What These Riverdale Actors *Actually* Looked Like When They Were Their Characters’ Ages
Shannon Purser (Ethel Muggs)
Poor Barb. While Nancy Wheeler’s best friend didn’t have the best luck on Stranger Things, she did manage to become a fan favorite IRL. Shannon Purser was cast in her acting debut on the Netflix hit when she was just one year older than her Riverdale character, Ethel Muggs, who come to think of it doesn’t have the greatest luck either. While we can’t find any photos of Shannon from her pre-fame days, we’re pretty sure her Riverdale look is pretty close to a real high school senior’s.
