Lili Reinhart—best known for her acclaimed turn in the CW sitcom Riverdale and the crime drama Hustlers—would be seated at a plush West Hollywood hideaway, occupying a quiet low-lit nook for a tête-à-tête over cocktails to cheerily discuss upcoming projects she has in the works. Yet, nothing is normal right now. With a citywide lockdown still in effect and a wave of civil unrest flooding the streets, the traditional meet-and-greet has been ditched for a social-but-distant conversation from her Los Angeles home.
The 23-year-old Cleveland-native, photographed in downtown Los Angeles’ Hotel Figueroa, is soft-spoken yet refreshingly unscripted and poised. She peppers her quarantine tales with expletives like basketball dunks to add emphasis to her rhetoric. She speaks in a singsong of passion-fueled inflections and a low-octave stream-of-consciousness, rather than the carefully orchestrated interview full of boundaries and topics deemed off-limits by a team of handlers. With one intimate anecdote after the next, Reinhart spans her childhood all the way up to the new abnormal in which we currently grapple with too many preventable Covid-related deaths, our nation’s largest economic downturn since the Great Depression, and an energized civil rights movement guided by the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement in the wake of the brutal police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
