Freddie highmore dating history
In 2005 Highmore starred in yet another page-to-screen vehicle— Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, based on the Roald Dahl (1916–1990) story.Another rising young star named Liam Aiken, who is just two years older than Highmore, also gave life to a literary character when he costarred in the 2004 screen adaptation of Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events, an enormously popular contemporary children's book written by Daniel Handler (1970–)."I think Freddie is pure magic," Neverland producer Richard Gladstein told Lisa Hirsch of Variety."He was the first actor that read for Marc and I, and he defined the character.
Although Forster had complete confidence in his young star, some of the Neverland cast had their doubts.Inspired by the innocence and wonder of his young friends, Barrie puts pen to paper and creates the story of Peter Pan.Forster nabbed Oscar-nominated actors Johnny Depp (1963–) and Kate Winslet (1976–) to play Barrie and Sylvia Davies, but he had a harder time casting the roles of the young Davies brothers—that is, until it was time to cast Peter and in walked Freddie Highmore.In fact, some of his heartiest congratulations came directly from his costars.
As Winslet (best known for her starring role in the film Titanic ) commented to Jenelle Riley of Back Stage, " [Freddie] is quite something else.I would literally get hairs up on the back of my neck watching this kid act." Audiences and critics agreed.
