For some stars, the series Riverdale is a stepping stone to a great acting career. Lili Reinhart (25), for example, already proved in Hustlers and Our Lost Hearts that she can play more than the role of "Betty Cooper".

Her co-star Ashleigh Murray (34) already showed her talent as "Josie" in Riverdale and acted in the same role in the series Katy Keene. Now the 34-year-old is part of a new series.
