Camila Mendes Says Veronica Lodge Might Be Playing 'Dirty A Little More' on 'Riverdale'

Camila Mendes Says Veronica Lodge Might Be Playing 'Dirty A Little More' on 'Riverdale'

We’re only one episode into Riverdale‘s third season and we are 100% hooked on the new theme.

Camila Mendes chatted with TeenVogue about what’s ahead on the season, and specicially, for Veronica Lodge.

“She’s such a leader. She’s fearless. She goes to great lengths to protect the people she loves, especially Archie,” Camila says. “I think her obsession with control gets the best of her. I think [this season] she realizes she can’t control everything and some things are just going to happen.”

While she “can’t really go in too much about that story because it’s a spoiler”, Camila does say that Veronica is “willing to play dirty a little more.”

Speaking of playing dirty, Camila also opened up about how Veronica’s relationship with her on-screen parents.

“Both relationships between Veronica and her mom and between Veronica and Hiram are heartbreaking…I think there’s always such a duality happening in both relationships, and in season three, we’re going to be tapping into that duality a little more.”

Riverdale airs Wednesdays on The CW.

Camila Mendes Reveals Why She's So Open

Camila Mendes totally shines on the cover of Shape‘s November 2018 issue!

The 24-year-old Riverdale actress spoke about her past eating disorder, role models, and more in the mag! Check out what she shared…

On Rihanna being a role model for her: “This body positivity movement we’re having right now is so amazing, and it’s helping me so much. I’m seeing all these people who I look up to, like Rihanna, open up about their weight fluctuations and loving themselves the way they are. That makes me love myself more too.”

On her past struggles with bulimia: “I’ve struggled with bulimia. It happened a little bit in high school and again when I was in college. Then it came back when I started working in this industry with fittings all the time and watching myself on camera….I had such an emotional relationship with food and anxiety about everything I put into my body. I was so scared of carbs that I wouldn’t let myself eat bread or rice ever. I’d go a week without eating them, then I would binge on them, and that would make me want to purge. If I ate a sweet, I would be like, Oh my God, I’m not going to eat for five hours now. I was always punishing myself. I was even anxious about healthy food: Did I eat too much of the avocado? Did I have too many fats for one day? I was consumed with the details of what I was eating, and I always felt as if I was doing something wrong.”

On why she’s so open: “I realized that I have this platform, and young women and men who look up to me, and there is a tremendous power to do something positive with it.”

'Riverdale' Showrunner Teases Veronica & Archie Are Still Crazy About Each Other in Season 3

'Riverdale' Showrunner Teases Veronica & Archie Are Still Crazy About Each Other in Season 3

Varchie isn’t going down without a fight in the upcoming season of Riverdale – and we are here for that!

As one of our fave TV couples, we’d die if Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Archie (KJ Apa) ever split.

Thankfully, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told ET how that wasn’t going to happen anytime soon.

“Veronica is the type of character who says what she believes and says what’s on her mind. She says it, usually, emphatically and she believes that,” he explained of the character, adding, “She fights for that and for them really, really passionately.”

“I thought that with all the problems that we were going to be throwing at her and Archie, I thought that Varchie might be sacrificed early in the season,” he confessed, “but their passion has proved very resilient.”

Roberto adds that fans shouldn’t be worried about Varchie at all: “They are fighting to stay together and if the ship does goes down, they will go down fighting because these two are crazy about each other and they just won’t let go of each other.”

Riverdale returns NEXT Wednesday, October 10th on the CW.
