KJ Apa Compares Working on 'Riverdale' to Being 'in Jail'

KJ Apa is giving his honest opinion about working on Riverdale.

In a new interview with Demi Moore, the 23-year-old actor, who plays Archie Andrews on The CW series, talked about going from working on Riverdale to his pandemic thriller Songbird, saying that working on the movie was a freeing experience for him.

“I felt so free coming from a show where I feel like I’m in jail a lot of the time,” KJ told Demi in an interview with Interview. “There are so many restrictions on what I can and can’t do.”

“With this [Songbird] character, it was like, ‘Wow, this is what it’s like to really express myself in a natural way,’” KJ continued. “I wasn’t covered in makeup or hair products. I had long hair and a beard. I just felt free.”

KJ isn’t the first Riverdale star to compare working on the show to “jail.” During an interview last year, his co-star Lili Reinhart had similar comments. Read what she said here.

Also in the interview, KJ Apa opened up about dealing with all the fame that comes with starring in Riverdale.
