Madelaine Petsch Online

Back in March, Riverdale shut down production in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, much to fans’ and the actors’ disappointment. Since then, Madelaine Petsch, aka Cheryl Blossom, has been taking some much-needed chill time, reconnecting with nature, cooking at home, and using it as an opportunity to empower women about birth control as an ambassador for Lo Loestrin Fe.

As much as she’s enjoying her time off, she’s definitely ready to suit back up as Cheryl. “I’ve got to try to put a positive spin on it, but I definitely miss being at work — that’s when I’m happiest,” she tells BuzzFeed over the phone in an exclusive interview. Still, Madelaine has been finding plenty of joy during quarantine — below, she opens up about how she’s been staying busy, how she connects with Cheryl, and what Riverdale holds for fans when it does return.

What’s been your go-to method of unwinding these days?
“Meditation has been incredibly helpful for me, as well as a consistent workout routine — that keeps my depression level bearable right now. I work with a trainer and he gets me out of my head, which is what I need most for that hour every day.”

After coming home from a day of filming, how do you put distance between yourself and Cheryl Blossom?
“I don’t really feel like I need to, for the most part. I step into her shoes on set and then the minute I put my clothes back on, I’m Madelaine again. It doesn’t affect me like that. But if it’s been an emotionally trying day on set, I’ll take a bath, light a candle, and read a book. I think about how my job is basically to create an escape for people for that hour a day, and when I come home from creating that, I need to find my escape for that hour a day [laughs].”
