If you’ve ever heard of the CW television hit series Riverdale, then you’ve must have caught a glimpse of this young actress. She’s best known for her portrayal of everyone’s favorite queen bee, Veronica Lodge. Are you curious to find out what the actress has been doing before and after landing this role? Here you can find out all about her life, more acting jobs, and income.
Camila Carraro Mendes was born on June 29, 1994, in Charlottesville, Virginia. Her parents, Gisele and Victor, were of Brazilian heritage. She moved a lot during her childhood but spent most of her time in Florida. There, she studied at American Heritage School. Later on, in 2016, she graduated from the New York Tisch School of the Arts, just like one half of the ex Disney duo, Cole Spouse, who also stars in Riverdale.

One of her first jobs was a commercial for IKEA.
Almost right after she finished school, she was cast as Veronica Cecilia Lodge, an “intelligent, confident, silver-tongued high school sophomore who moves to Riverdale to reinvent herself after a scandal involving her father”. The show first made the screens in 2017, gaining almost instant success and rocketing young Mendes into the stars.
The show is a modern yet a bit dark take on the Archie Comics, which also stars KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Cole Spouse, Madelaine Petsch and recently passed Luke Perry.
Her first role in the movie industry was Morgan in “The New Romantic”, which came out in 2018. In this year’s movie “The Perfect Date” the actress played Shelby Pace.
Last year she appeared in two music videos; “Give a Little” by Maggie Rogers, and “Side Effects” by The Chainsmokers and Emily Warren.
Her performance as Veronica Lodge won her a 2017 Teen Choice Award for Choice Scene Stealer and nominated her in a few other categories.
Camila Mendes’ Instagram profile has over 21 million followers. Her Twitter account has 2.3 million followers.
Her character may have toyed around with his character’s heart a bit, but the off-screen case is nowhere near that toxic. Camila Mendes and her co-star Charles Melton, who plays Reggie on Riverdale, have been going strong for around a year and a half now.
The couple started dating on August 23, 2018. They have blessed us with an adorable 1-year anniversary photo of them kissing on a boat. Of course, during the year of their relationship, the two have shared many “to die for” red carpet moments. Also, Camila constantly praises Charles for his hard work and dedication in the acting business during her interviews, as she is the guest of talk shows often.
The actress is ready to clap back to haters of the relationship, so beware of the comments you post on the two.
Camila Mendes Net Worth 2023
As Riverdale, her first acting job has made her insanely famous in such a short period of time, the $3 million of her net worth in 2023 is quite an impressive sum. Both KJ Apa and Lili Reinhart have almost the same net worth as Mendes, but Cole Spouse has $9 million, due to his Disney days. After all, he’s been in the public’s eye for much longer than the trio.
