The Best of Bertie Highmore’s Movies, His Family Dynamics and Net Worth

One of the many interesting things about nature is how siblings who share the same DNA could record different results at the same activity. This fact has been known to play out more often than not in the acting industry where siblings share a varying and often vast degree 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 as well as other details worth learning about Bertie Highmore.

Bertie Highmore’s Background And Career

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 in London, England, while his older brother, Freddie, was born just three years before him on the 14th of February 1992. According to Bertie’s social media profile, he is a former student at Highgate School and following his graduation from Highgate, he continued his tertiary education at The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) from where he finished with a B.Sc. in Management, Finance.

Although not much is known about Bertie Highmore’s childhood, it is common knowledge that he was raised to follow in the path of his parents in the entertainment industry and it culminated in his appearance in a film in 1999. However, having tasted the world of acting at an early age, Bertie grew up to tow a different path from the entertainment industry, which is why he studied a course that is unrelated to entertainment.

His chosen career path has seen him working in a number of organizations, including Purple Seven where he served as an analyst from September 2013 to May 2014. In 2015, he joined Morgan Stanley as an intern and worked there for a few months before moving on to Goldman Sachs, in London, UK, in April, serving in the position of Summer analyst/campus ambassador until September 2016. From June 2017 to March 2018, Bertie worked as a quantitative options trader at Susquehanna International Group and eventually landed his current job as a senior analyst at Blenheim Chalcot, ten months later.

His Stint In The Movie Industry

Bertie Highmore’s choice of a career in the financial sector might come as a surprise to some people considering his early stint as an actor. Nevertheless, the young man appears to have found his calling not in front of a camera but in crunching numbers.

Before he veered off acting, Bertie featured in only one movie – Women Talking Dirty – alongside his brother. He portrayed the character of Col, the younger son of Cora (Helena Bonham Carter) whom she had for her best friend’s husband after a one night stand. The movie received positive reviews from critics and did relatively well in the box office. With a 77% score on Rotten Tomatoes, the general consensus is that it is well above average and simply hilarious. It was also described as one of the best British films in recent years.

With the success of Bertie Highmore’s first movie role, one would have expected him to go on and star in more films and TV shows, especially 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. Moreover, even though his performance was considered okay, he never got any award nomination for his role in the movie.

Details Of Bertie’s Family’s Involvement in Show Business

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. But while that has been true so far for his brother, Freddie, it has not been the same for Bertie.

Freddie, who is arguably the more successful actor in the family, 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. With a total of 40 nominations and 11 wins which includes a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations, he is definitely at the peak of his career.

Bertie Highmore’s mother, Sue Latimer, 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 Highmore, on the other hand, is an actor who has starred in over 15 films and television shows. Born to an accountant, Edward has starred on iconic British shows like Doctor Who and others like The Politician’s Wife, Love Hurts, and many more others.

Discussing Bertie Highmore’s Net Worth

Despite his family’s many years of involvement in the entertainment industry, it is commendable that Bertie was allowed to choose a career path away from all the media and entertainment brouhaha. He seems to enjoy working in the financial sector and is definitely making his money from there. However, whereas his brother, Freddie Highmore is estimated to be worth around $4 million, Berties’ net worth is unknown.

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. Moreover, if one of the reasons he chose not to pursue a career in acting is to keep a low profile then it might be difficult to ascertain how much he currently earns or his worth. From all indications, he appears to be doing really well.
