Madelaine Grobbelaar Petsch (born August 18, 1994[2]) is an American actress and YouTuber.[3][4][5] She is known for portraying Cheryl Blossom on The CW television series Riverdale and Marissa in F the Prom.

Early life

Petsch was born on August 18, 1994 in Port Orchard, Washington.[2][6][7][8][9] At the age of three, she began dance classes, and two years later enrolled in theater classes.

Career

Petsch appeared in a national advertising campaign for Coca-Cola in 2014. In February 2016, she was cast as Cheryl Blossom in The CW's Riverdale,[16] having been pinned for the role since late 2015 after meeting the casting director, who was at the time working on Legends of Tomorrow.[17] The series began filming in September of that year and premiered on January 26, 2017.[18] In March 2017, she joined the cast of the film Polaroid, which was released in 2019.[19]

In April 2018, Petsch collaborated with sunglasses company Privé Revaux and released her own collection of sunglasses.[20] Petsch has a YouTube channel, stating that the inspiration to start one was so fans could know the real her outside of acting.[21]
