At the age of 23 and with a slew of blockbuster movies under his belt, you could say Freddie Highmore is something of a Hollywood veteran.

Eighteen years in the business, the wavy-haired former child actor has played opposite some of the biggest names in acting, from Kate Winslet and Helena Bonham Carter to Dustin Ho~ man, Guy Pearce and Johnny Depp, in films as diverse as Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, Finding Neverland and most recently the hit TV series Bates Motel, as the formidable Norman Bates.

With this impressive body of work, we’d expected the young British actor to arrive on set masked behind oversized sunglasses and an obscenely large entourage, with an even bigger ego in tow. But when Freddie appears on set (on time, might we add) he’s a far stretch from what you’d imagine a boy with his career to be like.

Clad in a baggy jumper and skinny black jeans, he is the epitome of the boy next door. Quietly sweet-looking and bookish – you could walk past him in the street without casting a second look.

But that is all about to change. Today is the day Mr Highmore can shake his child actor rep. Today, Freddie will become a cover star pin-up.

About Attitude

The new issue feature former child star turned Bates Motel psycho, Freddie Highmore – who is all grown up in our exclusive shoot and interview. We also have a feature looking at why gay men love horror movies so much. On the eve of the UK general election we look back at party voting records and ask can we really trust the Tories? And as the Irish marriage referendum approaches, we look at the country’s road to equality, and how Colin Farrell is supporting his gay brother. In other voting matters, we ask experts if the UK can ever hope to win the Eurovision again. We have interviews with pop prince Will Young, American TV guru Andy Cohen, music mogul Pete Waterman, and that absolute babe Alexandra Burke. We also give you the run down on all the best prides and festivals of the summer.
