Cole Sprouse may currently be heading to a whole new level of fame thanks to Riverdale, but it’s another passion that helped him turn his life around.

"I was sad and in a dark place, and I turned to a hobby to sort of take me out of that. And I found photography," he told YouTuber Duan Mackenzie during a refreshing chat.
He added: “I’ve been doing photography for a while, but I had really used it as an outlet, as a way to create and feel better, and it took off."
Though this isn’t the first time Cole has chatted about his mental health, as he previously explained back in January 2016 that a hobby is the best help you can get.
He wrote on Instagram: "It heals, you know, a hobby. There's no Band-Aid like a hobby. I've been destructive, I know that now. I can see that I'm in a desert, and I've been thinking about that oasis when I should've been trying to get out."
But it’s not like he’s just out and about taking pictures of sunsets or butterflies, instead having already photographed the likes of Kendall Jenner and Sam Smith for seriously impressive publications such as Vogue. VOGUE.
So he’s a super talented actor, a really quite nice human in IRL AND has an artistic eye? Ugh, he’s the worst (the best).
