We know that actors often go to extreme lengths for their roles, whether it’s losing weight, gaining muscle, or learning a new skill. However, K.J. Apa (aka Archie) from Riverdale has revealed that he broke his hand while filming the show’s Season 1 finale, and we’re pretty sure that’s taking things to extremes.

Now, if you’re anything like us then you’ll have become fully obsessed with Riverdale, the new CW show based on the Archie comics. We were pretty gripped by the story of who killed Jason Blossom, and we’re practically counting down the days until Season 2 begins (which, seriously, can’t come fast enough).

One thing that’s been bugging us, however, is the question of how K.J. Apa, who plays Archie Andrews in the show, broke his hand. The actor tweeted back in April that he’d caused himself injury while filming the season finale, and has been a bit cagey ever since.

In the season finale of Riverdale we saw the gang attempt to stop Cheryl Blossom from hurting herself  in Sweetwater River. After falling through the ice, Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead rush to her aid, with Archie ultimately punching through the ice to save her. It’s a pretty intense scene, and you can feel the tension.
