Archie Heaton: Stranger Things Actor Charlie Heaton’s Mysterious Son

As the son of Charlie Heaton and Akiko Matsuura, Archie Heaton lives a life away from the public gaze. As he grows up, it will be interesting to see the paths he chooses, whether in the footsteps of his parents or towards a different journey. For now, Archie is an ordinary young boy living in London.

Behind ‘Stranger Things,’ Charlie Heaton has a mysterious background about his family. It’s the story of Archie Heaton, the son of Heaton and Japanese drummer Akiko Matsuura. Let’s learn more about the life of Archie, whose existence left fans in shock when it first emerged.

His Early Life and Family Background

Archie Heaton was born in England on May 19, 2014, making him 9 years old as of today. He inherits a blend of cultures from his Caucasian father and Japanese mother. Residing in London with his mother, Matsuura, Archie is raised away from the Hollywood spotlight.

Charlie Heaton, who embarked on his acting journey at 16, became a father at the age of 20. Before his rise to fame in ‘Stranger Things’ as Jonathan Byers, Heaton was touring with his band, Comanechi, where he met and fell in love with bandmate Matsuura. The two have an age gap of 14 years.

However, their romantic relationship ended shortly after Archie’s birth. When his fatherhood became known, fans started speculating about Charlie’s readiness for fatherhood due to his young age when Archie was born.

Post his relationship with Matsuura, Heaton began dating his ‘Stranger Things’ co-star Natalia Dyer in 2016. While the couple’s relationship has been a subject of media interest, their interaction with Archie remains private. Meanwhile, Heaton balances his time between his career in the US and his fatherly duties in London.

Who is Archie’s Mother, Akiko Matsuura?

Akiko Matsuura is known in the music circles as Keex. She is a Japanese drummer and musician. Apart from being the drummer and backing vocalist of The Big Pink, an English electronic rock band, Matsuura’s musical journey has seen her playing in various bands, including Comanechi.

Despite her career in music, Matsuura keeps her life private, especially regarding her relationship with Archie.

Archie’s Personal Life

While details about Archie’s daily life are sparse, it’s known that he attends a local elementary school in London. Although celebrity children often find themselves surrounded by media attention, he lives a life of normalcy and privacy. His parents’ decision to keep him away from the public eye allows Archie a childhood that is relatively unaffected by fame.
