Lili Reinhart is playing the sweet and innocent Betty Cooper on the new CW series Riverdale. In the interview below we get a good idea of who Betty is at the start of the series, how she's a bit uncomfortable in her own skin and dealing with a lot of pressure. She's looking at her long time friend Archie Andrews (K J Apa) in a different way and it makes her nervous. Reinhart also talks about the relationship with the new-in-town Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) that starts off a genuine friendship and her adversarial relationship with Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch). I have a feeling this is going to be a very rough year for Betty.

Riverdale debuts January 26th.
