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.

Daniel Dae Kim to Replace Ed Skrein in 'Hellboy' Reboot Following Whitewashing Controversy

Daniel Dae Kim is in talks to join the upcoming Hellboy reboot in the role of Major Ben Daimio after Ed Skrein dropped out of the project amid a whitewashing controversy.

Skrein decided to leave the film after there was an outcry over a white actor playing an Asian-American character.

In the Hellboy comics, the character is Japanese-American and described as a “rugged military member of the bureau for paranormal research and defense who, due to a supernatural encounter, can turn into a jaguar when angered or in pain,” according to THR.

Daniel recently quit his role on the television series Hawaii Five-0 due to a salary dispute with CBS.

Freddie Highmore's 'The Good Doctor' Character Is Not A Representative of Autism

Freddie Highmore sits on a panel for his new show The Good Doctor at the 2017 Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour held at the Beverly Hilton on Sunday (August 6) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 25-year-old actor was joined at the panel by his co-stars Hill Harper, Nicholas Gonzalez, Richard Schiff, and Antonia Thomas, along with executive producers Daniel Dae Kim and David Shore.

While at the panel, David revealed that the show is not a representative of Autism, which the main character is diagnosed with.

“We saw a lot of doctors, we consulted with people, we’ve got people on the spectrum who we’re working with,” he said, via Deadline. “But he is a specific character, he’s not there to represent autism, he’s there to represent Dr. Shaun Murphy.”

FYI: Freddie is wearing an Original Penguin shirt.
