I got called back about an hour later and did the audition again, in front of Roberto [Aguirre-Sacasa], Sarah Schechter, and a couple of the other executives. LILI REINHART: In November 2015, I got the audition. I think it’s because it was such a responsibility to make sure it’s right.And then, they called me back for a screen test, a couple weeks later. You’ve gotta get the characters right, and get the ensemble right. It’s about everyone together, and the town of Riverdale.What's weird is it's a video call, from someone using Duo, Google's video chat app available today for i OS and Android.I probably know this person, because they'd need my number to make the call., the new school year begins as the town is coming to grips with the tragic but mysterious death of high schooler Jason Blossom. Throw in new student, Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), a curious Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) and Queen Bee Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch), who is always happy to stir up trouble, and secrets are bound to surface.

I was like, “Wait, I feel like I just took a huge step backwards. I had to go back to New York, and after a few days past, they still hadn’t found her.
And then, I went back and there were five Veronicas. They want to bring someone in that they feel can compete with you and that they feel is on the same level.” I was like, “Why?! So, we’re going to look for her and test her, and then, from there, we’ll decide.” I was so nervous.
