We were joined on the Popternative show by Karl Walcott who plays Clay Walker in the final season of The CW’s Riverdale. Season 7 premiered in March with a large time jump after the town managed to survive Bailey’s comet, but it brought the main characters back to 1955, where we meet Karl’s character, Clay, who is also in the original Archie Comics.
Clay is an artistic, sensitive, well-read, and well-traveled teenager from a loving family and a champion for social justice. He is also very open-minded in both his art and sexuality, and soon catches the eye of Kevin Keller (played by Casey Cott).
In our interview, Karl tells us about his audition process, being part of the Riverdale universe, what it was like joining a series in its final season, and more. Watch the interview below.
A new episode of Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW until the series finale on August 23.
