Let's be real, Cheryl Blossom didn't really have the best time in the first season of Riverdale, so we imagine it wouldn't have been easy to play it out.
The IRL Chezza, Madelaine Petsh has opened up about how hard it was to bring the unforch character to life.
“The parental abuse was very difficult to bring out,” she revealed in a recent interview.
“I come from a very supportive home, so to create this persona was very dark.”
She went on to add that her own personal experiences made the role particularly difficult for her.
“I lost a best friend a couple of years ago and that was kind of what I had to tap and think about on a daily basis,” she shared.
“I always say actors are the people who try to feel everyone else’s suffering. I had to bring up some things that I didn’t really wanna think about, but it worked, right?”
Either way, you smashed it Maddy!
