Freddie Highmore Opens Up About Being a Golden Globe Nominee!

Freddie Highmore is on the cover of Rogue Magazine‘s Winter Issue, out on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 25-year-old The Good Doctor actor had to say:

On his Golden Globe nomination: “I feel very lucky. I don’t think anyone could ever have an expectation of something as great as that. You’d be kind of mad if you did.”

On his process of picking parts: “I always feel either an instant connection or not with a character and something comes to life when you read a script initially. I feel, in terms of a process, that if it’s something that feels it could fit, it’s a voice I’ll be hearing in my head from the very beginning. You hear that voice a little bit, and that cadence, and you start to be intrigued by the nuances in a particular character.”

On playing Norman Bates in Bates Motel: “It was so rare in television, knowing where the character is going to end up from the moment you start filming…there was something intriguing about the careful plotting of the descent from someone we had hoped for and dreamed for at the beginning of the show into someone we know he must become,” he says. “But always giving the audience this false sense of hope that things may turn out OK, that the inevitable tragedy somehow wouldn’t have to happen.”

    Don’t Get me Wrong I love him On Bates Motel he’s amazing…But on Good Doctor I really can’t even watch it, It’s so awkward I am sure it’s his character but he seems like he act at all. It’s embrassing really.
