ARCHIE

AKA KJ APA

OK! (Australia) - - Exclusive -

The sea­son pre­miere will fo­cus around the af­ter­math of Archie’s fa­ther Fred get­ting shot at Pop’s – and ac­cord­ing to the Kiwi-born hot­tie who plays the show’s main man, he’s hell-bent on re­venge!

‘I read that first episode of the sec­ond sea­son and I was think­ing, “I don’t know if I’m good enough to do this,”’ 20-year-old KJ con­fesses, re­call­ing that Archie was a lover, not a fighter, in the first sea­son. ‘I’m a new ac­tor. I’m new to this kind of ma­te­rial and I was cush­ion­ing my­self. I re­ally have learnt a lot this sea­son and I think I’ve shot some of the best stuff I’ve ever done.’

That in­cludes a steamy sex scene in the sea­son re­turn with on-screen girl­friend Veron­ica, but there’s an­other Riverdale lass that KJ hopes Archie ends up with – scan­dalous!

‘I would love to see Betty and Archie get to­gether,’ he ad­mits. ‘If there was any re­la­tion­ship that I would ship for, it would be Archie and Betty, which is kind of a clas­sic, iconic re­la­tion­ship.’
