What a great idea for the lovers of “Psycho”: I wonder how Norman Bates grew up?
How did he end up running the Bates Motel along that lonely highway. How was the relationship with his mother to end up the way we see in Hitchcock’s masterpiece?
All this and more is answered in a very engaging new tv series interpreted by Vera Farmiga as Mrs Bate and Freddie Highmore in the part of 17 year old Norman Bates.
Now 21, the English actor who portrayed so sweetly Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp is called to discover new avenues of acting: the disturbed mind.
Freddie is extraordinary.
