Riverdale's Chad Michael Murray Reveals How He Prepped for 'Dream' Role

Chad Michael Murray is opening up about how he prepped for his “dream job” of playing cult leader Edgar Evernever on Riverdale.

The 37-year-old One Tree Hill actor stopped by E! News‘ “Daily Pop” to chat about the CW series.

Here’s what he had to share:

On his cult role in Riverdale: “It’s a dream job, it’s on the list of whoa! … As an actor, [when asked], ‘Do you want to play a cult leader?’ the answer is always ‘yes.’”

On his wife, Sarah Roemer, pushing him to do Riverdale: “For me, the wife is the one that pushed me in this direction. She’s an avid Riverdale fan, and she said, ‘You’re doing it, and that’s the last we’re going to talk about it,’ and I’m so grateful I did.”

On his wife and kids going to Vancouver with him while he films Riverdale: “I’m a father because I want to be there, I want to witness these things, I want to see every cornerstone and every moment and be a part of shaping who they are, so I’ve loved every minute of it.”
