CAA has signed newcomer Camila Mendes, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. She previously was with the Carson Kolker Organization.

The young actress is graduating from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts this week, but she already has landed a series regular role as Archie's longtime crush Veronica Lodge on Riverdale, Greg Berlanti's "surprising and subversive" take on Archie Comics, which The CW has picked up to series.

Mendes continues to be managed by Lena Roklin and Bryan Brucks and Luber Roklin.
