While his character’s storyline gave viewers a bit of scare, making us question if his role would be written off the show, Cole opened up to Variety Live! about continuing to work on Riverdale.
“For me, as long as the show that I’m working on — Riverdale — is one that I continue to have fun on and work with all my closest friends, which I do, it’s a privilege to be a working actor,” he said.
Adding, “I think to sit and stare at something in the face — and you can laugh at yourself and you can criticize something you’ve worked for — but I think it’s incredibly pretentious and ignorant to look at something that you are blessed to have and go like, ‘I’m done.'”
Cole also explained that due to The CW series’ huge fanbase, he gets to continue acting alongside his friends and fellow castmates.
“Something has a shelf life. But, I think Riverdale has a large audience and very many people enjoy it. Many people have fun and it brings them joy. And as long as I can do that and inspire something like that, through whatever narrative it is, then that’s like the currency of acting,” he told Variety.
