Marisol Nichols was also part of Riverdale's regular cast - she played Hermione Lodge, the mother of Veronica (Camila Mendes), to the last. She was a tough business woman who had moved to Riverdale from New York with her daughter and gradually found her increasingly influential position in the small town.
