Fan Fest Chicago: ‘Riverdale’ Panel Highlights Feat. Lili Reinhart and Madelaine Petsch

Published on April 7th, 2018 | Updated on April 7th, 2018 | By FanFest

Riverdale has taken the world by storm as of late, and we got to hear two of its cast members give a panel at Fan Fest Chicago this weekend.

Lili Reinhart and Madelaine Petsch chatted with fans about that intense and quasi-creepy relationship that exists between Betty and Chic.


After answering the all important questions, “Where are KJ and Cole,” Reinhart and Petsch comment on their first reactions to finding out their characters were related:


What if these ladies hadn’t decided to pursue acting? Reinhart had a plan B in mind.  She would be saving lives as a paramedic.


It sounds like the ladies could have had an alternate career in musical theater! They dished on their excitement about the upcoming musical episode of Riverdale:


Could you imagine Madelaine Petsch as an auctioneer? Turns out quick wit and speedy delivery come naturally to her!


Petsch also did a little season 2 teasing.  She says that Choni shippers are going to be very, VERY pleased with what the upcoming season has in store:


Lili and Madelaine found their passion for acting at a young age and two of today’s most iconic Hollywood stars helped them make the decision to pursue their career.


We’re so excited that Lili and Madelaine have joined us this weekend!  These two will be busy all weekend, meeting and greeting with fans and posing for photos!


Be sure to catch them at Fan Fest Chicago and tune in to Riverdale Wednesdays at 8 PM ET on the CW.
