Lili Pauline Reinhart (born September 13, 1996) is an American actress, best known for portraying Betty Cooper on The CW drama series Riverdale.

Early life

Reinhart was born in Cleveland, Ohio and raised in the nearby town of Bay Village.[1] She developed a love for singing, acting, and dancing at the age of 10, and begged her mom to drive her to New York for auditions.[2]

Reinhart moved to Los Angeles when she was 18 years old to pursue acting and almost gave up after five months.[2]


Reinhart guest starred on the television series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and starred in the films The Good Neighbor, Miss Stevens, Forever's End, Gibsonburg, The Kings of Summer, Not Waving But Drowning, and Lilith.[3]

On February 9, 2016, Reinhart was cast as Betty Cooper, "sweet, studious, eager-to-please and wholesome with a huge crush on her longtime best friend, Archie" in The CW's teen drama series Riverdale.[4] Previously, Reinhart worked on the Fox sitcom Surviving Jack.[5]

On February 10, 2017, it was announced that Reinhart will star in Mélanie Laurent's upcoming film Galveston, alongside Ben Foster and Elle Fanning.[6]

Personal life

Reinhart is very open about her struggles with depression, and says that Riverdale came into her life when she was in a very dark place.[2]
