KJ Apa co-stars with Maia Mitchell in The Last Summer, a romantic comedy about a group of teenagers who are spending one last summer together before they go off to college.
Both Apa and Mitchell are acting veterans, so forging a bond was n ot an arduous process. “I think the core ingredient has to be chemistry,” said Apa. “When you’re working a romcom, especially with the romantic stuff, you have to be working with someone you can have that chemistry with. I think we got really lucky. Maia is really easy to work with and we had great chemistry together.”
With the success of Riverdale and last year’s feature The Hate U Give, KJ Apa has cultivated a huge following (he has 14.7 million followers on Instagram). Click on the media bar to hear Apa discuss how he approaches social media.
