“Preparation is essential for a good performance,” KJ captioned it.

When he “realizes” he’s on camera, he runs after the person filming. (It’s gotta be Cole Sprouse, right?!)

KJ Apa Didn't Tell Anyone That He Broke His Hand In The 'Riverdale' Season Finale

KJ Apa Didn't Tell Anyone That He Broke His Hand In The 'Riverdale' Season Finale

We all know that KJ Apa‘s hand injury was actually real and he did indeed break his hand while filming Riverdale‘s season finale.

What we didn’t know is that he didn’t tell anyone he did!

“That was a gnarly day of shooting, I’ll tell you that much,” KJ shared with TVLine about the scenes on the frozen lake, where he was pounding on ice to get Cheryl out of the water.

He adds, “I wasn’t really punching the ice, but I got a little bit too excited. I was punching a foam mat…[that was] sitting on the ice. It was cold, so I didn’t really feel it.”

He actually didn’t even realize his hand was actually broken, either: “It wasn’t until 20 minutes after that I realized I broke my hand. I didn’t tell anyone.”

Lili Reinhart is Acknowledging KJ Apa's Birthday Today in the Best Way

It’s Riverdale star KJ Apa‘s 20th birthday today (happy birthday KJ!) and his co-star Lili Reinhart 1,000 percent wins the day with her hilarious well-wishes.

We already know these two are tight from the adorable pics they posted at the Wizard World Comic Con, but then again the entire cast seems super close.

Lili uploaded three videos (so far!) to Twitter to embarrass KJ.

“Happy birthday to the guy who always steals my phone and does sh-t like this. But I love you for it,” she writes on the first one, accompanied by a video of KJ making absurd faces.

In the second video, KJ is vigorously flossing his teeth and in the third he is making an honestly alarming Joker-esque face that is sort of impressive and sort of terrifying.

Go inside to see her birthday tributes in all of their glory.

KJ Apa Had a Fan Refer to Him by His 'Riverdale' Nickname at a Chipotle

KJ Apa Had a Fan Refer to Him by His 'Riverdale' Nickname at a Chipotle

Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart has hilarious anecdotes about interactions with fans who recognize her in her day-to-day life — and as it turns out, the actor who plays Archie, KJ Apa, does as well.

“The girl at chipotle just called me archiekins,” he tweeted yesterday (June 13) much to his fans’ delight. The tweet has amassed over 60,000 likes.

Veronica (Camila Mendes) calls her sort-of-sometimes boyfriend Archie “Archiekins” throughout season 1 of Riverdale, so we are dying that a Chipotle worker used the affectionate nickname.

His followers on Twitter have only one question — does her prefer Archiekins or “Daddy”?? (Read all about the Daddy Wars here: it’s a doozie.)
