Riverdale's Vanessa Morgan Loves Playing a Bisexual Character on Television

Vanessa Morgan is all smiles while attending the Sunglass Hut Summer Solstice Soiree at the Hotel Americano in New York City on Thursday (June 21).

The 26-year-old Riverdale actress recently opened up about playing a bisexual character on television, something that she’s extremely grateful for.

“I don’t think it’s represented as much as it should be in the media, so I love being able to represent that love is love,” Vanessa shared.

Vanessa also played a bisexual character, Lyria, on The Shannara Chronicles.

She adds, “I personally believe that you fall in love with a person’s soul regardless of their gender. I love people coming up to me and saying, ‘Because of them I was able to come out to my family,’ because I didn’t have that growing up.”

“I didn’t have somebody that I could relate to being biracial. So I love that people can now see that and have somebody that they’re like, ‘Oh, that’s like me.’”

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.”
