Riverdale's Vanessa Morgan Says She 'Won the Lottery' Playing Madelaine Petsch's Love Interest!

Love this – Vanessa Morgan is dishing on how lucky she feels to play Madelaine Petsch‘s love interest on Riverdale!

The actress opened up about Choni during the POPSUGAR Play/Ground event on Sunday (June 10).

Vanessa revealed that joining the cast for season two “was obviously very nerve-racking for me. They already created their own little family, so joining season two I was nervous if people would like me.”

“[Madelaine] kind of brought me to set and showed me around,” she said about her real-life bestie. “So I instantly felt at home.”

“It’s like I won the lottery,” Vanessa shared. “Not only am I going to be on the same show as my best friend, but now we get to be girlfriends. Instead of kissing one of the actors on the show, it might as well be your best friend.”

Vanessa added that she is thankful that she gets to portray a bisexual character on TV. “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,” she said. “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.’”

Vanessa Morgan Thinks It's a Good Thing 'Riverdale' Cut That Choni Scene From The Finale - Here's Why

Vanessa Morgan Thinks It's a Good Thing 'Riverdale' Cut That Choni Scene From The Finale - Here's Why

Vanessa Morgan broke our heart, and then lifted it right back up!

The Riverdale actress admitted in a new interview that she thinks it was a good idea that her scene with Madelaine Petsch was cut from the season two finale. Before you have a heart attack like us, read on:

“That gives us season three to further explore relationship instead of getting super serious too soon and moving in together,” she shared with ET. “You know, [something like] that could maybe lead to bad things for such a new couple.”

Vanessa adds, “I really think we’re saving all the Choni for season three, I really do — that’s what I’ve been told anyways. So I’m really looking forward to seeing season three.”

Okay, we see her point.

And showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa did explain why the scene was cut, too – not enough time!

“I will tell you though, and I will let all of the Choni fans know, that I’m the biggest Choni fan,” he says. “If scenes didn’t make it into the final cut, they will be on the DVD and we will try to release them and I can promise you that there are big stories ahead for Choni.”

Bring on more Choni!
