Katherine Langford ALMOST Starred in ‘Riverdale’ As THIS Lead Character


More Celebrity News ►►

Casting the leads of ‘Riverdale’ has been described as a long and challenging process by the producers and casting directors of the show, as they saw HUNDREDS of actors and actresses for each of the roles. Obviously all that work paid off eventually, because the cast is pure perfection, and the show is a massive success.

But if you’ve been wondering who almost made the cut during that crazy audition process, then Camila Mendes is here to rock your world.

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Camila shared that ‘13 Reasons Why’ star Katherine Langford auditioned for the role of Betty.

Camila explained that she got to know Katherine a little bit while she was auditioning for Veronica and Katherine was auditioning for Betty, but that the two never got to do a chemistry read together. She said QUOTE, “I remember when I met her, too — I never saw her act, but some people just have a personality that’s so genuine that I’m like, ‘I feel like you’re a really good actor.’ They have a presence. I had that feeling with her…It’s just so funny to think about that time in my life. I would have never thought in that moment that I would be here, and that she would be where she is. It’s crazy!”

Camila also revealed that she and Katherine went out for a post-audition lunch together. She recalled to Entertainment Weekly QUOTE, “I remember we went out and we got falafel with a guy who was auditioning for Archie.” To our disappointment Camila did NOT say who the guy auditioning for Archie was, but at this point he’s probably the lead of his own show, too.

As for Katherine, don’t feel too bad for her not getting the part, because if she HAD been cast on Riverdale, she wouldn’t have been able to land the lead of ‘13 Reasons Why’. Now if THAT isn’t evidence that everything happens for a reason, I don’t know what is!

Alright guys now I wanna hear your thoughts — are you surprised that Katherine was considered for the role of Betty, or do you totally see it? And do you think Lili would’ve made a great Hannah Baker if their roles WERE reversed? Sound off with all your opinions in the comments!

  1. Lili was made for the role of Betty Cooper. I’m happy that everyone was cast in the roles that they did. It’s cool how Katherine and the original actor for Reggie both ended up on 13RW.

  2. Lili fits Betty sooooo much better. Katherine is like… “ Hey. It’s Hannah. Hannah Baker.” And Lili is all like, “Jughead Jones, I love you.” SOOOOO…..
