TEEN VOGUE — Every week on Riverdale, we hope to get one step closer to finding out who murdered Jason Blossom. But before we get to the bottom of the small town’s biggest mystery, it seems we’re always thrown another twist or surprise. Plenty has happened so far during the suspenseful first season: we’ve watched Archie and his teacher Ms. Grundy fall into a very illegal relationship — only for her to eventually depart; witnessed Veronica fall into some family drama with her mother; and felt our hearts break for Jughead as he navigates school, friends, and a pretty terrible home life. There’s been plenty more happening in the supposedly quiet town of Riverdale, and we just simply can’t stop get enough of the CW show.

What’s also been great to see is just how much the cast totally loves hanging out with one another. KJ Apa and Cole Sprouse who play Archie and Jughead respectively are total bromance goals. There’s even speculation that Jughead and Betty are dating IRL. And they all have some pretty strong feelings about who actually killed Jason Blossom.

It’s always a little unclear exactly what will happen next on Riverdale, and we’re excited to see how the mystery gets wrapped up (and the possibility of zombies in the show’s second season). In the meantime, it looks like the show’s cast paid homage to another CW classic: Gossip Girl. Teen Vogue received some glamorous photos of the actors, giving their best Manhattanite eleganza. They’ve gone from Riverdale and straight to the Upper East Side. And most importantly, this most definitely makes Jughead the show’s Gossip Girl considering all his snooping and voiceovers, right?

LATINA — You would never be able to tell that Camila Mendes (no relation to Shawn Mendes) is a Hollywood newbie. The poised and brilliant Brazilian American beauty is starring on The CW’s new series, Riverdale, playing complex character Veronica Lodge — and her acting chops are superb.

Riverdale has quickly become one of our guilty (or perhaps not so guilty) pleasures, and Mendes has surely won over our hearts with her portrayal of Veronica and her backstory.

Though based on characters from the classic Archie Comics we all grew up knowing to love, the tone of Riverdale is completely different, much darker. The series centers on the small town of Riverdale as its people are reeling from the recent murder of the local high school’s golden boy Jason Blossom, which causes everything in, what appears to be their picture perfect world, to change. Riverdale follows all-American teen Archie Andrews (played by KJ Apa) and his dad Fred Andrews (played by Luke Perry) , Betty Cooper (played by Lili Reinhart), Veronica Lodge (played by Mendes) and her mother Hermoine (played by Marisol Nichols), Jughead Jones (played by Cole Sprouse), Cheryl Blossom (played by Madelaine Petsch), and leader of Josie and the Pussycats, Josie McCoy (played by Ashleigh Murray), as they each navigate through the nightmare and secrets that make Riverdale a quiet, sleepy town, filled with dangers in the shadows.

We spoke to Mendes all about Riverdale, playing the iconic character of Veronica, her upbringing, her gripe with Hollywood’s treatment of Latinos and lots more.

Get to know and love the Brasilera in our exclusive interview below:

This is your first role ever, which is amazing! How did you prepare for this moment?

It’s crazy, I feel honored! It’s this epic role that I would’ve never imagined would be my first. You always assume that you’re just going to have a gradual start, book your featured role in something, and then kind of work your way up from there. So to start with a role like this, it was incredible and very unexpected. It‘s one of those things that just happened so fast. I mean it didn’t happen fast, actually — the casting process took place over months and months but because it was so go, go, go. It was more like ‘ you have a call back here, call back there, flying to LA to do a network test,’ there was so much going on. You can’t think twice about it when you’re in the moment. Just keep going. Otherwise, you lose focus when you have to keep your eye on the prize.
