The Diary Of A CEO with Steven Bartlett

E229: Cole Sprouse: My Narcissistic Mum Sacrificed My Childhood For Fame!

Cole Sprouse is an actor and photographer who has been lighting up our screens and bringing joy to our lives for now twenty years. The star of 'Riverdale', 'The Suite Life' and many more beloved TV shows and films, he's been possessed with the spirit of creativity since before he was out of his cradle.

But as he reveals today, he didn't go into the entertainment industry by choice. He was effectively forced to perform by his mother, with whom he has a complicated, and currently estranged, relationship. To become comfortable inhabiting people in his acting roles, he first had to become comfortable with himself. It hasn't been an easy journey.

The new and final season of Riverdale is out later this year, and his photography is available for purchase, or just appreciation at colesprousephotography.com.
