KJ Apa is a big deal atm. 

The Kiwi hunk has stirred up a huge following from his role as Archie in Riverdale. 

But because he's a new star there are a few things that we were yet to know about the 19-year-old. 

Like the fact that KJ Apa isn't even his real name!

KJ was born Keneti James Fitzgerald, but he's been known by his nickname since he was a child.

Also another fun fact for you all is that his dad is a Chief of a village!

His father Keneti, who he's named after, is a Matai (chief) of his village in Samoa.
