‘Five Feet Apart’ Star Cole Sprouse Filmed the Movie in Between Seasons of ‘Riverdale’


There are few actors that can claim that they have accomplished acting at two jobs at the same time. Filming is normally an all-day affair with little breaks and short nights. Filming a series like Riverdale means constant work for weeks on end with little time for anything else. So, how did Cole Sprouse manage to not only ace his role on Riverdale as Jughead Jones but capture the heart of the world with his lead role in Five Feet Apart?

Sprouse left his childhood acting to pursue an academic career in archeology, geographic information systems, and satellite imaging according to the Los Angeles Times. After graduation, his agent contacted him to request that he audition for a pilot series. The two came to an agreement that if he did not land a role, Sprouse would be free to continue his academic career. He was cast as Jughead Jones in Riverdale shortly after.
