KJ Apa Had to 'Unlearn' His Musical Skills For 'Riverdale'

Most of us know that for his audition for Riverdale, KJ Apa took a guitar inside the casting room and played “Mary Had a Little Lamb”.

Speaking with The Last magazine, the actor opened up about how Archie is actually quite a beginner compared to his personal skills.

“I don’t know how to say it, but we’re not at the same level, you know what I mean?” he says. “Somehow I have to say that in not a cocky way, but he’s a beginner.”

KJ adds that “the songs that [Archie] writes, I don’t think I would listen to them. I do not have the same taste in music as him.”

If you’re a fan of KJ, you know that he often posts covers on his Instagram Stories and his favorite bands are Van Halen and Third Eye Blind, among others.

“I listen to a bit of everything, but mostly classic rock and punk rock,” he says. “I’m into harder stuff than Archie is.”

Riverdale airs on Wednesdays on The CW.
