If you love the Archie comics, then you’re probably (not so) patiently awaiting the premiere of Riverdale on the CW.
The series is definitely a darker take on the comic books, but we can’t wait to see how the characters come to life. One of our faves, the fantastic Lili Reinhart, will be playing Betty Cooper and we got the chance to catch up with her this week.
She told us all about her awesome pets back home, crazy talent and more below!
Full Name: Lili Pauline Reinhart
Hometown: Cleveland, Ohio
Birthday: Sept. 13
Zodiac Sign: Virgo
1. She has two dogs that live with her family in North Carolina. “Delilah is my baby,” Lili tells Sweety High. “She’s a golden retriever, and we call her ‘Big D.’ Then there’s little Sunny. She’s a Yorkie-Bichon mix and enjoys laying in my bed until one p.m.” This adorable holiday shot of the three was just enough to send us over the edge.
2. She recently started a crystal collection. “My favorite piece is my aquamarine bracelet,” she says. “It emits a calming energy and promotes an even temper, which I need when I’m driving in L.A.” No argument there, road rage in the City of Angels is no joke!

So what are your feelings about these characters?
Lili Reinhart: I guess we’ll start off by saying that our Archie is a lot less misogynistic than the comics. There isn’t a constant rivalry between the two girls, especially over the guy. They have more to their lives than Archie.
Camila Mendes: That’s the thing, there’s more going on in their individual lives than just the obsession with Archie and who he’s interested in that week. Their friendship in the ‘40s is obviously going to be different from their friendship now. There’s more kindess between them, but that’s not to say that there isn’t going to be rivalry as well.
Reinhart: It’s been seventy-five years and things have changed. The world has evolved. We’re putting the more modern version of Archie and Betty and Veronica into this world.
