Riverdale's Veronica & Archie Are Dealing With A Lot Together, KJ Apa Says

KJ Apa gives us a charming smile in this pic from his Teen Vogue feature.

The Riverdale star opened up about the future of Varchie (Veronica and Archie) in season two, since we know they’re a hot and heavy item now.

“Both of them are experiencing something completely new in their lives for the very first time,” KJ says about the characters. “It’s interesting exploring that with Veronica as well, which is cool.”

While Archie is dealing with his own dad being shot, Veronica is dealing with hers coming back into her life; and Archie is also dealing with her dad too, since he is the boyfriend.

“There’s a lot of funny things in there between us that completely show that side,” KJ adds, speaking of his scenes with Mark Consuelos. “I think any kind of storylines with your girlfriend’s dad is always gonna be fun.”

Hiram, KJ says is “a very protective man. That was really fun, playing with that with Mark.”

Riverdale returns next week on Wednesday, October 11th on The CW.

The Flash's Candice Patton Sends KJ Apa Get Well Wishes on Twitter

Everyone was worried about KJ Apa once news broke that he was in a insanely scary accident yesterday.

The Riverdale star fell asleep at the wheel while driving home after a late night on set in Vancouver, Canada.

Many fans reached out to KJ following the accident, sending him well wishes online — including Candice Patton.

The Flash star was one of the many who sent her thoughts to be with the actor.

“We love you @kj_apa !” Candice wrote on Twitter. “And I am relieved to hear you are ok. Sending so much [purple heart emoji]“.

So sweet!

If you didn’t know, The Flash and Riverdale casts are close friends, and Candice is a big fan of Riverdale herself.

Candice even let the Riverdale cast “babysit” her pup Zoe during Comic-Con earlier this year.

Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa & Camila Mendes Rock Jughead's Signature Beanie

Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa & Camila Mendes Rock Jughead's Signature Beanie

Jughead wouldn’t be Jughead without his crown beanie — but it turns out that the entire Riverdale cast can rock that thing.

Cole Sprouse snapped his cast mates in Jughead’s signature headgear on the set last night in Vancouver, Canada — and they all look so cool.

The beanie — a whoopee cap — actually has a really special meaning behind it with the series and the original comics. It was really popular with young people right around the time Jughead made his comic book debut in 1941.

Factory workers actually used to invert their felt fedoras and chop off the brims so their eyesight wouldn’t be restricted while working. When they got new hats, they’d pass their old hat down to their kids.

Check out Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa and Camila Mendes rocking the cap below:

KJ Apa Seen for First Time Since News of Car Accident

We’re so glad to see that KJ Apa is out there and doing well following his car accident last week!

We already saw pics of the 20-year-old Riverdale actor playing soccer over the weekend, but didn’t know the ordeal he went through days prior.

Now, KJ has been spotted while getting in a work out on Thursday (September 21) in Vancouver, Canada.

This is the first time that the 20-year-old actor has been spotted after news of him being involved in a car accident last week following a long night of filming Riverdale.

KJ reportedly was on set for a majority of the day and then fell asleep behind the wheel of his car on his 45 minute drive home. WBTV, the studio behind the show, released a lengthy statement clarifying the details surrounding what actually happened. We’re just glad that KJ is alright!

WBTV Responds to KJ Apa Car Accident Reports, Clarifies Details

We’re still in shock over the details surrounding KJ Apa‘s car accident last week, but we’re so glad that he was not injured! Now, more details revealing what actually happened have been released via Riverdale studio WBTV.

It was initially reported that KJ had fallen asleep behind the wheel following a 16-hour workday, but WBTV says he actually worked 14.2 hours. Also, the previous day was a workday of just 2.5 hours.

The accident spurred calls from cast and crew to change conditions on set and allow for them to receive car services when working late hours. WBTV says that there is already a policy in place for cast and crew to be provided with “a taxi, a driver or a hotel room upon request.”

“The safety of the cast and crew on all of our productions is of paramount importance to the Studio. Productions adhere to the Screen Actors Guild–mandated turnaround time of 12 hours from wrap time to next day call time for cast members,” WBTV said in the statement. “In accordance with industry standard policy, if any cast or crew member feels tired or unsafe at any time after working, the Studio will provide a taxi, a driver or a hotel room upon request. This is communicated to all cast and crew, both in writing and verbally, at the beginning of production and is reiterated continuously throughout the duration of production.”

Cole Sprouse Is Petitioning For Cast Transportation After KJ Apa's Accident; Just Like The 'Smallville' Cast Did For Tom Welling

Cole Sprouse Is Petitioning For Cast Transportation After KJ Apa's Accident; Just Like The 'Smallville' Cast Did For Tom Welling

We’re so thankful that KJ Apa is okay after a scary car crash that happened recently.

The Riverdale star was heading back to his hotel after a 16-hour day on the set, and fell asleep at the wheel.

Reports say that co-star Cole Sprouse is petitioning for the cast to have drivers available for them because of the long hours they work — something that Smallville stars Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum will probably support, since they did the same thing.

“All of us are driving to a location at 4:30 a.m. with one eye open and you’re in every scene,” Michael, who played Lex Luthor, revealed in a new podcast. “I think it got to a point where we all like signed a letter for you because we’re like ‘You’re going to kill Superman.’”

Tom adds, “[It was] Unbeknownst to me, because I was just told it was already done, but you all signed something, because we weren’t allowed to have drivers for some reason.”

He continued, “I was getting up at 4:30, driving an hour and a half, working an 18-hour day then driving back, sleeping five hours. And you guys were like, ‘Well, he’s gonna die. He’s gonna run into a tree and the show’s gonna be over.’ So you guys kind of gave up, you waived your rights to ‘If one had a driver, everybody had a driver.’ So, I got a driver and it was a big difference.”

We hope something will happen, because this shouldn’t have happened at all.
