Riverdale: Meet Hermosa Lodge actress Mishel Prada - age, Instagram, roles!


Watch out! There is a powerful new character in town.

If you like surprises, we can't imagine season 4 has been a disappointment so far...

Since the show first arrived in 2017, audiences have been completely taken with the wild and compelling assortment of characters in Riverdale. Based on Archie Comics characters, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's hit series has arguably only gotten better as it has progressed. 

Now, that's certainly not to say that it hasn't rolled with some controversial decisions; honestly, what great show wouldn't? Nevertheless, we've loved watching fan-favourites adapt to an environment in which there is always something lurking around the corner. 

This has never been so true as in season 4. They've dropped some serious bombshells on us, but also, some intriguing new characters we're keen to see more of. 


Riverdale: Hermosa Lodge

In season 4 episode 5 - titled 'Chapter Sixty-Two: Witness for the Prosecution' - we have been thrown into the dealings of a brand new character. 

Hermosa Lodge (played by Mishel Prada) is clearly going to be a serious contender when it comes to shaping the direction of the series. Working as a private investigator, she shows up to help free Hiram, and frankly, the mystery surrounding her arrival has us contemplating some pretty big questions. 

The character's relationship with sister Veronica is going to be one to keep an eye out for, and we're intrigued to see what will happen when it comes to taking down their enemy in common. 

Mishel has already made a great impression on fans; so, where have we seen her before?

Hermosa is set to be an impactful presence in season 4, so you'll probably want to head over to Mishel's Instagram and give her a follow.

In a recent post, she shared an image of her on set with her co-star captioned: "Veronica and Hermosa Lodge on film." Fans have been quick to comment their thoughts and hopes for the character, and personally, we just can't wait to unpack what Mishel has in store.
