After saying that she does not ever want to date a co-star, Camila Mendes revealed that she is dating Riverdale costar Charles Melton.
The 24-year-old confirmed the news with a cute picture on Instagram that she shared with her 11.9 million followers. The picture has been liked by more than 3.6 million people already. Mendes captioned it with a simple “Mine.”
In the photo, 27-year-old Melton is planting a kiss on Mendes’ forehead.
The couple’s costars reacted to the news. Reinhart posted a cute rose emoji while Vanessa Morgan wrote, “OBSESSED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
KJ Apa wrote, “Are u guys dating?”
Mendes replied, “I’m sorry you had to find out this way.”
Tommy Dorfman added, “WE OFFICIAL YAS SHIPSHIPSHIP.”
The two have been on each other social media for a long time, and have been seen doing activities together since the start of the show as well. Over Labor Day weekend, the costars were seen on a boat getaway with their fellow actors. The two sat together on the same towel, and Melton had his hand under Mendes’ back.
They were also seen together at the movies in Vancouver. An insider told E!, “Camila sat next to Charles and leaned on his shoulder. As the lights were dimming, my friend saw them kiss!”
Mendes recently broke up with ex Victor Houston in August. While talking to Nylon for an interview, Mendes said, “It’s just dating people in the industry is tough. I did for a little bit. I’ve just dated actors. It’s hard when that’s your world.”
The Riverdale set also has a couple in Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse.
