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.

'The Good Doctor' Renewed for Season 2

The Good Doctor is officially coming back for a second season!

The announcement was made on the show’s social media pages.

If you don’t know, the series stars Freddie Highmore (Bates Motel) as Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, relocates from a quiet country life to join the prestigious St. Bonaventure hospital’s surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, his only advocate, Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff), challenges the skepticism and prejudices of the hospital’s board and staff when he brings him in to join the team. Shaun will need to work harder than he ever has before, as he navigates his new environment and relationships to prove to his colleagues that his extraordinary medical gifts will save lives.

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.”
