Freddie Highmore stars in "Bates Motel" on A&E as Norman Bates.

Whilst still a young child Freddie Highmore established himself as a leading talent in the film world. Previously Empire Award's Most Promising Newcomer, Highmore is a double SAG nominee and was winner of the Film Critics' award for the world's Best Young Actor two years running.

Having shot "Two Brothers," directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud, "Women Talking Dirty" with Helena Bonham Carter and "Five Children and It" with Ken Branagh, Highmore came to prominence as Peter in the Oscar-nominated "Finding Neverland." His co-star Kate Winslet described him as simply the best young actor she had ever seen. Johnny Depp was so impressed that he pushed for Highmore to star opposite him again in Tim Burton's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."

After appearing alongside Russell Crowe in Ridley Scott's "A Good Year," Highmore went on to play the title role in Luc Besson's "Arthur and the Invisibles" trilogy where he became fluent in French.

In America Highmore played the lead role in the Oscar-nominated "August Rush" and starred opposite himself as twins in "The Spiderwick Chronicles."

Whilst continuing with his education, Highmore voiced "Astro Boy," "The Golden Compass" and "Justin and the Knights of Valour" as well as shooting the title role in the apartheid era "Master Harold … and the Boys in South Africa."

Highmore was reunited with Helena Bonham Carter again shooting "Toast" and most recently returned to New York to team with Emma Roberts in "The Art of Getting By."

Achieving straight A's in every one of his academic exams, Highmore studies Arabic and Spanish at Cambridge University being made a senior scholar and receiving a first in both his first and second years.
