News surfaced this summer that Riverdale star Lili Reinhart and her on-screen love interest Cole Sprouse were pursuing a relationship in real life as well and while the two have neither confirmed or denied a romance, Reinhart has spoken out about her costar.
In a recent interview with W magazine, the actress dished on her first impressions of all her cast mates, including Cole! “I think KJ [Apa] was so hot, so charming,” she confessed. “I had seen Cole and Camila [Mendes] at the studio test, and thought Cami was so beautiful. It’s funny I don’t really remember having an opinion on Cole, to be honest. Of course, I had grown up watching [The Suite Life] but I wasn’t really starstruck. He just seemed like this really attractive, normal guy.”
Clearly her feelings of indifference quickly changed after playing love interests Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones on screen! Their real life relationship made news after the two were caught getting quite close during the 2017 Comic-Con and their new love seems to have remained quite strong ever since.
As for her own life, Reinhart seemingly became an instant star overnight after the highly-popular premiere of Riverdale. She admitted that the success is something that definitely shocked her. “The show took off in such a way that fame followed very quickly after, and it wasn’t really a smooth transition,” she confessed.
“It was just kind of like, ‘Bam.’ It wasn’t a bad thing, but all of a sudden I’m doing all these things and a year ago, I was just starting to film season one, and two years ago, I was living in North Carolina with my parents.”
Riverdale season 2 kicks off October 11 on The CW.
