It’s very classy and I have it above my bathroom in my guest room at the moment.” Mendes is also hoping to expand her collection. “…I plan on stealing a different artwork that’s of Veronica running through lions” she said. “Once the show is over, I’m going to ask them to give me that. I’d also like that in the bathroom. I would like people to look up at me and pee.

Mendes has played Veronica in Riverdale since the show’s premiere in January 2017 which is just over six years ago. In an interview with InStyle, Mendes confessed that she has a feeling of ambivalence about the show’s end. “It’s such a bittersweet feeling,” she said. It’s the last day 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 for the majority of my 20s. Yet, I’m eager for the next chapter.”
