If we ever com­plain about be­ing too busy, re­mind us about ac­tress Hay­ley Law’s sched­ule. The Vancity na­tive, 25, has been in the biz for two years and al­ready has two TV shows (notably, she plays Va­lerie on Riverdale), two movies and a mu­sic ca­reer on her re­sumé. When we spoke, Law had just wrapped the fan­tasy film Spon­ta­neous. Af­ter bid­ding farewell to the crew, she also made sure to say bye to… craft ser­vices? “I did a lit­tle drive-through,” she says. “I’d never had dev­illed eggs be­fore, and they are so good.” Here, we re­cap the first chap­ter of Law’s ca­reer. JILL OF ALL TRADES Be­fore mak­ing the leap to act­ing, Law “lit­er­ally worked ev­ery­where.” “There was a run­ning joke when we were shoot­ing Riverdale. When­ever we went for din­ner, they’d ask, ‘Hay­ley, do you work here? Have you worked here?’ But the weird­est job I had was work­ing at a deli. It was so not my thing.” SEC­OND TIME’S A CHARM Aside from a McDon­ald’s com­mer­cial, Riverdale was the first act­ing job Law ever booked. “I was sur­prised. I thought it was only a two-episode thing, and they were like, ‘No, this is the real deal.’” NET­FLIX STAR Shortly af­ter, she won the role of Lizzie El­liot on the sci-fi se­ries Al­tered Car­bon. (No spoil­ers—just watch it.) One of the best parts, she says, was work­ing with showrun­ner Laeta Kalo­gridis. “[When I work with fe­male pro­duc­ers and di­rec­tors], as soon as I step on-set, there’s an in­stant ‘Hell ya’ con­nec­tion.” SIDE HUS­TLE She also re­leased an al­bum, Hayleau, in 2016 and has been work­ing on a fol­low-up to the synth-y R&B EP.
