Riverdale star Camila Mendes has us all reaching for the tissues thanks to an emotionally charged post to boyfriend Charles Melton.

While Mendes is known for playing Veronica Lodge on the CW’s teen drama, Melton portrays Reggie Mantle. Elsewhere, Melton has just taken his first leading role in The Sun Is Also a Star, which prompted Mendes’ public display of affection.

Mendes explained how Melton has excitedly told her about the role while they were still just friends. “He hadn’t even been cast yet. They hadn’t even started casting. All he told me was, ‘I’m going to play this role, I am Daniel bae,'” said Mendes.

“Aside from having the biggest heart out of anyone I know, his passion and tenacity are part of the reason I fell in love with him. Watching him throw his entire heart and soul into this story of love taught me a lot about the kind of person he is.”

i remember the day @melton told me about this project. we were still just friends then. he hadn’t even been cast yet. they hadn’t even started casting. all he told me was “i’m going to play this role, i am daniel bae.” aside from having the biggest heart out of anyone i know, his passion and tenacity are part of the reason i fell in love with him. watching him throw his entire heart and soul into this story of love taught me a lot about the kind of person he is. i’m probably sharing too much, but before we started dating he’d often get mad at me for trying to bring logic into love. he taught me that love doesn’t have an explanation, it either exists or it doesn’t. it was his vulnerability not only as an actor, but also as a man, that taught me that valuable message, one that is so relevant to this film. i’m so proud of you charles, and so grateful to have witnessed this beautiful journey of yours. can’t wait for the world to see what you’re capable of ♥️ happy premiere day!! #thesunisalsoastar

She gushed, “Aside from having the biggest heart out of anyone I know, his passion and tenacity are part of the reason I fell in love with him.

“I’m probably sharing too much, but before we started dating, he’d often get mad at me for trying to bring logic into love. He taught me that love doesn’t have an explanation, it either exists or it doesn’t.”

In The Sun Is Also a Star, Melton plays a young immigrant opposite Yara Shahid. The pair fall in love over the course of a New York day.

Back in October, Mendes and Melton confirmed they were a couple after starring together since 2017. The pair looked as stunning as ever on the red carpet as they promoted the movie.

The idea of The Sun Is Also a Star is all about love at first sight, so it sounds like Melton has taken a leaf out of his character’s book.

His romance with Mendes doesn’t end there though. Melton is a self-confessed romantic and reportedly writes plenty of his own Shakespeare-inspired letters to his beau. Awww, young love.
