No Business like Show Business

Freddie was pretty much born to be an actor. His mother is Sue Latimer, a talent agent who represents Daniel Radcliffe, and Freddie's dad, Edward, is also an actor. Freddie has a younger brother named Albert and the Highmore family lives in Hampstead, a suburb of North London, England where the boys go to Highgate School.

Action!

Freddie began acting at the age of two but his big break came in 2004 when he got a lot of attention and numerous awards for playing Peter in Finding Neverland. Then, in 2005, he starred alongside Johnny Depp again, this time in the remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, where he played Charlie Bucket. He followed that hit flick with a lead role in Arthur and the Invisibles.

Best Birthday Ever!

Recently, Freddie starred in August Rush as a musical prodigy trying to find his parents, and then played twins, Simon and Jared Grace in The Spiderwick Chronicles. Based on the popular children's books, The Spiderwick Chronicles is about three siblings who find a field guide into a world of fairies, magic, and evil trolls and has been a box office success since its release on Valentine's Day, which is also Freddie's birthday. Very few young actors are working harder than Freddie Highmore and you're sure to see much more out of this talented young star.

Freddie Says...

"I try to stay a normal boy as much as possible. I play soccer on the weekend with my friend. I play video games, but not as much as Mike Teavee. I quite enjoy soccer games. I support the team called Arsenal. They just won the Cup."Related Stories:
