‘Riverdale’ Star Lili Reinhart Is Returning To Canada To Film The Show, And She’s NOT Happy About It!
Even though the coronavirus is still around, productions on film and tv are starting to return, but they are looking a lot different than they did before. Temp checks, masks, no extras on set, and lots of other regulations.
‘Riverdale‘ star Lili Reinhart talked with Nylon recently, and she gave a surprisingly honest interview. She talked about how she’s scheduled to return to Canada to resume filming on ‘Riverdale’ but she’s not exactly looking forward to it.
Once she gets to Canada, she’ll be forced to quarantine inside her apartment/hotel for two weeks. She cannot leave that room. She can’t even take a walk.
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 visit you unless they quarantine for two weeks. It just feels f–ked.
And to make the situation even more complicated, when they stopped filming over five months ago, they were in the middle of shooting a prom episode.
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 good news is that during the five months off, she was able to reset and take care of her mental health.
But what a perfect opportunity to take control of what’s going on inside. I feel very grateful because, without this time, I would have just kept trucking along. This gave me a time to, for the first time in four years, step back and process what has happened in the past couple years, process my emotions and just process my s–t.
And she hasn’t been doing it all on her own. She’s been doing therapy virtually via WhatsApp. She likes to think of the brain as an attic that needs cleaning every few years.
Not a bad way to look at it.
Here’s to hoping she’s mentally prepared for the intense two week quarantine in Canada! By the way, we’ve heard the penalty for breaking the quarantine in Canada (for actors) is a $1 million fine.
So yeah, they’re not f**king around.
