Quotes of Freddie Highmore

#Quote
1[on celebrity] As long as you don't stand on the corner and wave your arms about, people don't notice you too much.
2Scary is good. Kids like going to a movie and being really scared rather than fake scared.
3[Talking about his dressing room demands] Because I'm a spoiled little brat, I absolutely always insist on a table and chair and lighting. This February I'm even going to demand heating.
4It's nice to pick up the guitar now and again and play back the songs and be reminded of the film -- but if you gave me any other songs to play, I wouldn't be very good at them.
5[Talking about being treated like an adult] That was really important for me, although I think I am a bit more mature than some kids my age because I've spent more time with adults. And I haven't grown my hair over my eyes or anything.
6I try and stay a normal kid as much as possible. At the weekend I play soccer with my friends.
7I 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 (2005)]. I quite enjoy soccer games. I support the team called Arsenal. They just won the [English Football Association] Cup.
8I'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.
9Well, you just sort of think about what the character's thinking, and then you're in the character.
10When I left the set of Finding Neverland (2004), 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.
