KJ APA CAREER

‘Shortland Street’

Apa’s acting career took off almost immediately after he began pursuing it. In 2013, with virtually no acting experience, he earned the dark role of suicidal teen Kane Jenkins in New Zealand’s longest-running primetime soap opera, Shortland Street while still in high school.

Juggling being a student and a budding actor, Apa played Kane for two seasons but had to cut his storyline short when Hollywood came calling.

‘Riverdale’

Having tried out for the role of Archie Andrews in Los Angeles, he nabbed the lead role on The CW’s Riverdale — a darker look at the troubled teen lives of the Archie Comics characters. But winning the role wasn’t without its obstacles.

While the other major characters of Riverdale were cast, it took producers of the series an arduous six months, wading through countless redheads throughout the Los Angeles area, to find their leading man, and they found him at the last minute.

Apa admitted his first audition was lackluster, his over 12-hour plane ride from New Zealand not helping his odds. However, after being called back for a second audition, the fledgling actor found his stride and allowed his musical talents to shine.

“K.J. read for us and he was immediately Archie Andrews,” series executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told Vulture in 2017. “It was the right combination of earnestness and edge. And he played the guitar like a dream.”KJ Apa Net Worth 2020, Social Life, Family, Body, Dating and wealth 33

Playing a rendition of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Mary Had a Little Lamb” on his electric guitar for casting directors, Apa was more in his element.

“There were a couple of Southern people in the theater so I bring my guitar,” Apa recalled with a laugh. “I felt really confident after I played that song because music comes really naturally to me and it’s always something I’ve been really passionate about.”

Apa’s combination of boyish good looks and previous experience playing a dark character was what made him the perfect leading man for Riverdale. (His chiseled abs may have helped his chances, too, considering they were part of the pilot’s plot.)

Along with characters Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Apa’s casting made the series complete. Premiering in 2017, Riverdale won positive reviews and was a hit for the network.

Apa’s fast fame as Archie has helped him star in other projects, including the comedy-drama film A Dog’s Purpose (2017), and the upcoming crime drama The Hate You Give (2018) and rom-com The Last Summer (2019).
