While the hit show Riverdale has more drama than any small town on earth, the actors who play out the roles of Archie and the gang tend to be laid back and relatable.
The most recent news relationship news about Camila Mendes, the actress who plays the brilliant brunette, Veronica Lodge, just proves that she is no different than any other 24-year old. As Nylon's cover girl, she opened up about her budding relationship with non-actor Victor Houston.
She shared that this new relationship is important to her and that because of which, she wants to make it private. Mendes also shared that dating actors in the past has not worked out for her, as dating in the industry can get competitive.
"Actors are really emotionally complicated. You would think they would be more in tune with their emotions, but sometimes they're just not. I just really need to get out of this industry with someone who is in a stable environment," she said.
Well, it looks like the actress did just that because her new beau is not an actor, and instead works in the finance industry. E! Online reported that the couple knew each other since going to high school in Flordia. After graduating from Boston College (plus a semester in Hong Kong), he joined the Oppenheimer & Co. Inc, located in New York, back in 2016.
Houston also has made appearances in Mendes' social feeds, so it comes as no surprise that the couple has been an item for two months already. She first posted a photo with Houston and photographer Barron Roth three weeks ago.
Mendes also said in the interview with Nylon that the reason privacy is so important in this new relationship due to Houston's non-acting status. Not only did she not call him by name, she only called him a prospect.
"It's somebody completely out of the industry. It's funny because I'm more hesitant to talk about it because I don't want him to read this... I actually would totally talk about it right now, if I didn't feel like, Wait, he might read this," she said.

Reading between the lines it is clear that this couple seems to prioritize each other over the media, which is amazing to see. Here's hoping the best for these to lovebirds!
