Camila Stuns in Her New Interview for Schön! Magazine.
Brunette beauty, Camila Mendes, plays reformed bad girl, Veronica Lodge, on The CW’s hit series based on Archie Comics, Riverdale. She stuns for Schön! Magazine‘s upcoming April issue, where she’s featured. In an interview with the mag, Camila dishes on her thrown into the spotlight, portraying Veronica, Riverdale and much more. Check out a sneak peek of the interview with Camila below!
Jet-propelled into the spotlight with her breakthrough role as the stalwart Veronica Lodge on Riverdale, Camila Mendes is making a space for herself in the entertainment world.
If you’d have told Camila Mendes just three years ago that she’d be starring in one of the most talked-about series on primetime TV, she wouldn’t have believed you. The Brazilian-American starlet hadn’t even graduated from the NYU’s prestigious Tisch School of the Arts before landing her decisive (and debut) role as the silver-tongued Veronica Lodge. Riverdale is currently in its sophomore season, but all the odds point to Mendes being in it for the long run.
…Her undeniable talent and charisma have garnered a social media following of over six million and her initial reluctance to “step into that spotlight as a role model” has disappeared: she has partnered with non-profits like Project HEAL to shed light on eating disorders. “As I’m establishing my independence and growing as a person, I want to use my voice, but I needed to find what that voice was first,” she explains. “I don’t want to speak on anything that I don’t feel completely knowledgeable about.”
RIVERDALE airs WEDNESDAYS at 8|7c. on The CW
