Stranger Things alum and Riverdale star Shannon Purser is featured in the Fall 2017 issue of JUTE Magazine.
From the digital issue:
Shannon Purser’s appeal goes deeper than the roles she portrays. At barely 20, Purser has already attracted a cult-like following for her portrayals of Ethel Muggs in Riverdale and Barb Holland in Stranger Things in which she was nominated for a Primetime Emmy as a guest actress in a drama series.
On life outside of work: “I could most assuredly be a fangirl. My number one allegiance is to Harry Potter. I’m obsessed with everything about that series. Before I fell in love with the movies, I was in love with the books.”
On playing Barb on Stranger Things: “I guess Barb and I are pretty similar. I’m not as blunt as her, though.”
Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on the CW.
