"I think Freddie is pure magic," Neverland producer Richard Gladstein told Lisa Hirsch of Variety.
From then on the plucky lad with the big, brown eyes and adorably large ears became a familiar face to Brits who caught him in small parts on television and in film.Peter, in particular, has been hard hit and is becoming more and more emotionally withdrawn.During their outings in the park, Barrie begins to weave elaborate stories for the boys, eventually creating an imaginary place called Neverland where children never grow up.As a result, on his second day of filming Forster purposefully shot a pivotal scene where an emotionally tortured Peter tears up a book and demolishes a playhouse.
Highmore acted with such maturity and gut-wrenching realism that afterward no one questioned his abilities.His first real break came in 2004 when he was cast in the family drama Two Brothers, the story of two tiger cubs separated at birth.
