now leaving Riverdalenext stop… New Zealand? KJ Apa revealed that he plans to visit his house later this year, and the actor may need to convince his partner clear berry to make your vacation a little more permanent.
“I’ll be back [to New Zealand]. Yes, 100%. I’m going back this year,” said Apa, 24, us weekly exclusively in May while on the CW Upfronts red carpet in New York City.
The network revealed that Riverdale will come to an end next year after season 7 next year, and Apa said he has no plans to stay in Vancouver once filming wraps. It’s important to the New Zealand star that her 9-month-old son Sasha gets a chance to see his paternal relatives. (He shares his baby with Berry, 28).
“I want my son to meet his family there,” Apá explained. U.S. “I have to convince my girl to think about moving there. Maybe. She is very far from everywhere, but I want to go back for sure.”
the I still believe star said her trip home this year will be her first in three years. In addition to her filming schedule for the teen drama, New Zealand’s strict border restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic have also made travel difficult.
While he’s happy to spend some time where he grew up, Apa knows it won’t be easy saying he’s letting Archie Andrews go. He began playing the comic book character in 2016 and will take his final bow in 2023.
“I think some of us saw it coming,” he said after the announcement that the series would come to an end, noting that the cast had no say in the decision. “I can’t speak for anyone else, but I will be very sad to say goodbye to Archie, to Riverdaleto our sets, to our team.”
Apa continued, “It’s exciting and it’s sad, you know, because we’ve made so many memories on this show. I have a son now. I’ve been through a lot in the last six years and I know everyone else has. Yes, a lot of growing in the last six years”.
The young dad added that he considers himself “very lucky” to have a job as Riverdale which allows you to spend a lot of time with your baby. “We don’t work every day, all day, all week. The crew does, but I have days off here and there,” she said. “I’m lucky to have time to spend with my family.”
There’s one thing you won’t miss from the long-running TV show: her iconic red locks. “I’m not going to miss red hair,” she said. U.S with a laugh “I’m not going to miss dying my hair every week, bleaching my hair.”
Riverdale season 6 airs Sundays on The CW at 8 pm ET. The final season will premiere in 2023.
