Cole Sprouse is one of those actors who seemed to grow up in front of fans’ eyes. He has been everywhere from portraying Ben on Friends to starring alongside Adam Sandler in 1999’s Big Daddy and then of course landing his own Disney series with his twin brother Dylan in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody from 2005 to 2008 and The Suite Life on Deck from 2008 to 2011. After a hiatus, he is now back and all grown up starring as Jughead Jones in the CW’s hit new teen drama Riverdale.

As his star is quickly rising, here are 10 things you never knew about the actor:
10. Disney Life
Cole Sprouse is one of the few former Disney stars who seemingly didn’t have to go completely off the rails in order to develop his career as an adult. He is also one of the few to speak fondly of his Disney days and credits it with giving him a good work ethic from a very early age. “That show gave me a profound work ethic. I never missed a day of work in the eight years I was there, and it really taught me to push myself and drive myself.” Eventually the twins made a decision to leave the network in order to find themselves.
9. Celebrity Crush
Since he has worked in the industry since he was a child, Cole Sprouse has met his fair share of celebrities, but like so many others he couldn’t help but crush on Jennifer Aniston when he was working on the set of Friends. “I had a really, really hard time working with Aniston because I was so in love with her. I was infatuated. I was speechless — I’d get all bubbly and forget my lines and completely blank. Ir was so difficult,” he said of his crush.
