“I was in awe a little bit about the fact that I was there and sitting up front,” she said of the experience. “It felt cool to be a part of something like that and to be in a room with so many people in the fashion industry, which I have never really been exposed to. I’ve only really been in the spotlight for not even a year, so that fact that I’m already doing fashion week is something that I don’t take for granted. I feel very honored to be where I am in such a short amount of time.”

Born in Cleveland to what she describes as a middle-class family, Reinhart started acting and modeling at an early age, before quickly realizing it was something she wanted to pursue further. “My mom would drive me from Cleveland to New York City and use my dad’s hotel points for auditions,” she recalled. “They were the most supportive parents that I could have. Without them, I wouldn’t have gotten anywhere. My mom would take off work to take me to auditions, because they believed in me, which is a very big leap of faith. Seeing it from their point of view, they must have been like, ‘Is my child even good at this?’ But they knew it brought me so much happiness.”

It was during this time that Riverdale entered the picture. “I got my first audition for the show during that period of my life when I was rebuilding myself, and in between meds,” she explained. “I went on a medicine that gave me the worst mood swings—I felt like a monster. My mom was like, ‘I can’t even be in the same room as you.’ And this is when I was self-taping for Riverdale. I spent three hours on my first audition tape, and I felt like I could not get it right. I sent it in, and wasn’t the girl. It doesn’t surprise me, because I was in a sh*t place when I taped that.”

”I auditioned in person with a fresh take, and a fire under my ass that I hadn’t had before,” she said. “I felt so close, and I had been so close to so many things before, that I didn’t want to let this one slip through. And I remember leaving the final audition and calling my manager, as I was driving towards the sunset, and saying, ‘I feel proud of myself for what I’ve done. Regardless of what happens, I feel happy and really at peace.’ And I truly felt that.”
