According to Lili Reinhart, she is not complaining about her job! Yep, the actress set the record straight after she claimed she felt like a “prisoner” on set of Riverdale due to the coronavirus pandemic precautions.
“Love it when my words are taken out of context YET AGAIN. I’m not complaining about going back to work, I’m incredibly grateful to have a job. I’m sad that I can’t see my family for months on end due to travel restrictions. FFS, leave me alone,” she wrote on Twitter on Thursday, September 3. “No wonder people think I’m this pissed off girl all the time. I annoy myself having to speak up about this.”

For those who missed it, the 23-year-old previously told Nylon, “I genuinely feel like a prisoner, going back to work, because I cannot leave Canada. That doesn’t feel good. You can’t go home for Thanksgiving, can’t visit your family. No one can come visit you unless they quarantine for two weeks. It just feels f**ked. I’m very lucky, but it’s like, ‘I need to keep going. I need to keep going.’”
As fans know, filming of the CW show was shut down back in March due to the outbreak. But earlier this month, Vanessa Morgan revealed via her Instagram Stories that she was back on set and that the entire cast and crew are being tested for the coronavirus three times a week throughout production.
Lili also dished to Access a few days before returning to the set, “We’re actually going back this weekend, to Vancouver, to start Season 5. We are heading back, and the gang will be together in a couple short weeks, after we quarantine. Basically, we have to quarantine once we’re in Canada and make sure we’re all COVID free before we can get back on set. So very soon we’ll be reunited… I think we’re very excited to, um, I haven’t seen everyone all together in five months, so it’ll be really nice.”
