How did KJ Apa and Cole Sprouse prepare to play their on-screen parents for the “Riverdale” flashback episode?

Now we know! The two stars – who put on epic performances as young Fred Andrews and FP Jones in season three episode “The Midnight Club” – are dishing in a recent interview all about how they got ready to channel their parents! The best part? The episode truly shows how good the boys are at acting, since they didn’t get much time to research for their parts!

“We’ll receive an episode like the day of. So, in terms of preparation, we didn’t really get too much preparation aside from the fact that we’ve all been working with the people playing our parents for quite some time,” said Cole.

And KJ definitely agreed! The actor said that the best preparation was just getting to talk to his on-screen dad, played by Luke Perry. Everyone did such an amazing job in the episode, we’re so shocked to hear how fast they had to get into character!
