Cole Sprouse has opened up about the devastating impact Luke Perry’s death has had on him and the Riverdale cast.

The 26-year-old was asked how the Riverdale cast was handling the shocking news in a press junket for his new film, Five Feet Apart.

‘We’re recovering, yeah,’ Cole told TV host Andrew Freund.

“It’s obviously not the easiest thing to talk about, but he was well-loved and there’s been an outpouring of emotional support from people around the world, which just goes to show what a wonderful person he was and how much he impacted people’s lives and impacted our lives.”

“But I know that his family has requested privacy during this period and I respect that quite a bit,” he said.


The Riverdale actor provided a similar statement to Extra when asked how he was handling the news. 

“We are all recovering. Everyone says great things about him because he is a great guy.”

Cole’s interview comes after the show dedicated last night’s episode to the late star, who played Fred Andrews.
