Who is Zane Holtz? The star has arrived in Riverdale, so let’s take a moment to consider his age, Instagram, roles and wife.

There were many notable shows to emerge from the 2010s, gaining popularity season after season.

While such fond favourites as Game of Thrones and Mr. Robot wrapped up ahead of the 2020s, there are still a number of beloved titles we’re continuing to tune into in 2021. Of course, one of those is Riverdale.

Developed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and based on the characters of Archie Comics, the teen-drama series landed in 2017 and returned for its fifth season on Wednesday, January 20th 2021.

Familiar faces are back, but some may not be quite so acquainted with Zane Holtz…

Zane Holtz stars in Riverdale

The Canadian actor and model made his Riverdale debut as K.O. Kelly in ‘Chapter Seventy-Seven: Climax’.

However, he actually played K.O Kelly throughout season 1 of Katy Keene, the musical comedy-drama spinoff of Riverdale which released in 2020. So, the character won’t be a stranger to all.

When asked by Assignment X about playing the love interest rather than the lead in Katy Keene, Zane said: “I had seen Riverdale, and I thought that it was a great show, and I wanted to work with a good team, and so the ensemble nature of it didn’t really bother me… I was just looking to do something that I thought, again, I could do well, and that could potentially perform well. And I think this show has that…”

Fans of his character will be glad to see him in Riverdale, as Katy Keene was actually cancelled after one season.

Getting to know Zane, he has four children and is married to Chelsea Pagnini. The pair tied the knot back in 2014.

Now, let’s consider where audiences may have seen him before.
