KJ Apa, a.k.a. our beloved Archie Andrews from Riverdale, is so freakin’ adorable. It’s no secret that the actor is best friends IRL with his co-star Cole Sprouse and we live for spotting pics of the besties on social. While we wait for Apa to stop by Toronto on June 18 for the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards, here are 11 times the 20-year-old actor was the absolute cutest.
