KJ Kapa sat down with us at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 and discussed his upcoming role in The CW’s Riverdale. Kapa plays the one and only Archie Andrews. Kapa touched on the enormous weight of portraying such an iconic character, learning about that character, Archie and Jughead, and more!

Kapa is a New Zealander but if his reception at Comic-Con is any indication, he should feel right at home in the States.

Catch KJ Apa in Riverdale, which premieres on Thursday, on The CW Network.
