Freddie Highmore Opens Up About Writing A Show For NBC

Freddie Highmore suits up sharply for the December 2014 issue of Bello mag.

The 22-year-old actor chatted about writing a television series for NBC, playing a teenager murderer and more. Check it:

On developing a new show with NBC: “Working on Bates Motel gave me the ambition of wanting to be part of the whole creative process. Playing Norman, for example, it’s great to be able to bring ideas to the script, but as a writer you get to work on a blank canvas. Kerry [Ehrin, showrunner] and I happened to be at the Critics’ Choice awards earlier this summer chatting away. I said, ‘wouldn’t it be interesting to have this thoroughly British character being shown trying to fit in to a very American environment?’ Kerry’s such a creative person and once we’d found a world that we wanted to explore, she and I found that working together, the central characters and their lives just flowed.”

On playing a teenage Norman Bates: “There’s a constant battle between the good and evil of Norman’s personality. It’s my first time doing an American television show, and it’s really given me the opportunity to develop a character without feeling rushed. In an hour-and-a-half movie, I don’t think it would be possible to depict the transition in the way in which we’ve attempted to in the series.”

On the new season of Bates Motel: “I haven’t read all the episodes yet, but I’m sure it’s not going to be all happy days for Norman and Mother. However well-intentioned he starts out, Norman’s going to have to continue down the path that will ultimately destroy all those he loves and end up condemning himself to be the psycho he will be forever remembered as. We know we can’t save him. We know we can’t help him. But I know I must try!”
