KJ Apa Compared Working On "Riverdale" To Being "In Jail"


Recommended Posts

There are times when I'm like, 'Wow, [the fans] really have no idea that we are actual people.

"I felt so free coming from a show where I feel like I'm in jail a lot of the time," he told Demi Moore. "With this character, it was like, 'Wow, this is what it’s like to really express myself in a natural way.' I wasn't covered in makeup or hair products. I had long hair and a beard. I just felt free."

 

"There’s been so much pressure in playing Archie," KJ said of his role on Riverdale. "I'm so grateful for the show and its success, but at the same time, there's a lot of baggage that comes with that success."
 

"I try and look at it from a fan's perspective to understand the way they think," KJ explained. "But there are times when I'm like, 'Wow, they really have no idea that we are actual people. They can't separate us from our characters.' You don't have that in other professions."

He went on: "You don't dissect the life of a builder and start judging the decisions he makes in his life with his wife and kids."

 

"As an actor, I will be judged on everything: my political opinions, my opinions on drugs, my opinions on the people I want to be with. Everything," KJ said. "It's something I've had to come to terms with."

I didn't know Riverdale had dedicated fans :rip: I feel like even the people on ATRL who watch it don't care about it that way.

I get it but :rip: has he been working since he was a kid? Cause if he started on ribwedale he was already older and im sure he knows how being a fan of something is :skull: so idk why it would be some big deal to "picture myself as a fan" it just sounds so ...

I don't understand your comment, to be honest, because nothing he said was out of touch. He was absolutely right about how people treat and talk about celebrities, like if they are not human. Yes, they choose to be be in the spotlight and have to deal with the bad sides of fame, but that doesn't make it right. 

 

And are you a celebrity? If not, i don't think you should judge how he feels about it. I feel like people think celebrities are making so much more money than the average person and because of that, they should just shut up and be happy. As if they are not allowed to feel bad from time to time.

Eventhough he shouldn't say this, fans sometimes think celebrities own them something and they become really annoying. As a fan you should know your limits

Truly the new Glee :skull: Terrible show that even the actors hate making

At least Glee was self-aware and broke the fourth wall multiple times, while also knowing how INSANE it was in later seasons. Riverdale is just a POS.

I mean he has a point but at the same time actors get paid exorbitant amounts of money for a fairly simple job (compared to others) so it is what it is.
