His mother is a talent agent. One of her clients is Imelda Staunton.
Finding Neverland director Marc Forster decided to schedule one of Highmore's toughest scenes (where he tears up a book and demolishes a playhouse) on his second day of filming, deliberately so other cast members could see the child act and change their attitude towards working with him.
During the shooting of Finding Neverland, Freddie's favorite action was the demolition of the playhouse.
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.
