So far, Riverdale season four has proved a hit among its loyal fans. After starting on a sad note, dedicating its entire first episode In Memorium to actor Luke Perry who played Archie’s (KJ Apa) dad in the drama, it has since gained more momentum with more clues for the gang to solve. But who is this latest addition to the Netflix and The CW series cast?

Who is Darius in Riverdale?
Darius is the young caretaker looking after Cheryl Blossom’s (Madelaine Petsch) Nana Rose in the latest episode Rocket Man.

Girlfriend Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan) hired the nurse following a sudden outburst from Nana Rose.

His career with the Blossom family was short-lived though as the red-haired diva fired him on the spot.

She suspected he might have stumbled upon her brother Jason’s (Trevor Stines) body which she is hiding in Thistle House.

However, Darius was completely innocent as it actually moved because there was a live rat inside it.
Toni has now discovered Jason’s corpse and it is safe to say she is more than a little bit confused on what to do next. Cheryl moved the body into her home after she found it was being kept by cult group The Farm led by Edgar Evernever (Chad Michael Murray).

No one knew she was taking care and weirdly talking to Jason’s body up until that point.

Who is actor Austin Miklautsch?
Miklautsch is the young actor who plays Darius in episode three of Riverdale.

He only makes a brief appearance in the show before Petsch’s character kicks him out of the house.

Miklautsch is a fairly new actor and according to IMDB, has only so far featured in Riverdale and The Man in the High Castle as Weltkommando. It seems unlikely at this stage that his character Darius will be returning to the show any time soon.

Riverdale continues on Netflix UK every Thursday.
