Anatomy of a Scene: “Bates Motel,” Season 5, Episode 8: “The Body” (A&E)
Freddie Highmore pulled double duty with this episode of A&E’s “Psycho” prequel, directing and starring as young Norman Bates. The actor considers Norman’s violent jailhouse encounter with his “Mother” (Vera Farmiga) as essential to the series finale. It sets up “that ‘Mother’ has now taken over Norman in a way that seems perhaps permanent,” he says. “And so obviously the goal of the scene was to convey that basic switching of personas, from Norman being himself and then being taken over by his mother.”
First Assistant Director
“On ‘Bates’ we’re like a true family, with people that you knew were always looking out for you, that you knew would point out something to you if something went wrong and you were acting and technically you weren’t able to watch what was going on on-screen,” Highmore »
