KJ Apa Replaces Kian Lawley in 'The Hate U Give'

KJ Apa is stepping into Kian Lawley‘s role in The Hate U Give, Deadline reports.

The Riverdale star will take over Kian‘s role, after Kian was fired for derogatory remarks he made in an old video that resurfaced.

KJ will play the privileged boyfriend to Amandla Stenberg‘s Starr Carter in the film, who witnesses her best friend get murdered by a police officer.

His character “never concerned himself with the different skin color of the girlfriend he adores, and knows little about her life back home. Until she becomes the only witness in the police shooting, and becomes increasingly political as she grieves the death of her friend Khalil. It awakens him to how deeply race impacts their relationship.”

Issa Rae, Regina King, Sabrina Carpenter also star. The reshoots are filming in Atlanta now.

Camila Mendes Says Veronica Is 'Scared' Of 'Dark Archie' on 'Riverdale'

Don’t tell KJ Apa, but “dark” Archie on Riverdale is kind of scaring Camila Mendes.

Speaking with EW recently, the actress opened up about how Archie’s new demeanor is affecting Veronica right now.

“Veronica, overall, is pretty scared of how intensely Archie can react to certain things,” Camila says. “She has, from the beginning, been warning him about her father and how he shouldn’t get in too deep with him for that very reason, that sometimes it gets out of control.”

She continues, “So, when Veronica sees Archie getting deeper into that, it scares her.”

On top of Archie’s new dark side, Camila talked about how the core four are more separated then event.

But, “in the end, it’s really them against the world. Though it seems like they’re deteriorating, they need to go through that obstacle in order to overcome what’s ahead. It’ll eventually make them stronger.”

Riverdale airs Wednesdays on The CW.
