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!”
