If you've been keeping up with season two of Riverdale, then you'll be pretty aware that Betty Cooper has had a really rough time lately.
For some reason, the serial killer who has been named the 'Black Hood' has taken a particular interest in her, and as a result of their twisted relationship, Betty had basically lost everyone in her life that she cared about.
To 'protect them' of course.
Now, Lili Reinhart has spoken to Bustle about the toll it's all taking on Betty.
"It brought me closer to Betty; it made me feel like I got to know her better on a personal level,” she shared. “It wasn’t Betty’s interaction with anyone else, it was just focusing on her and all the different shades and sides of her and her darkness. It made me feel a lot closer to the character that I play, which is an opportunity that I don’t think people get to have."
You may have also noticed that during her time working alongside the Black Hood, Betty lost her iconic high pony tail.
"I wanted to show Betty’s emotional state through her appearance," Lili continued.
"I remember reading episode 5 and calling down and saying in the last scene when she has broken things off with everyone, I want to be in a pale sweater and I want to look completely washed out, I want to have barely any makeup on. I want to look like a hollow person.
"I wanted her to look hollow because she is at the end, because she has no one," she added. "The Black Hood has completely ripped apart everything that she thought about who she was and made her rethink who she was."
She continued, "My hair changes: at first she tries to put on a facade like things are OK then progressively throughout the episode the hair comes down, it is in a low pony, then my makeup starts to dissipate as well, and added some dark under eye circles to help give that hollow look."
