How She Came Across Teen Drama, Riverdale?

Asha Bromfield came across a part in CW's Riverdale during a very difficult time in her life. She was living in Ajax, outside of Toronto, with her parents, working as a waitress at a restaurant.

Then, a friend told her that she should rather go to Vancouver and explore acting. As a result, she "literally" took her waitressing tips and flew to Vancouver. She had told herself that she would stay there only for two weeks until she booked Riverdale on her second-last day and finally got the part.
