Riverdale Star KJ Apa Reveals Cast's Bizarre Preparation For Kissing Scenes

Riverdale Star KJ Apa Reveals Cast's Bizarre Preparation For Kissing Scenes

In an attempt to combat the spread of germs during filming, Riverdale star KJ Apa has revealed that the cast are swilling their mouths out before filming any smooching scenes.

The coronavirus pandemic brought filming for TV shows and movies to a screeching halt earlier this year, and as actors and crew get ready to return to studios to pick up where they left off, they're also having to get used to a 'new normal'.

And, in the case of stars of hit Netflix drama Riverdale this includes a quick swill of mouthwash before they shoot any kissing scenes.

Yup, while other shows have been using Zoom to do table reads, or in more extreme cases even isolating with other cast members so they're remain in the same 'social bubble', Apa has shown the new measures implemented on set to keep things health and safety friendly.

Posting on Instagram, he wrote: "Our new normal is washing our mouths before every take of a make-out scene..."

Alongside this was a clip of Apa and cast mate Camila Mendes taking swigs from little paper cups, before handing them to a glove-wearing crew member.

They swill for around 30 seconds before spitting out the mouthwash into little plastic bags. Lovely.

Fair point, mate, yeah.

As cast and crew return, production teams are working hard to ensure the safety of staff members, implementing social distancing measures.

Over on this side of the pond, BBC's Line of Duty has resumed filming with creator Jed Mercurio sharing a snap of Martin Compston - better known as DS Steve Arnott to fans - wearing a mask on set.

The BBC said the production team for the show will adhere to 'comprehensive protocols to ensure that the new series is produced in a safe and responsible manner', working alongside independent health and safety consultants, in full consultation with industry partners, and in accordance with all current government guidelines on Covid-19.
