Cole Sprouse’s Face Was Once Printed on a Filipino Book

Cole Sprouse arrived in Manila last night and fans of the Riverdale star couldn’t help but post about their excitement. These include people who are going to his meet and greet this weekend, and also those who wish they can go.

It’s obviously clear how much people have loved Cole since his Disney Channel days to becoming the mysterious Jughead. If you’re preparing yourself to see and possibly meet the actor in the next few days, we thought we’d give you some fun facts about him. Aside, of course, from the fact that he’s Dylan Sprouse’s twin brother.

Have you seen his photography projects?

In case you don’t know yet, Cole is also a photographer. His works have been featured on major publications like The Sunday Times and L’Uomo Vogue, and he casually takes gorgeous photos of girlfriend Lili Reinhart that look like they’re straight out of a fashion editorial.

Cole also has another account called @camera_duels, which is dedicated to “the people out there who secretly take photos of me, and how I take photos of them first.” The shots, which are mostly blurry and candid, are pretty funny.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, he said that he’s willing to give up acting to pursue photography. “I don’t find the passion in acting that I find in photography, and, truthfully, I’ve been dabbling with the notion that if and when photography takes a more prevalent role in my life, I will likely never return to acting.”

A college graduate

Both Cole and Dylan took a break from acting after their Zack & Cody stint and got their college degree at New York University. But Cole didn’t choose a major that’s close to acting. Instead he took up archaeology in college. “We really wanted to step out and fade away from the industry and, you know, we were pleasantly surprised at how often people reached out wondering what we were doing and where we were,” Cole told Teen Vogue.

That’s not all, Cole and Dylan also received each other’s diplomas during their graduation. Because, duh, that’s what you do when you have an identical twin.

His first crush

Screengrab from Friends

When Cole was younger, he would often switch roles with Dylan like in Big Daddy and Grace Under Fire. But Cole’s first solo role was Ross’ son in Friends. In fact, he told New York Post that he had a hard time working with Jennifer Aniston (who played Rachel Green) because he was “infatuated” with her. “I’d get all bubbly and forget my lines and completely blank…It was so difficult,” he said. So adorable!

Someone found his face on a Filipino book

Do you know the Precious Hearts Romances books that are usually sold in bookstores and convenience stores? Yeah, Cole’s face was featured on one of them without his permission and he wasn’t too happy about it.

He also tweeted the exact photo that was used for the cover. [Insert monkey covering mouth emoji]

Real-life Disney character

It’s been a while since Cole did anything Disney-related. But in case he decides to get back into it, he can play Milo Thatch in a live-action adaptation of Atlantis. I mean, just look at his Halloween 2015 costume.
