Camila Mendes Opens Up About Having Panic Attacks At The Start of 'Riverdale' Season 5

Camila Mendes Opens Up About Having Panic Attacks At The Start of 'Riverdale' Season 5

Camila Mendes dons a purple dress on the cover of Health magazine’s April 2021 issue.

The 26-year-old Riverdale actress was photographed by Nino Muñoz for the cover shoot.

In the mag, Camila opens up about landing Riverdale right out of college, having panic attacks at the beginning of filming season five and more.

On taking care of her mental health: “When we first started shooting season 5, I started having panic attacks, which was strange for me. I think it was because I was in Vancouver and borders were closed—no one could visit us. You start to miss your home and your life, and you don’t have your friends or community with you. I want to say, I am so grateful to be working and would never want this to come off that I am not. Taking baths helped with the panic attacks. I also learned in those moments to put down my phone and take a break from technology and get in the tub with some music on and a book. I never did that before the pandemic, and now I love that I’ve learned to do that for myself.”

On landing Riverdale right out of college: “It’s a dream—I never expected as an actress studying theater at NYU that my first gig would be so transformative. Then, there’s the other side of it. When you have such a massive fan base, there are haters that come along with it. But that has actually been a good learning experience, too. It forces you to accept and get comfortable with the fact that not everyone is going to like you—and that’s OK. That’s a very valuable lesson to have learned early in my career.”

On working in Hollywood as a Latina woman: “When I started and was auditioning a lot, it felt like either there were roles for white girls or roles for Spanish-speaking Latina women. I am born and bred Latina. I grew up in the United States and am Brazilian. I speak Portuguese. In Hollywood, at the time, it didn’t feel like there were roles for people with backgrounds like mine. But now, I do think people are starting to understand that there are all different kinds of Latina women—and beyond that, all different types of people with different backgrounds and experiences. There isn’t just one American experience or one Latina experience.”

On slowing down due to quarantine: “In my day-to-day life, I’m a social butterfly. I love my friends and normally have to force myself to be alone. But in quarantine, I’ve learned how much I actually like spending time with myself. It’s been nice to realize that, and I think it’s something we all need sometimes. When this all started, I was in a place in my life that was go, go, go. I never imagined I’d have time to just sit and be by myself. It has really made me reevaluate priorities.”

KJ Apa Steps Out After Opening Up About The Restrictions of Playing Archie Andrews

KJ Apa Steps Out After Opening Up About The Restrictions of Playing Archie Andrews

KJ Apa wears a cool pair of sunglasses while going out on Sunday (February 28) in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The 23-year-old actor also wore the same jacket that his co-star and friend Drew Ray Tanner wore the day before in an Instagram post.

KJ recently posed for photos for a new feature with Interview magazine, where he was interviewed by Demi Moore, and he opened up about being on Riverdale and how restricting it feels.

“I felt so free coming from a show where I feel like I’m in jail a lot of the time,” KJ said about going from Riverdale to Songbird. “There are so many restrictions on what I can and can’t do. With this character, it was like, ‘Wow, this is what it’s like to really express myself in a natural way.’ I wasn’t covered in makeup or hair products. I had long hair and a beard. I just felt free.”

“There’s been so much pressure in playing Archie. I’m so grateful for the show and its success, but at the same time, there’s a lot of baggage that comes with that success,” KJ continued. “I feel like the only people I can talk to about my issues are my costars, the people who can really relate to me. Cole [Sprouse] is an amazing person to have on set, because he’s been doing this his whole life.”

He also opened up about being judged on portraying a comic book character and people not separating them in real life, compared to their character.

“I try and look at it from a fan’s perspective to understand the way they think. But there are times when I’m like, ‘Wow, they really have no idea that we are actual people. They can’t separate us from our characters,’” he added. “You don’t have that in other professions. You don’t dissect the life of a builder and start judging the decisions he makes in his life with his wife and kids. As an actor, I will be judged on everything: my political opinions, my opinions on drugs, my opinions on the people I want to be with. Everything. It’s something I’ve had to come to terms with.”

Luke Perry Made a Surprise Appearance on Riverdale's Graduation Episode

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT! This post contains spoilers from the latest episode of Riverdale!

Riverdale‘s final high school episode, aka graduation, aired last night and kicked off with a very emotional moment!

Within the first ten minutes of the episode, the late Luke Perry came on the screen in a surprise posthumous appearance as Fred Andrews.

The actor appeared in a dream that Archie (KJ Apa) was having about his parents (Perry and Molly Ringwald) taking pictures on graduation day.

“I can’t believe we’re here. Archie, you’re graduating. I didn’t think I’d live to see this day,” Luke says.

The footage is actually from the season two premiere, “A Kiss Before Dying,” after Fred was shot by the Black Hood.

Also in the episode, we saw all of the couples break up and everyone going their separate ways. It was also the last appearance from Skeet Ulrich and his character FP Jones.

Tonight’s the night – the Riverdale gang is graduating!

The all new episode is the final one before the series jumps forward seven years. This ep was originally meant to be the season six finale.

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who wrote the episode, revealed that not all of the characters made to the episode.

“Today’s a big day in #Riverdale. As excited/nervous as I was for my own high school graduation waaaay too many years ago. Somehow, this one means more. Not all of our characters survived to make it to graduation. Not all of the actors we wanted to come back were able to for various reasons (including Covid). But so grateful to everyone in this picture. And to many more who aren’t in the picture, but we’ll be seeing soon. Next stop: Seven years in the future…🚀🎢📸👀💥☠️,” he shared on Instagram, where he’s been sharing tidbits.

“All the secrets will come out; all the tears will flow,” Roberto shared the day before.

“The gang finally graduates, tonight. 🎓 a very sentimental, emotional episode for everyone who has been on this Riverdale journey with us since day 1,” Lili Reinhart shared on her social media.

“Everything changes tonight. @thecwriverdale,” KJ Apa added.

If you missed the good news, it was just announced that Riverdale has already been picked up for another season, along with many other CW shows!
