Lili Reinhart & Camila Mendes Open Up About the Future of 'Riverdale'

Lili Reinhart and Camila Mendes get fierce in a photo from their spread in Cosmopolitan‘s February issue, on newsstands January 9th.

The 21-year-old and 23-year-old Riverdale co-stars opened up about life before Riverdale and what’s next on the show. Check it:

Camila on her character Veronica’s future: “I want to see [Veronica] challenged – I want to see her at her breaking point…I love strong characters and they’re fun to play, but I think we’ve seen a lot of strong Veronica. It would be interesting to see her in a different light. I want to see her weak and defeated. I want to see her fail.”

Lili on what she wants to see from Betty: “I want to see [Betty] have a good time. Maybe not having phone calls on the reg with a serial killer, you know? I want her to let her hair down – and not just as a reaction to being depressed and stressed out. Betty didn’t even do [Riverdale’s fictional party drug] Jingle Jangle…I also want to see her explore her sexuality. She never gets to – she’s always stressed! Poor girl.”

Camila on being true to herself: “If I could go back to before I started Riverdale, I would tell myself to speak up when I felt like something wasn’t right. To use my voice and know that it’s worth hearing. I think what it really comes down to is giving fewer f**ks. It’s easy to think you have to fit some kind of mold. The darling, the bad b**ch, the cool girl. But there’s no way to mess up being yourself.”
