Filipino fans of the Netflix series Riverdale have been on the edge of their seats ever since it was announced that our very own AC Bonifacio will be making a cameo in the series—and now the streaming provider has just officially launched a sneak peek of her much-awaited scene in the show.
"There's a new vixen in town! Three cheers for AC Bonifacio! Can't wait to catch her in the latest episode of Riverdale," Netflix posted on their official Facebook page, together with a clip of AC having a dance-off with Madelaine Petsch who plays Cheryl Blossom.
AC is playing the role of Star Vixen, one of the new cheerleaders of Riverdale High's cheering squad. Not much is said about her character's background or whether she will appear in the next episodes, but she sure made a big impression with her dance break scene while wearing the legendary Vixen uniform.
AC also posted the same clip in her personal Instagram account and thanked everyone who helped her during the shoot. "It’s finally out! RIVERDALE on Netflix!!! So grateful for this amazing opportunity. @madelame was so talented, I was in awe the whole time! And of course, @vanessamorgan who is sooo pretty and professional despite her being pregnant!"
The fifth and latest season of Riverdale, which aired in January 2021, follows a time jump of seven years from the last season’s plotline. Toni Topaz (played by Vanessa Morgan) is now the new queen of the Vixen cheering squad after Cheryl Blossom (and the rest of the gang's) graduation from high school.
Catch AC's performance in the new episode of Riverdale!
