Madelaine Looks Gorgeous for Jute Magazine!
Riverdale’s red-headed beauty, Madelaine Petsch, plays the complicated mean queen, Cheryl Blossom, on The CW’s new hit series based on Archie Comics. She looks gorgeous for Jute Magazine where in an interview she dishes on everything from playing Cheryl on Riverdale to her upcoming new movie, “F*&% the Prom” and even life in Hollywood. Check out a sneak peek of the interview with Madelaine below.
What makes Cheryl a complicated character?
Cheryl grew up with parents that didn’t care for her or show her any sign of affection, in fact they constantly put her down. She found solace with her twin brother, Jason, who protected her from the harshness of her parents and loved her unconditionally. She puts up this tough mean girl facade to hide the broken, sad and lonely little girl on the inside who’s trying to figure herself out and doing a very good job. As the season unfolds more secrets about Cheryl’s life that only breaks her down even more. She has so many layers and at any given moment is feeling a hundred things.
Were you already familiar with the comics when you joined the show or did you have you study up?
I was already familar with the comics! I used to read ythe Sunday strip in the newspaper when I was a kid. However, I wasn’t familiar with Cheryl so I did a little research on her.
Which citizen of Riverdale are you most like and why?
That is a tough question! I feel like if you put pieces from each one together that would be me. I relate to so many of them on so many different levels.
Jughead’s dry sarcastic wit and ability to say whatever’s on his mind. Veronica’s desire to help people more and better herself. Betty’s pressure she puts on herself. Cheryl’s sass and confidence, and Josie’s passion for life and dreaming big. That’s probably not the answer you were looking for but I can’t pick just one!!
