One of the many interesting things about the world is how siblings who share the same DNA record different results at the same activity, and there is no place where that fact is better outlined than in the acting industry where siblings share a varying and often vast difference of success in the profession. One of the many examples abundant in the acting industry is Freddie Highmore and his brother, Bertie Highmore.
Both of them, having been born to parents who are deeply involved in the entertainment industry, took an early stab at creating a career for themselves in the industry as actors. But while Bertie’s brother, Freddie has gone on to star in several films and television shows, establishing himself as a recognizable name in the industry, Bertie hasn’t had as much success.
We cover more about this below and other details worth learning about Bertie Highmore. Read on.
Bertie Highmore Biography, Age
Famous for being the brother of a famous actor, Bertie Highmore has had a relationship with the entertainment industry that has lasted his entire life. From his parents to his brother to his own short stint as an actor, his life journey has been a marriage of his own personal endeavors and an unending relationship with the entertainment industry.
He was born on the 8th of February 1995 as Albert Samuel Highmore to his parents in London, England. His older brother, Freddie was born just three years before him on the 14th of February 1992. Not much is known about his childhood background but he was raised to follow in the path of his parents as personalities in the entertainment industry, one that culminated in an appearance in a film in 1999.
Since Bertie decided against a career in the entertainment industry, not much is known about him but a closer internet search suggests that he has a career in the finance industry, having attended The London School of Economics and Political Science following his high school graduation from Highgate School. Our findings revealed that he is working as an investment analyst for Blenheim Chalcot after spending time at Goldman Sachs and Susquehanna International Group.
Movies and TV Shows
When you are born to one of English’s most popular actors, and your mother is a talent agent, it is believed that the road is relatively paved for a career in the acting industry. While that has been true so far for his brother, Freddie, who has appeared in over 30 films and television shows since he made his debut with credits in films like Tour de Pharmacy, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Finding Neverland and shows like The Good Doctor and Bates Motel, and has also garnered several awards and nominations to his name, Bertie Highmore has only got credit in one – Women Talking Dirty.
One would have expected Bertie Highmore to go on and star in plenty more films and TV shows, having starred alongside the iconic Helena Bonham Carter in the 1999 film, but Bertie, unlike his brother, decided against a career as an actor and so far, has just a solitary film credit to his name.
Bertie Highmore’s Net Worth
His brother, Freddie Highmore is estimated to be worth around $4 million, but the net worth of Bertie Highmore is unknown. Online results suggest he is working in the finance sector, and there is a strong chance that Bertie might very well be sharing the millionaire status with his brother, with the exception of the fame, of course.
Parents & Family
We’ve mentioned the relationship between Bertie Highmore and his brother, Freddie Highmore. Both of them were born to parents, Sue Latimer and Edward Highmore. His mother, Sue is a talent agent and a film producer with two feature-length films under her name – Patrick and Ahead of the Class. As a talent agent, she has a couple of notable clients under her belt, including the Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe.
Bertie Highmore’s father, Edward, on the other hand, is an actor who has starred in over 15 films and television shows. Born to an accountant, his father has starred on iconic British shows like Doctor Who and others like The Politician’s Wife, Love Hurts and plenty more others. He got married to Sue in 1989.
Considering Bertie Highmore spends a higher percentage of his time away from the spotlight, it is difficult to get an accurate picture of him but the little information gathered from what is available shows that he is 5 feet 9 inches tall and has a weight of 71kg. He has light brown hair and brown eyes.
