In case you didn’t know, Riverdale co-stars Camila Mendes and Charles Melton — who are love interests on the show — are dating IRL. Oh, and they’re adorable as heck.
Charles also happens to be starring in the new film The Sun Is Also a Star, alongside Yara Shahidi.
In honor of the movie’s premiere, Camila took to Instagram to write her boyfriend the sweetest, most supportive message I think I’ve ever read, tbh.
She said, “I remember the day @melton told me about this project. We were still just friends then. He hadn’t even been cast yet. They hadn’t even started casting. All he told me was ‘I’m going to play this role. I am Daniel Bae.’”
“Watching him throw his entire heart and soul into this story of love taught me a lot about the kind of person he is.”
“Aside from having the biggest heart out of anyone I know, his passion and tenacity are part of the reason I fell in love with him.”
“I’m probably sharing too much, but before we dated, he’d often get mad at me for trying to bring logic into love. He taught me that love doesn’t have an explanation. It either exists or it doesn’t.”
“It was his vulnerability, not only as an actor, but also as a man, that taught me that valuable message — one that is so relevant to this film.”
“I’m so proud of you, Charles, and so grateful to have witnessed this beautiful journey of yours. Can’t wait for the world to see what you’re capable of ♥️. Happy premiere day!! #thesunisalsoastar.”
As if that wasn’t emotional enough, Charles replying, “I love you,” really sent me over the edge. 😭❤️😭❤️😭❤️
