Freddie Highmore is a married man. The protagonist of the hit series The Good Doctor She appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s show this past Monday, where she shared a bit about her marriage after the sympathetic host asked her about the wedding ring she was wearing.
The 29-year-old actor confirmed the assumptions. Of course, making it clear that he did not intend to declare his love or talk about his wife as explicitly as Tom Cruise did about Katie Holmes in the show de Oprah Winfrey back in 2005.
It’s funny, ever since I started wearing this ring, people have been asking me if I’m married so I thought it was time to clear it up. I’m not going to jump up and down on the couch and express my emotion that way. I know that’s how they like to do it here in America. But I am as happy as a Brit could be, I am married to an amazing woman now. So yes, I am very happy.
Highmore also shared that his wife is British, but declined to reveal her name. Although he did not speak about the ceremony or since when they have been married, the actor admitted that he is just getting used to married life and the correct way to refer to his now wife.
I still can’t get used to that of correct terminology and vocabulary. Saying ‘married man’ sounds very old to me, and ‘my wife’ sounds too possessive. So we don’t use those terms yet. We just show our rings and it’s like ‘Yeah look, make your own conclusions’.
Highmore is currently filming the new season of The Good Doctor in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, so he had to fly to Los Angeles from the Canadian city to do the interview and took the opportunity to tell why airports always make him nervous.
I had an accident in the customs area as a child that marked me forever. I went through the security line and for some reason they stopped me and started checking on me. Then when they got to my pocket area, a white powder started coming out of my pants. He knew he had done something wrong because he was smuggling something he shouldn’t have. So I turned to see my dad and said ‘I’m sorry. I know you told me not to, but I did it anyway. Excuse me.’ My dad, totally worried, comes over and says’ It was me. I gave it to him. ‘
However, after security agents investigated what Freddie had in his pockets, they discovered that it was soap, shampoo and a small bottle of talcum powder that had been stolen from the hotel where they stayed.
Since then I have never taken anything from the hotel bathroom again.
