The ‘Riverdale‘ star Lili Reinhart opened up about her career, mental health, and pandemic & lockdown period in a recent interview with Nylon.
During the interview, the 22-year-old actress, representing ‘Betty Cooper’ on teen drama series, stated that she was called back to set to film, and added it was hard because she was not able to return home. She said:
“I genuinely feel like a prisoner, going back to work, because I cannot leave Canada. That doesn’t feel good. You can’t go home for Thanksgiving, can’t visit your family. No one can come to visit you unless they quarantine for two weeks. It just feels f**ked.”
As known the production of the show was suspended in March due to the pandemic after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. The actress continued regarding going back to work and coronavirus restrictions:
“You can’t go home for Thanksgiving, can’t visit your family. No one can come to visit you unless they quarantine for two weeks. It just feels f*****. I’m very lucky, but it’s like, I need to keep going. I need to keep going… We stopped during the prom episode, so I have to fit back in that prom dress. Five months later, we’re all going to be tan, maybe a little bit thicker. I certainly am.”
The ‘Hustlers’ star also stated that she felt very lost, sad, and hopeless at the beginning of the pandemic because of personal things that were happening in her life:
“Instead of distracting myself, f****** random people and doing drugs and drinking my problems away. I chose the harder route, which was to not distract myself. I was like, I’m not doing that. I’m going to go through the next however many months of s***, pure s***, awful, crying every day, but the necessary work.”
