The Hate U Give

K.J. Apa, the actor who plays Archie Andrews in the CW Riverdale series, has just signed for the movie The Hate U Give, adaptation of the book of the same name by Angie Thomas. Apa replaces Kian Lawley, the interpreter and ‘YouTuber’, 22, who was asked in February after a book T2 Trainspotting about him saying racist insults came to light. The film finished filming in November, but 20th Century Fox made the decision to hire a new actor and re-record the scenes that were necessary.

In addition to the role that has catapulted him to fame, Apa had a small participation in Your Best Friend and will appear in the independent romantic comedy The Last Summer by William Bindley. The Hate U Give revolves around the young Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg, Powerful Minds),  Friend Request whose life oscillates between the black and poor neighborhood in which she lives and the exclusive white majority school in which she studies. His life changes forever when he witnesses the murder of Khalil, his childhood best friend, by the police. Apa will play Chris, the white boyfriend of the protagonist of the story.

After his dismissal, as recorded by Digital Spy, Kian Lawley issued a statement that read: “Words have power and can cause harm, I am responsible for mine and I am sorry […] I respect Fox’s decision to change the actor for this role of The Hate U Give because it is an important story and [because] it Max Steel would not be appropriate for me to be involved taking into account my past actions, I understand the consequences and I have matured and learned since then. from now on, I intend to use my voice for a positive change “. Fox is also behind Powerful Minds, adaptation of the saga by Alexandra Bracken, which opens in Spain on September 14.
