She’s an actress by day … and an undercover sex trafficking agent by night.
Marisol Nichols may be known for her role as Hermione Lodge on the hit CW series Riverdale , but when she wasn’t filming scenes for the YA series, she was assisting FBI agents. Yes, we’re serious.
In an April interview with Marie Claire , Marisol revealed that she has worked for the past five years with law enforcement to help catch child predators, explaining that she has volunteered as a participant in a half dozen child-sex stings. She told the outlet that she works as the hook for the operation, playing both the victim and a parent who is looking to sell their child.
According to Deadline , Marisol’s second career will be the basis for a new television series. The outlet reported that Sony Pictures Television has opted for the rights and is currently in the early stages of development. While many applaud Marisol for her work to help fight against child sex trafficking, others have criticized the actress because she is a member of the Church of Scientology.
