It all started with a rumor!

Any one of Madelaine Petsch‘s nearly 800K Youtube subscribers can tell what a sweetheart she is! The ‘Riverdale‘ actress updates her fans and followers weekly with tell-all Q&As, silly challenges and more! But before she began uploading content, fans of the show had a difficult time disconnecting her from her not-so-nice on-screen personality.

In a recent interview, the face of Cheryl Blossom revealed that she originally started her YouTube channel as a way of showing fans that she wasn’t the cold-hearted, mean person that she plays on the show. And even though she originally intended only posting a handful of videos, she ended up falling in love with the creative and editing processes behind-the-scenes and stuck with it:

“I began racking my brain to figure out a way to kind of shift that image…Originally, it was just intended to show my fans who I really am because they only see Cheryl.”
