KJ Apa Put Madelaine Petsch's Needs Ahead of His Own While filming 'Riverdale's Season One Finale

The cast of Riverdale is seriously one of the best casts.

While speaking to Marie Claire, Madelaine Petsch opened up about filming the final scenes for the season one finale — you know, the one where she plunges into a frozen lake and Archie bangs open the ice on the lake to rescue her.

Madelaine shared the story about how, even though KJ Apa‘s hand was broken then, he still put her needs first.

“It shows you what kind of person KJ is — we were waiting between one part of the scene and another, and his hand was already broken but he didn’t know yet,” she shares. “We were freezing cold.”

Madelaine adds, “I remember KJ picked me up and held me and a location guy put a heated blanket on me, and everyone crowded around me breathing on me to keep me warm. That just shows you what kind of people I work with. We genuinely care about each other.”

On top of that, remember the scene where Cheryl spits water on Archie? KJ‘s hand was broken then too.

“That was such a big day for all of us — KJ broke his hand during filming, so we only had one take of everything that night,” she says. “He hurt himself and then they were like, ‘Okay, we got one take and then we gotta go.’”

“We had one take for me to hold the water and spit it on him—it became very serious very quickly.”
