Today is Madelaine’s birthday, so a happy birthday from us!

Madelaine Petsch is truly fascinated by her body. If you’ve caught an episode of CW’s Riverdale, it’s not hard to see why. But it goes way beyond the physical.

“The thing I love most about my body is how perplexed I am about all the things it can do,” she explained in the latest Body Scan video for Women’s Health. “The more I learn about my body the more fascinated I am by it.”

Madelaine’s also moving that bod a lot. She works out with trainer Stephen Pasterino, creator of Pvolve. Workouts are as much about Madelaine’s mental health as they are for her muscles. “The more I move the happier I’ll be. I link my mental health to working out.”

But still, she’s all about the abs, and it shows. “The body part I love exercising the most is my abs. I think that my abs feel the most pain and I love the feeling of being sore.”

It doesn’t take long for her to Feel. The. Burn. “My trainer does this thing called six-minute abs, which is honestly deathly. They are the hardest thing ever.” He doesn’t tell me what it is, every minute or 30 seconds he’ll switch to a new thing but he’ll never tell me because then my brain can’t anticipate it.”

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].”
