KJ Apa was 'taking the piss' when he was on Shortland Street

"I was taking the piss on Shortland Street"

NZ's very own KJ Apa caught up with Jay-Jay, Dom and Randell this morning for chat.

During the interview, he revealed how he went from little ol' Shorty Street to the big time on Netflix's Riverdale.

He said that he "didn't really understand what acting was" while he was on Shortland Street, and that he was "taking the piss."

KJ went on to say if he could go back now, he would have taken his role on Shorty a bit more seriously.
