A2 Riverdale odd facts The series is inspired by the original comics which date back to 1939. This is why the style of the protagonists may look a bit old-fashioned. The episodes are filmed in Vancouver, Canada but people think that it s set near New York because of the cold weather, woodlands and small towns typical of New England. The actor who plays Archie is KJ Apa from New Zealand. His red hair has made him popular but he is not a redhead, he just had his hair dyed for the series.

When you describe someone, you must be sure that the reader or the listener forms a vivid impression of him or her. Here are three simple tips. Focus on personality first: a character s hair or eye colour doesn t tell much about him/her. Start your description from his/her personality details (i.e. he is a stubborn boy; she is a charismatic girl). Unique features: show what makes the person you describe unique or distinctive (i.e. his voice is dry, hard and very low; her face is very pale and her eyes really big). Work on details: focus your description on interests, points of strength, flaws , and fears of the person you are describing.
