‘Riverdale’ Adds Vanessa Morgan as Bisexual Archie Comics Character Toni Topaz

Toni, who will be played by The Shannara Chronicles’ Vanessa Morgan, is a “vivacious” member of the Southside Serpents, who is known for her signature pink hair and impressive appetite.

In the Archie Comics, it’s strongly hinted that Toni is bisexual and Riverdaleexecutive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa confirmed to ET that season two will “explore” this topic.

The showrunner also revealed that Toni might mean “trouble” for Betty and Jughead’s relationship.

Now we know that Caroline is going to be in the first episode of The Originals Season 5… I was wondering if she and Klaus will have scenes together? Yes! Yes, she and Klaus will have at least three scenes together because I read them and beyond that I don’t know. But yeah, we’ll see. Anything can happen. This is the end.
