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.

'Riverdale's Newest Addition Might Be Out to Get Betty Cooper!

'Riverdale's Newest Addition Might Be Out to Get Betty Cooper!

There’s a new character headed to Riverdale and she might be out to get Betty!

Earlier this month, it was announced that Evelyn Evernever would be joining the cast of characters and now more details are being revealed about her.

Evelyn was originally featured in the Little Archie comics and in several issues of Betty & Veronica Spectacular. Evelyn was Archie’s first kiss in the comics and was revealed to be his kidnapper when he mysteriously goes missing.

“Evelyn is a big member of the Farm. She is going to be a student in Riverdale High. She is going to have some tension with Betty. And you definitely don’t know what her agenda is. As you’ll see, some bad things start happening and it always seems that Evelyn is kind of lurking in the background of them,” series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told Seventeen at New York Comic Con.

Now, according to a casting notice found by That Hashtag Show, we’re getting more details about what kind of actor will take on the role.

“[EVELYN EVERNEVER] Female, Late Teens – Early 20’s to play Late Teens, Open Ethnicity. Otherworldly, seemingly omnipresent, and a bit odd. She’s eager to befriend Betty, and is surprisingly insightful for her age, but may be hiding dark secrets about herself. (While not required, a possible direction for the role is a girl who is physically reminiscent of ‘Betty’.) MAJOR RECURRING GUEST STAR,” the casting call reads.

While we don’t know who will play Evelyn just yet, we’re sure we’ll find out more on this season of Riverdale!

Kiernan Shipka Almost Played Betty Cooper on 'Riverdale' Instead of Lili Reinhart

Kiernan Shipka Almost Played Betty Cooper on 'Riverdale' Instead of Lili Reinhart

It’s hard to imagine anyone except Lili Reinhart playing Riverdale‘s Betty Cooper, but it almost wasn’t so!

Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa originally seriously considered Kiernan Shipka for the role as well, EW reports.

Kiernan was iconic in Mad Men, and I had even thought about her, I was like, ‘Oh I wonder if she’d ever do Betty,’” he said.

“When [Sabrina] moved from CW to Netflix, our casting director David Rapaport said, ‘By the way this is something Kiernan might be interested in,’” Roberto added. “There was no script at the time, but from the second he said that, for me it was sort of like, ‘Okay she’s Sabrina. I’m writing this for Kiernan.’”

“She felt like the right actor at the right age at the right point in her career and someone who was up for the challenge, because it’s grueling,” he shared. “She’s in practically every scene. But for me, Sabrina had to stand up to the Dark Lord, the devil, and these very formidable opponents and someone like Kiernan has the gravitas and the assuredness to be able to do that. I’d say she was my first choice for sure. For sure.”

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres on Netflix on October 26.

Lili Reinhart & 'Riverdale' Showrunner Discuss That Final Scene of the Season 3 Premiere

Lili Reinhart & 'Riverdale' Showrunner Discuss That Final Scene of the Season 3 Premiere

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!

We pretty sure it wasn’t just us that was 100% confused over the final scene of Riverdale last night.

If you missed the premiere, look away now, if you watched – what the heck was that scene?!

We watched as Betty (Lili Reinhart) watched her mom Alice (Madchen Amick) and sister Polly (Tiera Skovbye) performing a ritual with the Farm, where Polly’s twins floated over a fire. The weird and strange ritual caused Betty to faint – but was that real or just her imagination?

“[When I read the script], I immediately texted [showrunner] Roberto [Aguirre-Sacasa] and was like, ‘Does this show have magic in it now? Is it supernatural now?’ and he said, ‘No, I promise you it’s not,’” Lili shared with TV Guide.

She adds, “I was immediately like, ‘OK, it was a hallucination. Maybe Betty is having a bad reaction to her Adderall and the high stress, or something really weird is going on with the Farm. I think it’s a mix of all of those things.”

Roberto added more about that final scene we watched, saying that “it means that either Betty is having a hallucination, or some very, very, very scary cult members have come to Riverdale, or it means both…”

“We wanted something that was really shocking and disturbing and disorienting. The reason I can’t tell you conclusively what it is, is because that’s the big mystery. I can tell you that it only kind of gets freakier from that moment on.”
