Jedidiah Goodacre - Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina (2018-2020)
Stream On Netflix
Jedidah Goodacre plays the recurring character PJ in The Imperfects but the 'Archieverse' fans would remember him as Dorian Gray in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Based on the antihero of Oscar Wilde's 1890 novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, Goodacre's version of Gray retains the narcissism and superiority over his good looks. He also hosts a gentleman's room for warlocks and his loyalties often shift between Sabrina and the other villainous characters. The supernatural comedy-drama series otherwise stars Kiernan Shipka as the titular witch who is caught up in between the worlds of humans and witches.
