While speaking with i-D, Charles said that Riverdale “helped me refine this work ethic,” adding, “I learned so much being there. I formed relationships that I will have until the end of my days.”
Charles also credited the show for teaching him what it would be like to attend a professional acting program.
“Riverdale truly was my Juilliard — I was learning and growing and playing and taking risks,” Charles said. “I was allowed to do that.”
Charles played football player Reggie Mantle for all seven seasons of the show before it ended in August 2023.
Charles admitted that wrapping Riverdale was “bittersweet,” before adding, “But I’m so happy it brought joy to so many people.”
In another recent interview, Charles opened up about the “annoying process” of having to wear a prosthetic for nine hours while filming May December.
