OFFICE MAGAZINE — It was a moment that thrust us into a golden age of teenage soap operas—the fateful driveway cigarette transfer between Marissa Cooper and Ryan Atwood. For those among us who grew up on an IV drip of The OC’s sunny, beachfront drama and, subsequently, the Fifth Avenue private school cattiness of Gossip Girl, the days of quality teen dramas seem to have been replaced by student loans and unwanted marriage invitations.

For recent NYU acting alum Camila Mendes though, these cultural touchstones haven’t been relegated to the nostalgia bin alongside DVDs and iPod Nanos—they’ve served as a source of inspiration for her first role ever, a starring turn on the hit Archie Comics reboot Riverdale.

Deep in the woods and just along a river bend lies a mysterious town that has become the epicenter of TV’s next great teenage drama. Set against decades of material from the iconic comics, Riverdale keeps up the tradition of packing a high school with runway-ready characters and painfully self-aware pop culture references, but adds in a twist of Twin Peaks murder mystery.

At the heart of it all is Mendes’ character Veronica. She’s the new girl in town who traded in Upper West Side luxury for cherry-topped milkshakes at Pop Luke’s Diner in Riverdale after her father is sent to jail for embezzlement and fraud. It’s definitely a “Blair Waldorf moves to the backwoods and finds her morality” moment, and we’re so here for it.

As we gear up for the final few episodes of Riverdale’s first season and second guess who we think actually killed Jason Blossom, we caught up with Mendes to find out why comparing her to Blair Waldorf doesn’t make sense, how The OC predicted her role on Riverdale, the allure of a perfect vegetable platter, and more.

I read that you’re a fan of Gossip Girl and The OC?

I loved The OC! That was my show. I watched the entire series seven times through.

WATCH! MAGAZINE — In the new Archie comics-inspired series, Riverdale, actress Camila Mendes plays Veronica Lodge, a high school sophomore who moves to Riverdale from New York City. Mendes knows what it’s like to have to adjust to a new place; she grew up in Miami and recently relocated to Vancouver, British Columbia, to film the show. “The vibes are different,” she says. “Vancouver is more laid-back, pretty much what you would expect from a West Coast city. Miami is definitely livelier—the nightlife, the people, everything. It’s basically a little slice of Latin America.” Sound like a great place to warm up after a long winter? Watch! asked Mendes to share where she goes first when she visits her hot hometown.

EAT LIKE A FOODIE
I love Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill in midtown for brunch. It’s my go-to spot whenever I have friends visiting. It has a really cool atmosphere, but it’s never pretentious like some places in Miami. If you go there, you have to order the bacon-wrapped dates. I crave them constantly. For lunch, I love SushiSamba, a Brazilian-Japanese fusion restaurant on Lincoln Road. I’m Brazilian, and I love sushi, so the combination is a culinary dream come true for me. Or try a Cuban sandwich and a cafecito at a typical Cuban restaurant in Little Havana. For dinner, I highly recommend Bâoli. Make sure you ask for a courtyard table. Try the wagyu beef sliders, and the hamachi sashimi tacos.

HIT THE TOWN
My favorite bar in Miami is Lagniappe, a wine and cheese bar with live music and a really cozy outdoor area where they serve BBQ. That’s where you’ll find all the hipsters. I also love Bodega. It’s a taco bar that doubles as a speakeasy—just walk through the bathroom door and past the urinals. Great music, fun crowd and a pool table. And if you experience a case of the “drunchies,” you can always grab a delicious taco on your way out.
