Daron Yates was born in Munich. His father was from New Zealand and his mother is half German and half Armenian. Early on he was fascinated by the idea of becoming an actor and performed in countless school plays. At age 7 though, he discovered another passion, playing soccer. The sport defined most of his teenage years all the way to nearly becoming a pro. But after having earned his high school diploma and after having completed civil service he sold his car and headed out to New Zealand in order to learn about his ancestral roots. After having worked at a night club in Sydney, Australia for 6 months he went on to travel across New Zealand for an additional 6 months. During that time he lived with family, resumed playing soccer and even got a lucrative offer from a New Zealand soccer club. Daron declined and instead decided to return to Germany in order to pursue an acting career. Back in Munich, he took private acting classes and after having successfully auditioned at the renowned Theaterakademie August Everding from 2010 till 2014 he has been receiving professional acting training there and got his Diploma. While being enrolled as a student at Everding, he has already performed in several plays at Metropol Theater and at Prinzregententheater’s Akademietheater studio stage. Daron Yates is a live wire and beaming with energy; working with him means being infused with positive vibes. With his great talent and an alterable appearance, plus an excellent artistic education, paired with an ability to speak several foreign languages, Daron is definitely going to make a remarkable impression on the world of acting.
