Freddie Highmore (Charlie Bucket)

IMDB / Enstarz

Freddy Highmore had big shoes to fill as the new Charlie. He was already a known child actor, having performed in Finding Neverland.

The original film is one of the most beloved in the history of cinema. So people were upset by a lot of the creative decisions that went into the remake. Even the color of the new Charlie's hair was an item of hot debate.

In a bit of a switch, Highmore also starred in Psycho, Bates Motel, a television prequel to Psycho. He is a celebrated actor.
