KJ Apa Kept His Injury a Secret
Our current obsession KJ Apa reveals he broke his hand while filming the upcoming season finale of The CW’ Riverdale but he actually didn’t tell anyone that it happened and he actually continued on shooting as if everything was normal.
“That was a gnarly day of shooting, I’ll tell you that much,” KJ dished out to TVLine about the scenes on the frozen lake, where he was pounding on ice really hard to get his costar Cheryl out of the water.
He continues, “I wasn’t really punching the ice, but I got a little bit too excited. I was punching a foam mat…[that was] sitting on the ice. It was cold, so I didn’t really feel it.”
The actor reveals he actually didn’t even realize his hand was actually broken, either: “It wasn’t until 20 minutes after that I realized I broke my hand. I didn’t tell anyone.”
Apa deserves some major props for not being 100% dedicated to the role and scene, but also for somehow not tipping off anyone that he was badly injured.
