Will Lack of APs Hurt My Chances

I am a senior this year. I am interested in colleges like Duke and William and Mary. I have only taken four APs(lit and psychology this year, and lang and environmental science). I was supposed to take AP Gov or AP Gov Comparative, but because of COVID are classes of what we can take are limited. I want to major in video production/drama in college and fortunately I can be apart of advanced classes like Advanced Drama, Video II, humanities, and journalism (I am the editor this year). My question is will the lack of AP classes hurt my chances of getting into colleges like Duke? I play two varsity sports and have positions in drama club, journalism, and NHS, and stuco.

Also I have moved all my entire high school career and two/three of my high schools didn’t have APs to take freshman/sophomore year.
