Madelaine Petsch Doesn't Mind Being Mean to Lili Reinhart on 'Riverdale'

Madelaine Petsch Doesn't Mind Being Mean to Lili Reinhart on 'Riverdale'

Madelaine Petsch and Lili Reinhart may be BFFs IRL, but that certainly isn’t the case on Riverdale — and they’re okay with that.

“People ask me all the time: How can I be so mean to my best friends?” Madelaine recounted on Sweetwater Secrets, “but those are the people you want to do it with.”

“If I was to be an awful human being like Cheryl to people I didn’t know I would be mortified,” she continued.

That definitely makes sense: filming fighting scenes with your best friend would be much more comfortable than a complete stranger!

“It was really fun too to have the dynamic change between Betty and Cheryl,” Madelaine continued, referring to a scene from last week’s episode. “I think it was a really cool moment.”

Watch the full interview — and learn why she wishes she could play a Southside Serpent — below!

KJ Apa Opens Up About 'Riverdale' Fans & Shipping Wars!

KJ Apa Opens Up About 'Riverdale' Fans & Shipping Wars!

KJ Apa is discussing his fans in a new interview and photo shoot for Esquire, which is out now.

Here’s what the 20-year-old Riverdale star had to say:

On staying in shape: “I have to maintain a pretty tight physique, being shirtless pretty much every episode. I try to get to the gym every day. It takes a lot of stress out of stuff. It’s a long season. We’re doing 22 episodes in Season Two, and we’re about halfway through now. It’s crazy to think that right now last year we were finished. To think that we have 11 more episodes is a lot and overwhelming.”

On the high expectations Riverdale fans have for the second season, and the rabid “Shipping Wars” in particular: “I don’t really follow that stuff. I know the girls are really into that stuff, and I do hear about it at work. I find it cool that the fans get really involved in it and they stand by their shipping teams—if that’s how you say it, I don’t know. They’re ravenous, man. They will fight to end for these characters.”

On the car crash in late September: “That was just a one-off accident, and it was a mistake on my part. I should have pulled over and gone to sleep instead of battling my way home. But I learned from it. It was a blessing in disguise. I came out unscathed, and I thank God that I’m okay—it could have been a lot worse. The schedule didn’t change. It’s still a requirement for the actors to drive to work, which is fair enough. The crew works longer than we do, and they have to drive back and forth to work every day. It puts things in perspective for actors on other shows; when you’re driving home, you’ve got to be mindful and make sure your mind’s right and that you’re not tired. I was really lucky the production was there for me and helped me the whole way, which made me feel looked after.”

Cole Sprouse Reveals That Riverdale's Toni Topaz 'Has Her Own Agenda'

Cole Sprouse Reveals That Riverdale's Toni Topaz 'Has Her Own Agenda'

Toni Topaz came onto the scene for the first time in last week’s Riverdale episode, and the longtime cast members have a lot to say about Vanessa Morgan‘s new character.

“It’s kind of up in the air whether she’s actually helping or hindering Jughead,” Cole Sprouse told Sweetwater Secrets. “She has her own agenda and it’s revealed what that agenda is overtime. Toni is trying to coax him into the Serpents. She’s a character that resonates with Jughead mentally quite a bit so he has an easy time not seeing the red flags.”

As for the Bughead relationship, while Toni shakes up both Jughead and Betty’s life, she is not responsible for tearing them apart.

“Toni Topaz is the opposite of Betty,” Lili Reinhart said. “She does cause a rift a little bit, kind of a change in Betty’s world. She causes a little bit of trouble but she’s not like an enemy to the Bughead fans. I don’t really think of her character that way. She’s a lot more of Jughead’s ally on the South Side.”

See a sneak peek for tonight’s episode HERE.

Riverdale airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Archie Calling Out Black Hood In That Video Isn't The Dumbest Idea, 'Riverdale' Showrunner Teases

Archie Calling Out Black Hood In That Video Isn't The Dumbest Idea, 'Riverdale' Showrunner Teases

Archie Andrews isn’t stepping down from his plan to track down just who Black Hood is on Riverdale.

In tonight’s episode of the CW series, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says we’ll see even more of Archie’s mission.

“In Episode 4, the first chunk of the episode is that everyone has seen this [video],” he shared with TVGuide. “Everyone has an opinion on it. It really brings the heat down on Archie.”

He adds that Archie calling out a serial killer isn’t the dumbest idea ever, although it seems like it.


“What we’ll discover is that this is part of a bigger plan that Archie has to trap the Black Hood.”

Tune in TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

'Riverdale' Showrunner Says Series Will Touch on Issue of Consent For Varchie & More

'Riverdale' Showrunner Says Series Will Touch on Issue of Consent For Varchie & More

When it comes to television, sex sells… but it’s equally important for teen shows to demonstrate the importance of consent and of safe sex to their young audience.

In a new interview, creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa talks whether Riverdale addresses these everyday issues in season 2.

“We definitely address the issue of consent in an upcoming story,” he revealed to Glamour. “And yeah, our characters are more — especially Archie and Veronica — sexually active this season.”

“I definitely think Archie and Veronica have had a conversation, or many, in fact, about safe sex,” he continued. “I wouldn’t be surprised if a conversation like that happens soon on the show.”

We’re glad that Riverdale is addressing consent this season, and we hope the safe sex conversation is to come (especially considering how frisky Varchie is getting this season)!
