Cheryl Blossom Could Be Even More of a Mean Girl in 'Riverdale' Season 2

Cheryl Blossom Could Be Even More of a Mean Girl in 'Riverdale' Season 2

Madelaine Petsch cozies up to boyfriend Travis Mills on the red carpet at Entertainment Weekly’s annual Comic-Con party over the weekend.

The Riverdale starlet and her musician boyfriend were also spotted at the NYLON and NVE After-Con event on Saturday night (July 22).

Madelaine opened up about Cheryl Blossom at the annual event, revealing that fans can expect to see a soft side and a new mean side to Cheryl in season two.

“She’s seeked help, she’s making a conscious decision to take control of her life and to be happier in her right, which doesn’t necessarily mean she’s going to be happier with other people involved,” Madelaine explained.

She adds, “She’s taking control, getting meaner and colder to people around her because it’s the only way she can feel protected. To the outside world, she will be a lot meaner, but in her head she’s just doing what she can to cope.”

Riverdale season two will premiere in October on The CW.

Madelaine Petsch Says 'No One Knew' About 'Riverdale' Finale Shooting (Exclusive)

Madelaine Petsch Says 'No One Knew' About 'Riverdale' Finale Shooting (Exclusive)

Madelaine Petsch was just as surprised as the rest of us when she found out that – SPOILER ALERT – Fred Andrews (Luke Perry) was shot in the Riverdale finale.

The 22-year-old actress recently talked to us about how she learned about the super-secretive scene.

“That was a secret scene that they added. I though the ending was me burning down the house, so we had no idea,” Madelaine told JJJ. “They added an extra day to film that scene and I was filming all my water stuff while they were doing that. I heard a gunshot and I was like, ‘What was that?’ And then I saw these red pages and I was like ‘Oh! A deleted scene…let’s read.’ No one knew.”

Riverdale is set to return this fall on The CW.

Madelaine Petsch Was 'Mercilessly Bullied' Over Her Red Hair When She Was Younger

Madelaine Petsch Was 'Mercilessly Bullied' Over Her Red Hair When She Was Younger

Take one look at Madelaine Petsch and you think – her hair is amazing.

The 22-year-old Riverdale star has the most gorgeous red hair, but surprisingly, she used to be bullied over it.

“I was mercilessly bullied,” Madelaine told Stylecaster.com. “I was a little kid with a South African accent and bright red hair. I was the weirdest kid in this small town in Washington.”

“I was the only person who was from somewhere else, so I think they just didn’t understand it,” she continued. “They said I was a weirdo or that I didn’t belong there. That was the hardest one when people said I didn’t belong there.”

“I was bullied a lot for having red hair,” Madelaine explained. “It really affected me in the beginning because I was the only kid, especially first through sixth grade, who was really mercilessly bullied, and I never really understood why.”

Madelaine added, “After playing Cheryl, I realized the bullying doesn’t come from anything, but insecurities in oneself. The people who are bullying you, they’re insecure about who they are and that’s why they’re bullying you. It never has to do with the person they’re bullying. They desperately want to be loved and be accepted, and they go out of their way to make people feel unaccepted so that they’re not alone.”

Pictured: Madelaine wears a purple hoodie while touching down at the airport on Sunday (July 16) in Vancouver, Canada.

FYI: Madelaine is wearing Vans shoes.

Not much is known about her character just yet, but in case you don’t watch, OUAT is set in the fictional seaside town of Storybrooke, Maine, where residents are characters from various fairy tales transported to the “real world” town and robbed of their original memories by a powerful curse.

Madelaine Petsch Dishes On Perfecting the Villain in Cheryl Blossom

Madelaine Petsch Dishes On Perfecting the Villain in Cheryl Blossom

Riverdale‘s Cheryl Blossom has already dethroned all our favorite TV villains as our absolute villain — and it’s all thanks to actress Madelaine Petsch.

Speaking with High Snobiety, Madelaine opened up on how she perfected Cheryl’s villainious ways.

“They [villains] have to be believable and I think they have to have a justifiable reason for why they do what they do,” she shared. “I think that’s why people love to hate Cheryl.”

Madelaine adds, “She’s got so much going on behind the curtain, but I think people understand the façade that she puts up. It’s very important for a villain to be liked and appreciated.

She also chatted about how the role of a villain has evolved over the years, and how it helped to shape Cheryl.

“Social media has played a huge part in that,” she says. “Look at Heathers versus Mean Girls. Gossip Girl as well. They’re all very much the same, if you really look at it.”

“The fashion has evolved, but I think all mean girls have dope style and that’s very interesting,” Madelaine shared. “But they do all share similar characteristics no matter what genre or generation they’re placed in.”
