“Riverdale” Season 2 cast member Mary Nichols recently shared some information about new character Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos).

Nichols, who plays the role of Hiram’s wife Hermione, said that Veronica’s (Camila Mendes) dad will have a hard time fitting in with the rest of the people in Riverdale. “He’s a very powerful and dangerous character, so when he comes to Riverdale, he’s not exactly going to blend in,” she told TV Line.

But even though Hiram would need some time to adjust in the show, Nichols said that his portrayer is exactly how she imagined he would be like. The “Night Shift” actor was cast in the hit CW series in April, and this month, executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said that Hiram will make his debut in the show during the first half of Season 2.

He also described the character, telling Entertainment Weekly, “Hiram is a family man, he loves and treasures his wife and especially his daughter. But there’s no denying that we’ve built up someone who has very dark dealings and who has a criminal past. He’s not like the Serpents, who are a street-level gang. He’s operating at a much higher level and has tentacles everywhere. The question will be: Is Hiram truly reformed? What does he want? How does Veronica figure into his plan? How will Archie figure into his plans?”

Consuelos has already been photographed with his co-stars during a recent table read for “Riverdale” Season 2. The production for the upcoming episodes has also commenced in Vancouver, Canada. Leaked photos from the set show Archie (KJ Apa) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) wearing a kilt. In addition, Veronica was photographed wearing what looked like a wedding dress.

As of late, it is still unclear whether or not Veronica and Archie, who are a new couple, will tie the knot in Season 2. One speculation surrounding the photo could be that the scene will take place in one of the character’s dreams or imagination since deceased character Jason (Trevor Stines) was also present on set.

“Riverdale” Season 2 also stars Luke Perry as Fred, Lili Reinhart as Betty, Madchen Amick as Alice, Skeet Ulrich as FP and more.
