THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES

Fifteen-year-old FREDDIE HIGHMORE (SIMON/JARED) has worked with some of the industry's most celebrated directors and has amassed an enviable body of work in his short but illustrious career.

Most recently, Highmore was seen in the title role in Tim Burton's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” opposite Johnny Depp. The film was his second with Depp, previously teaming in Marc Forster's highly acclaimed "Finding Neverland,” costarring Kate Winslet, Dustin Hoffman and Julie Christie. The Oscar®-nominated film was revered worldwide and Highmore not only swept the board for young performers' awards, but was also double-nominated for SAG Awards and, in the UK, won the Empire Award for Best Newcomer.

"Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” saw Highmore gain the distinction of being voted Best Young Actor by the Broadcast Film Critics for the second year in a row and also reunited him with Helena Bonham Carter as his screen mother, a role she first performed many years previously in "Women Talking Dirty.”

In 2005, Highmore filmed Ridley Scott's "A Good Year” opposite Russell Crowe, Albert Finney and Marion Cotillard. The same year, he also starred in Luc Besson's "Arthur and the Invisibles” with Mia Farrow, also filmed in France. Last year, Highmore took on the title role in his first American picture, shooting "August Rush” in New York with Robin Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Keri Russell and Terrence Howard.

Previously, Highmore filmed Jean-Jacques Annaud's "Two Brothers” in Cambodia and appeared opposite Kenneth Branagh in "Five Children and It.” Highmore began his acting career with performances in a number of television productions including, in the U.K., the BBC film "Happy Birthday Shakespeare” and ITV's miniseries "I Saw You,” as well as TNT's "The Mists of Avalon” in the U.S.
