Riverdale has its Veronica. Deadline reports Camila Mendes has been cast in the role for The CW’s Archie Comics pilot.
The series comes from producer Greg Berlanti and writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
Mendes will play Veronica Lodge, “a silver-tongued high school sophomore who returns to Riverdale from New York, eager to reinvent herself after a scandal involving her father.” Mendes will star opposite KJ Apa as Archie, Ashleigh Murray as Josie, and Luke Perry as Archie’s father, Fred Andrews.
Riverdale is being envisioned as a “subversive” take on the classic comic book characters.
