Camila Mendes Is Veronica In “Riverdale”

Newcomer Camila Mendes has scored the key role of Veronica Lodge in The CW’s “Riverdale” pilot based on the “Archie” comics.

A contemporary and subversive take on the material, the new series has Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Mendes) and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small-town life – the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade.

In this take Veronica Lodge is a silver-tongued high school sophomore who returns to Riverdale from New York and aims to reinvent herself after a scandal involving her father.

Ashleigh Murray, Cole Sprouse, Madelaine Petsch and Luke Perry also star.
