Some may know Freddie Highmore as Charlie from “Charlie and the Chocolate Factor,” Norman from “Bates Motel” or as Dr. Shaun Murphy from his current ABC series “The Good Doctor,” but everyone will know him a lot better after checking out these fun facts.

After reading all of these interesting tidbits about Highmore, it’ll almost be like you two are best friends. Almost.

British: Though he played an American in his last major TV role on “Bates Motel,” and currently plays one on “The Good Doctor,” Highmore was actually born in London. He was born on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, in 1992.

Show Business Family: Highmore isn’t the only one in his family in show business. His mom, Sue Latimer, is actually a talent agent with clients like Daniel Radcliffe, while his dad, Edward Highmore, is an actor.

Dislikes Social Media: The actor steers clear of all social media platforms, despite having a large fanbase after a few successful movies and shows.

“I guess I stayed off the social media and stuff like that,” he told Standard. “Not that you don’t appreciate people who like the work that you’ve been doing and the things that you’re in. I just feel like it’s always helped me maintain a clear difference between your private life at home and then when you’re working and that side of things.

“I don’t have any of those, the Twitter or anything,” he said. “Maybe I should just get some secret account somewhere and keep up to date with everything.”

Though he doesn’t participate in social media, he does have official verified accounts as placeholders should he choose to join in on the fun.

Producer/Writer/Director: Besides acting, he also has an interest in what goes on behind the camera. The star wrote a couple episodes for “Bates Motel” and directed an episode of the series, as well. Now, along with starring in “The Good Doctor,” he’s also a producer on the new ABC drama.

Multilingual: He’s been acting since he was six years old, but the now 25-year-old took a little bit of a break from it to study both Arabic and Spanish at the University of Cambridge. He became quite good at both languages but admits that he hasn’t practiced much lately, and he’s lost some of his language skills.

Johnny Depp’s Co-Star (Twice!): After landing his 2004 role in “Finding Neverland” with Johnny Depp, Highmore was recommended by the actor to star with him in 2005’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”

Catch Highmore on “The Good Doctor” when it airs on ABC on Mondays at 10 p.m. EST.
