19 Mar – AC Bonifacio recently admitted that she was elated to be given the opportunity to work with Madelaine Petsch in the new episode of the teen series, "Riverdale".

The Canadian-Filipina star, who spoke to Richard Juan on his "Your dose of inspirASIAN" podcast, stated that she has always been a big fan of the said actress, which made the experience even more overwhelming.

"We shot with them two times, once in December and once in January. So that part there as a Star Vixen is I am dance battling with Cheryl Blossom who is Madelaine Petsch in real life and it was such an amazing experience because I just watch her on Netflix and now I am beside her dance battling her."

"She was so nice too. She was like talking to me about dance and everything and she was like do you watch the show? I was like, 'Yeah I watch the show!' I was like, 'I watch your show! I love your show!' She was so nice," she enthused.

Asked if Petsch helped choreographed the dance battle between the two characters, Bonifacio stated that the dance was created by choreographer Heather Laura Gray.

"The choreographer Heather was also so nice and it was a very good experience. They gave me an initial choreography but she always said, 'If there's something you are more comfortable with we can change it or if there are any other tricks that you can do.' She kinda based it off of me... She was very kind in making it so that I was comfortable and that I was able to show off on what I am good at," she said.

Bonifacio added that she was happy to be able to represent Filipinos in the show and show off her talent as a dancer.

"I am very grateful to have book it and for it not to [just] be an acting part, but for me to be able to do what I love to do [and] what I am passionate about on that show too," she said.

Last week, Bonifacio shared a clip from her scene with Petsch, writing, "So grateful for this amazing opportunity. [Madelaine] was so so talented, I was in awe the whole time! And of course [Vanessa Morgan] who is so so pretty and professional despite her being pregnant!"
