What These Riverdale Actors *Actually* Looked Like When They Were Their Characters’ Ages
Charles Melton (Reggie Mantle)
We learned a lot in our desperate deep-dive attempt to find a picture of Charles Melton during his high school football days. Like, for example, we had no idea the Riverdale stud even *had* high school football days. Mr. Cami Mendes was apparently a superstar athlete in high school and there’s tons of game footage online from when Charles was reaching out to college recruiters. That obviously panned out because this photo is from when Charles was playing football his Freshman and Sophomore years at Kansas State University. It’s not exactly a picture of Reggie 2.0 at seventeen, but it’s close enough to let us know that he might’ve actually been able to take teenage KJ in a fight.
