Actress Vanessa Morgan has joined the cast of “Riverdale,” but she’s already facing some backlash!
Morgan is playing a character named Toni Topaz, who is rumored to cause tension between fan-favorite couple Jughead and Betty Cooper, who have been dubbed “Bughead."
The 25-year-old told Glamour, "I’ve already had some death threats. But the thing is, it’s half death threats because they don’t want that [actually] happening, and there’s half that’s just all love.”
Morgan dished on her character, saying, “She’s a Southside Serpent, a gang member, and Jughead’s first friend. So I might stir up the pot a bit with the Bughead relationship. There might be a little love triangle.”
Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart, who are playing the couple, are now dating in real life. Morgan gushed, "Lili and Cole are awesome, and they have been nothing but welcoming to me. It’s great doing scenes with them. I feel lucky that everyone has been so nice.”
“Riverdale” returns in October.
