KJ Apa Doesn't View Himself as a Singer & Was Scared to Sing in 'I Still Believe'

KJ Apa Doesn't View Himself as a Singer & Was Scared to Sing in 'I Still Believe'

KJ Apa did a hot new photo shoot with WWD and we have all the photos, plus some interview highlights, for you to check out right here!

The 22-year-old actor can currently be seen in the movie I Still Believe, which is available for streaming right now. Here’s what he shared with the mag:

On his career trajectory: “Every time I try and plan my career out, something comes by that completely throws me off, like a faith-based movie. Never did I ever, one, want to do a faith-based movie or two, imagine myself doing one. But that made me realize that it’s not about that. It’s about what inspires you. I hope that I can keep having opportunities to do work on projects that I’m inspired by. I feel like, at the end of the day, if you’re doing that, then you’re winning in life.”

On having to sing in I Still Believe: “The music was also one of the things that had me second guessing myself. I don’t see myself as a singer. Even still I don’t. I was scared to sing. But I was like, ‘F–k it. I’m just going to do it. I’m going to give it a go.’”

On being in the spotlight: “It was [something I saw for myself], which is weird. Not to be famous, but I always knew as a kid that I wasn’t going to be in New Zealand, that I was going to leave at an early age, and that I wasn’t going to do what everyone else was doing.”

KJ Apa's 'I Still Believe' Heading to VOD, Two Weeks After Release

KJ Apa's 'I Still Believe' Heading to VOD, Two Weeks After Release

KJ Apa‘s new film I Still Believe is already headed to VOD, just two weeks after hitting theaters.

The movie, which also stars Britt Robertson, was released on March 13th, just days before movie theaters around the country shut down due to the coronavirus.

Now fans who didn’t catch it in theaters will be able to watch from home on March 27th.

Lionsgate announced that the company still supports a theatrical release window, but this is obviously an extraordinary circumstance as current movies are unable to be viewed in theaters.

“The theatrical experience is core to our business, and exhibitors are our integral partners and allies. With theaters closed nationwide due to these unprecedented events, we want to continue to make I Still Believe available to consumers. We’re enormously proud of the movie that the Erwin Brothers created and are grateful to be able to share it with audiences for their home viewing pleasure,” Lionsgate chairman Joe Drake said in a statement.

Despite most audiences staying home for the past week, the movie still grossed $9.8 million at the domestic box office and it earned an “A” CinemaScore.

KJ Apa is opening up about singing in his projects.

The 23-year-old actor, who portrays musician Jeremy Camp in I Still Believe, and sings frequently on Riverdale, revealed he actually doesn’t like to sing.

KJ recently told MTV that he doesn’t like to sing in public, or privately, and would just rather play his guitar.

“People just … keep forcing me to sing in all these projects,” he said.

As for all those musical episodes on Riverdale

Riverdale is a perfect example of ‘I’m a musician,’” he added. “But am I particularly enjoying the musical aspects of the project that I’m doing? Not really. I have to do it.”

KJ Apa Reveals the Hardest Words to Say in an American Accent

KJ Apa Reveals the Hardest Words to Say in an American Accent

KJ Apa has a hard time saying some words in an American accent – and he has to use them on Riverdale all the time!

The 22-year-old actor spilled on why New Zealanders are so good at accents and what doesn’t come as easily.

“I think that’s because we’re constantly bombarded with American content over there when you grow up. All TV is American, music, radio. So I think it’s easier for us to learn than [Americans] to do a New Zealand accent,” KJ explained.

He added, “The hardest ones for me have always been burger and girlfriend and I have to say it a lot on Riverdale.”
