She Was Younger

Madelaine Petsch Was 'Mercilessly Bullied' Over Her Red Hair When She Was Younger

Take one look at Madelaine Petsch and you think – her hair is amazing.

The 22-year-old Riverdale star has the most gorgeous red hair, but surprisingly, she used to be bullied over it.

“I was mercilessly bullied,” Madelaine told Stylecaster.com. “I was a little kid with a South African accent and bright red hair. I was the weirdest kid in this small town in Washington.”

“I was the only person who was from somewhere else, so I think they just didn’t understand it,” she continued. “They said I was a weirdo or that I didn’t belong there. That was the hardest one when people said I didn’t belong there.”

“I was bullied a lot for having red hair,” Madelaine explained. “It really affected me in the beginning because I was the only kid, especially first through sixth grade, who was really mercilessly bullied, and I never really understood why.”

Madelaine added, “After playing Cheryl, I realized the bullying doesn’t come from anything, but insecurities in oneself. The people who are bullying you, they’re insecure about who they are and that’s why they’re bullying you. It never has to do with the person they’re bullying. They desperately want to be loved and be accepted, and they go out of their way to make people feel unaccepted so that they’re not alone.”

FYI: Madelaine is wearing Vans shoes.

Madelaine Petsch Dishes On Perfecting the Villain in Cheryl Blossom

Madelaine Petsch Dishes On Perfecting the Villain in Cheryl Blossom

Riverdale‘s Cheryl Blossom has already dethroned all our favorite TV villains as our absolute villain — and it’s all thanks to actress Madelaine Petsch.

Speaking with High Snobiety, Madelaine opened up on how she perfected Cheryl’s villainious ways.

“They [villains] have to be believable and I think they have to have a justifiable reason for why they do what they do,” she shared. “I think that’s why people love to hate Cheryl.”

Madelaine adds, “She’s got so much going on behind the curtain, but I think people understand the façade that she puts up. It’s very important for a villain to be liked and appreciated.

She also chatted about how the role of a villain has evolved over the years, and how it helped to shape Cheryl.

“Social media has played a huge part in that,” she says. “Look at Heathers versus Mean Girls. Gossip Girl as well. They’re all very much the same, if you really look at it.”

“The fashion has evolved, but I think all mean girls have dope style and that’s very interesting,” Madelaine shared. “But they do all share similar characteristics no matter what genre or generation they’re placed in.”

Riverdale's Madelaine Petsch Had A Hard Time With Cheryl Blossom Being On The Receiving End Of Parental Abuse

Riverdale's Madelaine Petsch Had A Hard Time With Cheryl Blossom Being On The Receiving End Of Parental Abuse

Cheryl Blossom has been through just about everything in season one of Riverdale.

The biggest thing was losing her twin brother, Jason, at the hands of her own father, Clifford. That would be hard to go through for anyone, but you have to add in her parents’ abuse, too.

All of that is one hard childhood, and it’s something that Madelaine Petsch had a hard time with.

“The parental abuse was very difficult to bring out,” she shared in a recent interview. “I come from a very supportive home, so to create this persona was very dark.”

Madelaine adds that losing someone close to you was also a difficult thing for her character.

“I lost a best friend a couple of years ago and that was kind of what I had to tap and think about on a daily basis,” she shared. “I always say actors are the people who try to feel everyone else’s suffering. I had to bring up some things that I didn’t really wanna think about, but it worked, right?”

Riverdale season two is currently filming.
