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.”

Freddie Highmore Joins His 'Good Doctor' Co-Stars at PaleyFest

Freddie Highmore opened up about his The Good Doctor character, Dr. Shaun Murphy, at 2018 PaleyFest!

The 26-year-old Bates Motel actor stepped out for The Paley Center For Media’s event held at Dolby Theatre on Thursday (March 22) in Hollywood.

He was joined by his co-stars Nicholas Gonzalez, Antonia Thomas, Richard Schiff, Hill Harper, Tamlyn Tomita, and executive producer Daniel Dae Kim.

“Shaun is never going to be able, nor should we try to make him, represent everyone on the spectrum,” Freddie told the crowd about his character, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, who is recruited into the surgical unit of a prestigious hospital.

“In order to make him authentic, it was remaining true to the realities of autism, but at the same time constructing Shaun in his own right,” Freddie added. “It was finding out about his hopes and desires and his sense of humor and the people he connects [with] that may not, necessarily, have anything to do with the fact that he has autism. Yes, of course, we hope the show brings awareness to some extent. But it’s also about following Shaun on his individual journey.”

Earlier this month, it was announced that The Good Doctor has officially been renewed for season two on ABC.

FYI: Antonia is wearing Vince Camuto shoes.
