KJ Apa Shares How They Prep For Kissing Scenes on 'Riverdale' During Pandemic

KJ Apa Shares How They Prep For Kissing Scenes on 'Riverdale' During Pandemic

KJ Apa is opening up about new pandemic protocols on the set of Riverdale!

The 23-year-old actor was on Live with Kelly and Ryan, and was asked about how they are handling kissing scenes these days.

If you didn’t know, some productions have actors kiss with a plexiglass in between them, and edit it out later.

“[We rinse our mouths with] Listerine. They have us come to set a little early, and we have to rinse our mouths for one minute. There’s a guy standing there with a timer, counting down sixty seconds,” KJ said. “And we have to rinse our mouths out before the scene, before every take, for sixty seconds. Apparently it kills all the germs in your mouth, but in my mind, by the time you’ve got your tongue in someone’s mouth, I don’t think it really matters, to be honest.”

KJ also opened up about an on set injury he had during an action sequence, while being directed by Michael Bay on the set of Songbird. Check it out in the video!

KJ Apa Shows Off His Shorter New Haircut!

KJ Apa has a much shorter hairdo now!

The 23-year-old Riverdale star was seen rocking the trimmed up look while going out for coffee on Saturday (November 21) in Vancouver, British Columbia.

He even showed off the look on his Instagram story a couple days later.

KJ‘s new short hair seems to be a change for his character Archie on Riverdale, as they are doing a seven year time jump on the show.

The actor has had somewhat longer hair for quite some time while filming the series, and this is a big change for his character.

If you didn’t know, earlier this month, KJ‘s new thriller movie Dead Reckoning was released on digital retailers.

The film “takes place on the island of Nantucket and tells the story of Tillie (India Eisley) whose summer romance with Niko (Apa) comes on the heels of her parents’ sudden and mysterious death in an airplane crash,” according to Deadline.

Speaking of KJ playing characters with the same name, he also stars in the upcoming new movie Songbird, alongside Sofia Carson. His character’s name is also Nico, though it’s spelled slightly differently.

Songbird was just given a release date – it’s skipping theaters, and going straight to on demand!

The release date for the upcoming pandemic thriller Songbird was just revealed!

KJ Apa and Sofia Carson star in the movie as a couple who find love during quarantine of a COVID-23 virus, but are unable to meet face to face because of restrictions.

It was just announced that the Michael Bay produced film will premiere as a premium video on-demand release on all transactional platforms (iTunes, Amazon, etc.) It will cost $19.99 for a 48-hour rental, before premiering on a streaming service in 2021.

“The pandemic has affected every aspect of our business, from production to release, but Songbird demonstrates that a nimble studio like STX can find effective and profitable ways to make their movies work, as we have similarly with Greenland and My Spy during these challenging times. The show must go on. Songbird is a thrilling movie that will speak to audiences in this moment as it keeps them on the edge of their seats,” Adam Fogelson, chairman, STXfilms Motion Picture Group, said in a statement.

If you missed it, be sure to check out the trailer for Songbird, which was the first to film in Los Angeles during the current pandemic back in July.
