Archie Yates

Showtime Performing Arts student Archie Yates aged 10, hugged goodbye to his Showtime friends as he begins filming Disney’s Home Alone in Montreal.  Archie has the leading role as “Kevin”, first made famous by Maculay Calkin.

Students of the weekend performing arts school are often asked to audition for TV adverts, stage performances and television programmes.  Archie had several TV commercials under his belt so he isn’t new to the camera. Each Sunday, Archie worked hard with Showtime tutors to prepare for the role of Yorkie in JOJO Rabbit, which starred Scarlett Johansson and is at cinemas now.

His success in this role led to auditions with Fox and Disney to star in the new Home Alone movie.

In 2018 Cody played at the Barbican with the Royal Shakespeare Company in “I Claudius” and in 2019 played John in Peter Pan at EM Foster Theatre, Tonbridge
