Watching Lili Reinhart is watching a star on the rise. She not only stars in the hit CW show Riverdale — now in its fourth season — but also appeared in 2019’s hit film Hustlers, acting alongside the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Cardi B and fellow TIME 100 Next honoree Keke Palmer.

So of course we had to touch base with the actor during the cocktail hour to talk about her next move. In 2020, she will star and executive produce the upcoming film Chemical Hearts, based on the 2016 novel by the same name.

“That was so cool for me. And it’s just like a real drama, and I’m stoked for people to see me in this purely raw and dramatic role in a film for the first time,” Reinhart told TIME. As for why she was ready to produce, just look to the stars. “I mean I’m a Virgo I like to have control! I like creative control.”

And she has shown no signs of giving up creative control.

She’s also set to publish a book of poetry titled Swimming Lessons.

“When you’re on a show for X amount of years you feel like you want to do something that you’re in control of. And so that made me, you know, want to write my poetry book that I wrote, and that made me want to really kind of develop a script from the ground up,” she said.

“I like to keep it interesting. I’m very particular about the things I want to work on,” she continued about her career choices, one of which includes working alongside J Lo who stood out to her for her work ethic.

“She’s wonderful, she’s such a hard worker. She really is a bad ass,” Reinhart.

And Reinhart was all smiles when asked about getting to work together with her co-star and boyfriend Cole Sprouse. “I think we’re lucky that we get to work together now, because most people don’t get to work with their significant other. So I’m very appreciative of it,” she said.

But Reinhart’s also made headlines for how she uses her platform. She’s a vocal advocate for body positivity, and openly speaks about her struggles with anxiety and depression. Although she’s more private about her personal life, Reinhart is also the longtime girlfriend of her Riverdale co-star Cole Sprouse.

This year Reinhart was chosen for the TIME 100 Next list, an expansion of the TIME 100 franchise that spotlights 100 rising stars who are shaping the future of their fields— from business to entertainment, sports, politics and beyond.

Awkwafina Met Chanel Miller and Said It Was ‘Just Awesome’

Awkwafina Met Chanel Miller and Said It Was ‘Just Awesome’

Few events can bring together people from across the world and across fields and disciplines like the TIME 100. And that much was evident Thursday night at the TIME 100 Next event.

Awkwafina, the rapper-turned-actor seemingly can do it all: her comedic timing stole scenes in 2018’s Ocean’s Eight and Crazy Rich Asians, and her dramatic role starring in 2019’s The Farewell earned her rave reviews. The Farewell was also one of the most successful independent movies of the year, earning more than $17 million.

Chanel Miller, the sexual assault survivor who the public only knew as “Emily Doe”—the young woman who raised her voice with a victim impact statement that detailed how she was sexually assaulted by former Stanford student Brock Turner in 2015. In September, Miller reclaimed her identity in a compelling memoir Know My Name, which jolted national attention back on her story.

When Chanel Miller hit the red carpet on Thursday at the TIME 100 Next event, there was one highly influential individual she was determined to meet. “I’m feeling super wonderful, and I would really like to meet Awkwafina,” she said.

And this meeting of the minds did happen. They quickly caught up and it was “just awesome,” as Awkwafina put it. No wonder they were thrilled to be in each other’s company.

‘It’s on All of Us to Listen.’ Emily Weiss Pays Tribute to Young Women Activists Around the World

‘It’s on All of Us to Listen.’ Emily Weiss Pays Tribute to Young Women Activists Around the World

Glossier CEO and founder Emily Weiss toasted her fellow honorees at the TIME 100 Next event on Thursday in New York City.

TIME 100 Next is an expansion of TIME’s flagship TIME 100 franchise, celebrates 100 individuals who are shaping the future of art, business, sports, politics, science, activism and more.

Weiss is one of her generation’s most successful disruptors; Her skincare and makeup line Glossier, which only launched in 2014, passed a $1 billion evaluation in March. Facing a room of fellow industry leaders, Weiss honored young women around the world.

She spoke about the fact that next year the younger generation could become America’s biggest voting block ever.

“I have a hunch we’re going to see something very different from these young Americans,” she said.

Weiss pointed to young female activists like advocate for gun control Emma Gonzalez and climate activist Greta Thunberg, who have inspired young people to get engaged in political movements.

“It’s on all of us to listen to their voices and amplify their message,” Weiss said.

“So my toast tonight is to those teenage girls,” she continued. “To girls everywhere, may you know how much power you have to change the world.”

Ryan O’Connell Salutes Everyone ‘Born Into a World That Wasn’t Built for Them’ at TIME 100 Next

Ryan O’Connell Salutes Everyone ‘Born Into a World That Wasn’t Built for Them’ at TIME 100 Next

Ryan O’Connell, the creator and star of Netflix show Special, paid tribute to everyone who was “born into a world that wasn’t built for them” at TIME 100 Next on Thursday night.

In a profanity-laced speech, O’Connell declared, “We’re throwing out the old world. Together we’re building a new one.”

One that’s both “chic” and “handicap accessible,” he vowed.

O’Connell has changed the conversation about disability with Special — for audiences and for writers and directors behind the scenes. The semi-autobiographical series follows the millennial struggles of a gay man with cerebral palsy. (O’Connell is also gay and has cerebral palsy.) Like the protagonist of his show, O’Connell had kept his disability a secret and told friends his limp was because he was hit by a car. He was, in fact, hit by a car but had the limp from before then.

O’Connell is one of 100 honorees on TIME’s 100 Next list, which highlights rising stars who are shaping the future of business, entertainment, sports, politics, health, science, activism and more.
