  • Quotes

    • Freddie: (Talking about his character, Charlie, in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) He has a great family that surrounds him with love. That's what separates him from Willy. Willy has everything, but the one thing he really wants is the love of his family.

    • Freddie: (Talking about co-star, Johnny Depp) Every scene with him is so special. He's my idol. He's better than chocolate. I keep telling everyone that chocolate is fantastic and that he is fantastic, but he really is better than chocolate, so I have to think of a stronger word for him.

    • Freddie: (about Johnny Depp) He is the king.

    • Freddie: When I left the set of Finding Neverland, I was quite upset, because I thought I wouldn't see Johnny again. And Charlie wants to go back to the chocolate factory. We both got our wishes.

    • Freddie: 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 [the video game addict in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory]. I quite enjoy soccer games. I support the team called Arsenal. They just won the Cup.

    • Freddie Highmore: I'm not sure what I would like to do when I'm older. I might want to travel and see the world. That would be quite fun.
