Riverdale’s new ad­di­tion, plus B*witched spills on Aussie tour

CAN ARCHIE AND JUG­HEAD RE­SIST TEMP­TA­TION?

OK! (Australia) - - Contents -

Your ev­ery Twit­ter wish is Net­flix’s com­mand, Ri­ley Keough! Back in March, the 29-year-old told her 17,000 fol­low­ers, ‘I just want to be cast in Riverdale’ – and now, it’s been con­firmed that she will play mys­tery woman Lau­rie Lake on sea­son three of the teen drama.

De­scribed as an ‘all-amer­i­can farm girl’, Lau­rie helps Archie An­drews and Jug­head Jones af­ter they ‘wan­der onto her prop­erty in seek of shel­ter’. Then, af­ter what’s been de­scribed as ‘flir­ta­tious in­ter­ac­tion’ between Lau­rie and both the boys, – look out Veron­ica Lodge and Betty Cooper – the en­counter turns into ‘more dan­ger than they could have imag­ined.’

Fans be­lieve Ri­ley’s char­ac­ter is con­nected to ‘The Farm’, a cult that the third sea­son will cen­tre around. Showrun­ner Roberto Aguir­reSa­casa ex­plains, ‘We’re go­ing to meet the farm’s leader Edgar Evern­ever. But equally im­por­tant, we’re go­ing to meet his daugh­ter Eve­lyn Evern­ever, who’s an Archie char­ac­ter that we’re sort of rein­vent­ing for this sto­ry­line,’ he says of the comic book-to-tv adap­ta­tion.

Now fans are won­der­ing whether The Farm is the place Betty Cooper’s sis­ter Polly mys­te­ri­ously moved to be­fore the birth of her twins in sea­son two. And, where will Ri­ley’s Lau­rie fit into all of this?

De­spite Ri­ley’s mu­sic icon pedi­gree – she’s Elvis Pres­ley’s grand­daugh­ter – she’s earned her stripes, and even scored a Golden Globe nom­i­na­tion for The Girl­friend Ex­pe­ri­ence.

Ri­ley will star as Lau­rie Lake in sea­son three of Riverdale
