Finding Neverland would have been an entirely different movie, and The Good Doctor would just be “The Good.” So naturally, we want to know what Freddie’s net worth is.

Freddie’s career took off in 2004 with Finding Neverland, followed by 2005’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, both of which he starred opposite Johnny Depp. He went on to play major film roles throughout his childhood, but by 2011, his young adult years took over and forced him into different types of characters. Freddie attended Emmanuel College at Cambridge, enrolled in the London School of Economics during his 2011 summer break, and briefly considered becoming a lawyer instead of an actor.

Even still, Freddie’s career as an adult is marked primarily by his television roles in Bates Motel and The Good Doctor. In The Good Doctor, Freddie plays Dr. Shaun Murphy, an autistic savant, which garnered him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Drama Series.

In August 2018, Freddie formed a Sony-aligned production company called Alfresco Pictures, which creates projects "that have a broader point or message behind them, that try and spark conversations that aren’t being had, or give a microphone to voices and experiences that haven’t been heard from before."

In 2021, Freddie revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that he got married, although he keeps his wife’s identity close to his chest. Since he’s been in the limelight for so long, it’s no surprise that Freddie tries to keep his private life as private as possible. It’s rare for child actors to transition seamlessly into a full-time acting career as an adult, so we have to give Freddie props for making it work.

New episodes of The Good Doctor air Mondays at 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
