Freddie Highmore Says His 'Good Doctor' Character Is 'Probably A Better Person Than' Him

Freddie Highmore is dapper in a suit while hitting the carpet at the For Your Consideration Event for his hit ABC show The Good Doctor held at Sony Pictures Studios on Tuesday (May 22) in Culver City, Calif.

The 26-year-old actor was joined at the event by his co-stars Antonia Thomas, Nicholas Gonzalez, Sheila Kelley, Tamlyn Tomita, Richard Schiff and executive producer Erin Gunn.

Freddie opened up about how his character, Dr. Shaun Murphy, has influenced his own life: “Shaun is probably a better person than me. He’s less cynical — my British cynicism has certainly lessened.”

“That’s hopefully the point of the show,” Freddie continued (via Deadline). “We learn from Shaun as he learns from the codes of the environment he is in. Hopefully, all of us as an audience and like the other characters on the show are learning from Shaun.”
