The 23-year-old talked about everything from her favorite part about playing Cheryl Blossom (her complexity) to her first impression meeting Camila Mendes (intimidated) to all of the non-acting jobs she’s had in her life to make rent (too many to count).


One fan asked Madelaine if she lived in the Riverdale universe who she would be friends with.

“Betty,” she answered. “She cares so much about other people and she’s so invested in her friendships. She would make a lovely, loyal friend.”

We love how open Madelaine is with her fans. Watch the full video below!

Vanessa Morgan Wants Her 'Riverdale' Character To Date Cheryl Blossom

Vanessa Morgan Wants Her 'Riverdale' Character To Date Cheryl Blossom

Vanessa Morgan is coming into Riverdale as the only girl in a gang of guys, and she has some ideas as to just who Toni Topaz, who is bisexual, could be hooking up with.

Her number one? Cheryl Blossom!

“Because Madelaine Petsch is my best friend in real life,” Vanessa revealed in a recent interview with Bustle.

She may be messing with Bughead’s relationship status in the upcoming episodes, but there’s nothing that says Toni can’t find love with Cheryl.

In fact, Madelaine also told JJJ that she hopes Cheryl gets to explore her sexuality in season two.

“I hope she explores a love interest and explores sexuality a little bit more – and isn’t necessarily vanilla – and wants to explore all grounds of sexuality. That would be interesting to see,” Madelaine shared.

Who knows — THIS could happen!

Riverdale will premiere on Wednesday, October 11th on The CW.

Lili Reinhart's Betty Cooper is the 'Queen of Fixing Cars' on 'Riverdale'

Lili Reinhart's Betty Cooper is the 'Queen of Fixing Cars' on 'Riverdale'

It looks like we will see mechanic Betty Cooper on Riverdale after all!

Archie Comics revealed another pic from season two today with Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart in their jeans inside a garage together.

“Whether it’s in the comics or on #Riverdale, Betty Cooper is the queen of fixing cars,” the account shared — and yes, we are so ready for it!

In the first pic, we were under the impression that Jughead is showing Betty the ropes around the garage — and we’re really hoping that that’s still true, but more so, that she outshines him in fixing cars, and everything else.

Vanessa Morgan Teases That Toni Topaz Brings a 'Bit of Trouble' To Bughead on 'Riverdale'

Vanessa Morgan is here to bring some trouble — and honestly, we’re here for it.

The actress joined the second season of Riverdale as Toni Topaz, the only girl in the Southside Serpents gang, who is definitely there to welcome Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse).

“I stir it up a bit for Bughead,” Vanessa told Bustle over the weekend. “I’m part of Southside. I’m one of Jughead’s first friends… I bring a bit of trouble.”

She adds that Toni will be on the frontline when it comes to Bughead’s problems when the series returns, too.

“I’m the girl in the gang,” Vanessa adds. “My character is badass, and Jughead is the son of the King Serpent… why wouldn’t I [welcome] him?”

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

Supergirl's Melissa Benoist Visited 'Riverdale' In Her Super Suit & Now We Want a Crossover

Supergirl's Melissa Benoist Visited 'Riverdale' In Her Super Suit & Now We Want a Crossover

Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has the internet freaking out right now.

Melissa Benoist, who plays Supergirl, popped over to the Riverdale set for a visit and the showrunner shared a pic of her in costume on the set while they were filming last night.

“Look who dropped in to #Riverdale for a visit! Worlds colliding!! Can a crossover be far behind??” he captioned — and now that he’s suggested it, we now need it.

While there’s no supernatural element to Riverdale right now, there’s no rule that says it couldn’t happen.

Superheroes have crossed into the realm of Archie comics — we mean, Sabrina the Teenage Witch is the prime example. So, a Supergirl cameo wouldn’t be unheard of.

Riverdale season 2 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 11 at 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

'Riverdale' Debuts Dark Poster For Season 2

'Riverdale' Debuts Dark Poster For Season 2

Riverdale has just debuted their season 2 poster and there’s a major clue on it that no one seems to be noticing.

While not a lot is known about the the upcoming season, we do know that much of the mystery revolves around Betty.

“The mystery of season 2 revolves a lot around Betty,” Lili Reinhart shared in a recent interview. “We’re touching on a lot of her internal darkness, and I want to show the dark side of this perfect girl.”

She adds, “Just kind of dig into her real anxious personality and where that anxiety comes from and the pressures of being perfect, just get to the root of that and see it come to the surface more.”

But, what about the N and R dimmed out in Pop’s shop Diner sign on the poster?! DOES THIS MEAN FRED DIES? PLEASE NO!

Check out the full poster below!

“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.”

Lili Reinhart Kind Of Shoots Down Theories That Joaquin Is Betty Cooper's Secret Brother on 'Riverdale'

Lili Reinhart Kind Of Shoots Down Theories That Joaquin Is Betty Cooper's Secret Brother on 'Riverdale'

A month or two ago, there was this pretty solid fan theory about Joaquin possibly being Betty Cooper’s secret brother on Riverdale — and now, Lili Reinhart is shattering it all to pieces.

The Riverdale actress spoke to Seventeen about that particular theory and debunked it all. Looks like Joaquin isn’t that secret brother after all, and that he’s still out there somewhere.

“I feel like I want to shut that theory down,” Lili says. “Maybe there was a romance between Alice and F.P., but Joaquín went on that bus to San Junipero and he’s just going, sadly for Kevin.”

She adds, “But you know what? I think that was for the benefit of my sweet little Kevin. I think you don’t want to see Kevin wrapped up in a Serpent. Even though Joaquín was a good guy, had a good heart.”

“It’s like, you want Kevin to be with someone who can be a bad boy but someone who maybe doesn’t get involved in murders. You know?”

Okay, so maybe she didn’t shut it completely down, but more put our attention elsewhere to Kevin’s relationships. Hmmm, we see what you did there Lili.
