  1. I’ve watched almost every movie this guy was in since he was a kid…I was also a kid. My favorite is A tale of unfortunate events

  2. My country is safe from the virus cause it didn't reach here yet but still sad for people who are suffering 🙁

  3. I think Freddie's eyes are one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen in my life. He's a gorgeous person, inside and out. I love him so much, I'll never stop doing it. 💖

  4. He should’ve been cast as Peter Parker, but I mean the mcu is to childish for him, he’d be a better Peter in the Rami universe

  5. Regular people: I know Freddie because of The Good Doctor

    Me and intellectual: I know Freddie because of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

  6. I don't know but Freddie look much younger when he plays Shaun and this is the first time I see him with soft beard

  7. Finding Neverland : who is that?

    Charlie and the chocolate factory : he is okk

    The spiderwick chronicles : he is very good at acting

    Bates motel : he is sooo cute ( after a while GET THE HELL AWAY FROM MY MIND )

    The good doctor : oooooo my gooddddd, ACTING ✔,CUTENESS ✔,ACCENT ✔,PERFECTNESS✔✔✔✔✔
