It’s all about going outside your comfort zone!

Just ask KJ Apa! The 21-year-old “Riverdale” star – who just dished on how he got into character for the epic season three flashback episode – can’t help but gush over the amazing mystery drama where he plays boy-next-door Archie Andrews. According to KJ, the dark story-lines in the series really help him grow as an actor, and he’s always up for the challenge!

“It did get pretty dark, but I was actually stoked about that. From an acting point of view, it was definitely more challenging,” said KJ. “But I think it’s always good to be uncomfortable…[because] I like to be challenged.”

We’ve definitely seen a lot of growth from both KJ and Archie, and we can’t wait to see what the rest of season three has in store for the both of them!

KJ is always pushing his limits to become a better person, and that’s exactly what happened when he first broke into acting!
