Veronica Lodge Will Step Up & Be A Serious Girlfriend For Archie on 'Riverdale'

Veronica Lodge Will Step Up & Be A Serious Girlfriend For Archie on 'Riverdale'

We’re already expecting Archie and Veronica’s relationship to be a bit friskier in Riverdale‘s upcoming second season.

Now, Camila Mendes is telling fans a bit more about their relationship and how it’s turning serious in her new feature with Teen Vogue.

“I imagine that Veronica, in her past, was not very much a relationship kind of girl,” she admits. “She had her flings, and the guys she would hook up with, but she never really committed to anything to play the role of a serious girlfriend.”

But that’s beginning to change with Archie for her.

“Considering what you see at the end of season one, and what that does to Archie, it traumatizes him. Veronica now has no choice but to step up to the plate, and be a serious girlfriend in order to help Archie get through his trauma,” Camila adds.

“I think Veronica’s nervous, but then that kind of transitions into fearlessness. I think she busted up the courage to be vulnerable, because there is a lot of strength and courage in vulnerability.”

Riverdale returns TOMORROW @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Camila Mendes Dishes About Betty & Veronica's Fight in 'Riverdale' Season 2

Camila Mendes Dishes About Betty & Veronica's Fight in 'Riverdale' Season 2

We’ve been hearing a lot about the rift that Betty and Veronica will be going through in Riverdale‘s upcoming second season.

Now, Camila Mendes is telling fans a bit more in her new feature with Teen Vogue.

First things first, it’s not about Archie. Or any guy.

“It’s just about Betty being in a compromising situation, and her having to hurt [Veronica] in order to protect her,” Camila explains. “It comes from a place of love, but it’s still heartbreaking, and they do eventually make up, as they always do and always will.”

She adds about why a lot of fans always think a fight between girls is all about a guy: “It’s the narrative that’s been told over and over again, especially by Archie comics.”

“I think maybe some people just feel like they want to see that play out, but that’s just not really our show,” Camila adds. “We’re not telling the story of Archie and Betty and Veronica’s love triangle. We’re telling a story of friendship and the loss of innocence.

Speaking with People Chica recently, Camila is already on the lookout for her next role and wouldn’t mind taking on a superhero role.

“I would love for my next project to be a well-written, character-driven indie. Something intimate, low budget, and completely different from the well-oiled machine of network television,” Camila shared.

She adds, “But I’d also love to play a superhero in a big feature – so honestly, anything goes!”

We’re game to seeing Camila as a superhero.

FYI: Camila was toting Away luggage for her trip.

Well, actually, he was acting out different things.

“I’m gonna be showing you how to put on blush, so here’s my product,” Camila is heard saying while Cole points at his lips. “I’m going first start with my lip — oh, under my eyes apparently. What am I doing? I’m crazy, oh my god.”

Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa & Camila Mendes Rock Jughead's Signature Beanie

Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa & Camila Mendes Rock Jughead's Signature Beanie

Jughead wouldn’t be Jughead without his crown beanie — but it turns out that the entire Riverdale cast can rock that thing.

Cole Sprouse snapped his cast mates in Jughead’s signature headgear on the set last night in Vancouver, Canada — and they all look so cool.

The beanie — a whoopee cap — actually has a really special meaning behind it with the series and the original comics. It was really popular with young people right around the time Jughead made his comic book debut in 1941.

Factory workers actually used to invert their felt fedoras and chop off the brims so their eyesight wouldn’t be restricted while working. When they got new hats, they’d pass their old hat down to their kids.

Check out Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa and Camila Mendes rocking the cap below:
