11 Most Shocking Bates Motel Moments So Far

31 August 2015 8:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

A&E

Since 2013, horror fans have had the pleasure of watching three seasons of Bates Motel, starring Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga. As each season has progressed, the story lines have gotten deeper, more dramatic and more mind-bending: providing hours of television perfection as long as you enjoy spending your time with blossoming psychopaths.

Based on Hitchcock’s classic, Bates Motel delves into the character’s backgrounds, charting Norman Bates’ transition from normal(ish) teenage kid to full-on, murderous villain with severe mommy issues. The show began with the death of Norma’s husband, and ended with the bloody murder of Bradley Martin, book-ending Norman’s development with shocking moments.

Shocking moments are the name of the game here. As season four approaches in 2016, fans can expect a further upturn in the shock value of the show, so now is the perfect time to revisit the most jaw-dropping moments of the show so far. »

'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' Star Freddie Highmore Does Sexy Photo Shoot -- See Him Now!

22 July 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Freddie Highmore has come a long way since the chocolate factory! 10 years after the former child star charmed fans in Tim Burton's "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory," the now 23-year-old Brit is gracing the cover of Attitude magazine's Summer 2015 issue. While the cover was first unveiled in May, it randomly started to pick up traction today thanks to a Buzzfeed post. The handsome actor, who currently stars as Norman Bates on "Bates Motel," talks about his new mature look. "I think in a way, being judged as a sex symbol and being famous almost go hand in hand but it is not something I have ever sought," he tells the mag. "It's tricky because these days success relies on promoting the film or the show more and more, and promoting the actors via Twitter and social media, which I am not on.

‘Bates Motel’s’ Vera Farmiga on Physically Demanding Combat Scenes and 6 Other Emmy Contender Quickies

19 June 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Vera Farmiga‘s dynamic performance as unstable single mom Norma Bates in A&E original series “Bates Motel” demands attention as an Emmy contender for best actress in a drama — perhaps even more so now than when she was first nominated for the role in 2013. Over three seasons, Farmiga has portrayed Norma’s emotional unraveling as her serial-killer son Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) slowly evolves into the character so familiar to fans of Alfred Hitchcock‘s 1960 horror classic “Psycho.” Norma scrapes and claws — often literally — to save her son from murder charges, drug dealers and his own spiraling mental health, »
