The cast of the hit Netlix series “Riverdale” surprised Filipino fans on Thursday with their reenactment of iconic lines from Philippine films, including “Darna” and “One More Chance.”
The video, which features stars KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, and Camila Mendes, was released on Facebook as part of Netflix’s promotional campaign, in partnership with a Philippine telecom giant.
Apa, who plays the lead character Archie in “Riverdale,” delivered a memorable line of Popoy, portrayed by John Lloyd Cruz, in the Star Cinema film “One More Chance.”
Mendes’ catty role as Veronica wasn’t far from the Filipino character she channeled. Minus the wine splashing, she acted out Cherie Gil’s oft-spoofed line in “Bituing Walang Ningning.”
Reinhart, who portrays Betty, had a softer take on Nora Aunor’s iconic line from “Himala,” which was translated into English.
Meanwhile, Sprouse’s role as the brooding Jughead couldn’t be farther from his delivery of Darna’s line across movie and TV iterations, asking assistance from his sidekick.
Not part of the actual reenactment, Sprouse followed up with a question that drew audible laughter: “Is this when I swallow the stone whole and turn into a superhero?”
