Skater Boy KJ Apa Bonds With New 'Riverdale' Co-Star Charles Melton

KJ Apa is part of the Riverdale welcoming committee, or just a really nice guy. Or both.

The 20-year-old actor carried his skateboard around while chatting up new co-star Charles Melton on Sunday (July 9) in downtown Vancouver, Canada.

Both guys are in town filming the highly-anticipated second season, as Charles just took over the role of Reggie from Ross Butler.

He’s been keeping in shape and working on his fitness a lot.

Meanwhile, KJ is often seeing skateboarding around VanCity, and it’s giving us hot early 2000s vibes. Cue the Avril Lavigne.

KJ Apa Says Britt Robertson Made His First Film The Best First Film Experience

KJ Apa Says Britt Robertson Made His First Film The Best First Film Experience

We all know and love KJ Apa for his portrayal as Archie on Riverdale.

However, the New Zealand-born actor actually filmed A Dog’s Purpose before the CW show — and it was Britt Robertson who truly welcome him to show business in the Americas.

“She was amazing. She was great,” KJ shared about his co-star. “She knew that it was my first film as well, so she was helping me out a bit.”

He adds, “Obviously you’re there for three months, and you don’t really have anyone else to hang with, so we were hanging out a lot.”

“That’s kind of the other thing I learned, you’re on these projects and you meet these people and you get really close with them and then you never really see them probably for the rest of your life.”

'Riverdale' Father & Son Duo KJ Apa & Luke Perry Are Really Close Off-Screen

'Riverdale' Father & Son Duo KJ Apa & Luke Perry Are Really Close Off-Screen

KJ Apa is really close with his TV dad, Luke Perry.

The Riverdale star explained in a new interview that he bonded with Luke while seeking advice about how to handle his sudden stardom, and how to handle haters.

“He said, ‘Y’know, this kind of thing happens all the time, it’s nothing to do with you.’ But I went to him and I spoke to him and he helped me,” KJ shared, citing when his film A Dog’s Purpose came under fire.

He added about Luke, “He’s the biggest legend, and obviously he went through the whole thing on a way bigger scale than even Riverdale, you know Beverly Hills 90210 was massive, so I think he is the best guy to talk to, and I’m really close with him.”
