KJ Apa poses in a see-through shirt for a new feature in WWD.

The 22-year-old Riverdale actor opens up about doing a faith-based movie like I Still Believe, which you can currently watch on demand.

On his career trajectory: “Every time I try and plan my career out, something comes by that completely throws me off, like a faith-based movie. Never did I ever, one, want to do a faith-based movie or two, imagine myself doing one. But that made me realize that it’s not about that. It’s about what inspires you. I hope that I can keep having opportunities to do work on projects that I’m inspired by. I feel like, at the end of the day, if you’re doing that, then you’re winning in life.”

On having to sing in I Still Believe: “The music was also one of the things that had me second guessing myself. I don’t see myself as a singer. Even still I don’t. I was scared to sing. But I was like, ‘F–k it. I’m just going to do it. I’m going to give it a go.’”

On being in the spotlight: “It was [something I saw for myself], which is weird. Not to be famous, but I always knew as a kid that I wasn’t going to be in New Zealand, that I was going to leave at an early age, and that I wasn’t going to do what everyone else was doing.”
