Kiwi actor KJ Apa is taking over US TV screens, and now it seems he's taking over your Instagram feed as well.

The Riverdale star has just overtaken Lorde as New Zealand's biggest Instagram star, hitting 6.1 million followers

Lorde has 6 million followers. 

Ex-Shortland Street heartthrob Apa now plays Archie Andrews on the CW teen drama series, which airs on Netflix in New Zealand.

There's no doubt both Kiwi exports are doing us proud: Riverdale currently in its second season, rating 87 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, while Lorde is embarking on the North American leg of her Melodrama Tour.
