“I loved that it was not what you expect when talking about a teen love story. It seemed a lot deeper than many other young adult romances out there. It’s more raw and grounded in grief. Most teen movies concentrate on drinking and experimenting and losing your virginity. This is the internal struggle of these two young people feeling overwhelming emotions as their worlds are changing,” explains the Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart who stars as the female lead Grace Town in Chemical Hearts.

“For me, it’s boring to see another perfect girl in a movie—the popular cheerleader or the dream girl are not the roles I’m drawn to. I want to play darker roles in darker stories. What really drew me to Grace was her sadness and her desire not to attract attention. She still somehow gets Henry’s consideration and that was really interesting to play,” Riverdale added further.
