Personal Quote:

[on whether it is intimidating to be sexualized on screen as Archie] Not intimidating at all. When I do sexual scenes I'm always thinking that I have a lot of family back home watching this. When I read the pilot though, it wasn't difficult for me to see that's the direction they were taking. Every single episode I have my shirt off so inevitably, it's going to be gnarly. See more »

Trivia:

When KJ was a kid, he would go play his guitar out on street corners around his house in Auckland. (While he's out on location shooting movies/TV shows KJ has joined other people performing music on the streets by playing guitar with them.*). See more »
