Archie Lawes is an English actor who voiced Alex Hammond in The Getaway. He got the role because his father, Symond Lawes, was playing the role of Sparky in the game. The director wanted to use another voice instead of Joe Barnes, so he picked Archie to voice the character. Archie only provided a voice however and didn't act out any of the scenes because Joe had already done so. Other than The Getaway he has only one other credited acting role which was when he provided a voice for the game, EyeToy: Play, which was also created by Sony.
