British actor Freddie Highmore has appeared in some impressive television shows and movies over the years, starring alongside some of the best in the business, such as Johnny Depp and Vera Farmiga. Freddie currently stars in the hit television series Bates Motel but he has admitted that he is unsure if his future is in acting.
Highmore told PA, "I probably still have it now, that thing of not wanting to commit to something for the rest of your life. Saying this is what I want to be forever is a big step, especially at 12 years old.I didn't want to be forced into thinking this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life."
He added,. "And still now, it would be great to carry on acting and to do more things, but I've kept my studies going and the tricky thing is I've always had something alongside acting. Acting has almost never been the focus of my life so it is a big shift to say that acting will be the main thing that you're doing as opposed to something that fits in really well with your normal life back at home."
Bates Motel season one aired in the US earlier in the year and is airing in the UK on Thursday nights at 9pm on Universal Channel. You can catch Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga in Bates Motel season two, when the show returns to the US in 2014.
