The star continued: “Every time I worked with Archie he was the same – passionate, generous and pitch perfect, he was loved by everyone on set.
“I have no doubt he would have had a long and illustrious career and would have continued lighting up the lives of all those who encountered him.”
“The enthusiastic and talented boy I met all those years ago had grown into an equally charming young man, during lockdown he would take shopping and groceries to my parents house for them when they couldn’t leave the house, it’s testament to what a wonderful and kind person he was.
“The world has been robbed of a truly special soul. He will never be forgotten, I feel utterly devastated that he is gone but I also feel so blessed to have met him. Goodbye Archie,” he added.
