Riverdale has managed to unite a small community with young fans of the series. The show is in its 5th season and continues to keep them going.
However, some do not know about the cast of the series. Starting with this secret around the role of Lili Reinhart, Betty.
If the actress did go through an audition to have the part, she was not supposed to have the part … Yep, she had it down in style during the auditions …
All in all, this information may seem surprising, because for fans, Betty is Lili. And no one else could take this role that suits him so well.
For the casting, Lili Reinhart had therefore sent a video filmed from her home. Video that did not convince the jury … And yet!

“I sent in a video from my home to audition,” Lili Reinhart recalls on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show. “They said ‘no’ to me. They weren’t interested, they didn’t want me. ”
