The award-winning medical drama "Good Doctor" is taking the world by storm and fans simply adore Freddie High Highmore's acting. 

He portrays the role of Dr. Shaun Murphy, a surgeon with autism and savant syndrome trying to adjust at his new place of employment. 

However, it's not Highmore's first acting credit, and many fans were struggling to place the actor. Read more on our Twitter account, @amomama_usa. 

The 26-year-old actor had 35 film credits to his name and landed his first role at the age of seven in "Walking on the Moon and "Women Talking Dirty."

Many fans were aware of his portrayal of Peter Llewelyn Davies, but it was his involvement in another film a year later that simply floored fans. 

In 2005, Highmore was cast as Charlie Bucket in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." It was ecstatic when he landed the role because he got the opportunity to work with Depp again.

Since then, he appeared as Arthur in "Arthur and the Invisibles," as the voice of Pantalaimon in "The Golden Compass" and as Jared Grace in "The Spiderwick Chronicles."

Apart from "Good Doctor," he also received critical acclaim for his portrayal of Norman Bates in the 2013 series "Bates Motel." 

The series ran for five seasons, and Highmore appeared as the lead character in fifty episodes. The last episode aired back in April. 

ABC has since announced that "Good Doctor" was renewed for a second season, set to premiere next year. 

Fans of Highmore can also look forward to his other projects. He will lend his voice to "Dragon Rider," which is currently in production and will be released in 2019.
