20 Times Veronica Lodge Of “Riverdale” Got Us Pumped For Latina Representation On Screen

The best Veronica Lodge moments in the hit show Riverdale are so plentiful, it’s a struggle to narrow them down to just a few key moments. For those of you who have been hiding under a rock, Veronica Lodge is the fierce American-Latina character who practically runs the town of Riverdale in the popular CW show. Although Veronica’s character was written as white in the original 1941-era Archie comics, the CW decided to make her Latina when they brought the series to life. Which, as we know, is a smart move.

Veronica Lodge is played by the beautiful, talented, and hilarious Camila Mendes, an American actress of Brazilian descent who has been vocal about her love of how Riverdale portrays the Lodge family’s relationship to their Latinx roots.

In celebration of Veronica Lodge and her unapologetic Latina-ness, here is a rundown of the best Veronica Lodge moments in the soapy teen series.
