Famous in Love's Charlie DePew Lost 'Riverdale' Role to KJ Apa

Charlie DePew is the definition of charming in this new feature for NKD magazine.

The 20-year-old actor opens up about his new show Famous in Love and how he got the role. Check it:

On first working with co-star Bella Thorne on Shake It Up: That was in the seventh grade. Who knew I would be working with Bella again?

On how he landed the part of Jake: I sent a taped audition and three months later, I got a call saying they wanted me to test for Jake Salt. I didn’t end up getting the part and in December of 2015, after the pilot was shot, they found out that the show was picked up but that the cast was put on hold. There ended up being a re-cast for the character of Jake and I knew this was my second shot.

On auditioning for Riverdale: After losing the role the first time, I actually went out and auditioned for The CW. It was between me and KJ Apa and I think we all know how that ended up. After that, I was really ready to just step away from acting for awhile; thank God I didn’t quit when I thought I would because everything worked out the way that it was meant to.
