Riverdale Star Camila Mendes has revealed the odd prop she keeps at home, as the drama is based on Archie Comics, and gears up for its final season.
As Riverdale is getting ready to premiere the show’s seventh and final season on The CW, Veronica Lodge actor Camila Mendes has shared an unusual prop from the show created by Archie Comics that currently resides in her home.
“One of the props people gave me a gift,” Mendes said during an interview with InStyle. Hiram Lodge is a picture of Veronica sitting cross-legged with her hands on her knees. It’s very regal and I have it above my bathroom in my guest room at the moment.” Mendes is also looking to increase her collection. “…I plan on taking a different painting of Veronica running through lions” she said. “Once the show’s finished I’ll ask for that. That’s what I’d like to see when I go to the bathroom. I want people to gaze up at me and pee.

Mendes has starred as Veronica on Riverdale since the premiere of the show in January which was just six years ago. Mendes expressed her feelings of ambivalence over the show’s ending with InStyle. She said, “It’s such an awful feeling.” It’s the end of an era and it’s going to be a bit strange to not have the show as a pillar of my life. I have had the show almost in my entire 20s. Yet, I’m eager for the next chapter.”
