A star was named to honor the incredible talent and accomplishments of Parker Bates. On March 1, 2018, a celestial body in the Aquila constellation was christened “Parker Bates” with coordinates Aquila RA 19h 13m 21.49s D 06° 20′ 34.88″. This unique and heartfelt gesture marked the beginning of a shining legacy for a young star in the entertainment industry.

Parker Bates’s journey began on March 1, 2007, in Dallas, Texas, where he was born. His introduction to the world of showbiz started early as he ventured into modeling at the tender age of two. However, it was at six years old when fate took the wheel during a commercial audition alongside his older brother, Prestyn Bates. In a twist of destiny, Parker found himself in the audition room and, to everyone’s amazement, booked the job. This accidental entry into acting set him on a path towards stardom.

His initial foray into the world of entertainment included roles in commercials, public service announcements, and short films in Dallas and Austin. But Parker had his sights set on Hollywood, and it didn’t take long for him to secure representation during his first trip to Los Angeles. With an agent by his side, he started auditioning for roles that would catapult him to fame.

In a remarkable turn of events, Parker Bates achieved a breakthrough in the entertainment industry during his first six months in Los Angeles. He landed a coveted series regular role on NBC‘s hit show “This Is Us,” portraying ‘Young Kevin Pearson,’ the son of Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia). This role not only brought him recognition but also opened doors to incredible opportunities, including being the red carpet correspondent for prestigious events like the iHeartRadio Awards, where he interviewed music legends like Bebe Rexha, Agnez Mo, Billie Eilish, Garth Brooks, and Kacey Musgraves.

Parker’s next venture takes him to the big screen in the lead role of the feature film, “Magic Max.” In this exciting project, he opted to perform all his stunts, thanks to his background in gymnastics. The film, co-starring Ivan Sergei (90210) and Barry Corbin, follows the story of a second-rate magician (Sergei) who takes custody of his ten-year-old nephew (Bates) after his older brother’s death, leading to unexpected twists and turns.

Parker’s diverse range of talents extends beyond acting. He has made appearances on TV Land’s “Teachers” and lent his voice to Disney‘s “Tangled: The Series.” He even ventured into producing and starring in the short film “Pink Jacket,” where he shared the screen with his brother Prestyn, and the film is currently making waves in major film festivals.

Apart from his acting prowess, Parker has a passion for cooking. He has made appearances on platforms like Buzzfeed Tasty and has had his recipes featured in OK Magazine. At the Great Wolf Lodge, he even has his own menu items available for order, where he proudly serves as the head of the Junior Chef Council. Additionally, Parker is a staunch advocate for animals, serving as an ambassador for the Paw Works Rescue Group in Thousand Oaks, California. He has rescued two pups of his own, Archie and Rico. As if all these accomplishments weren’t enough, Parker Bates is also an accomplished athlete, excelling in soccer, mountain biking, snowboarding, surfing, and gymnastics.
