Later on, she was seen with an American actor and rapper Tyler James Williams.
There was never a moment when he sat me down and said, "Now, Freddie, this is what you've got to do."' He has worked with Helena Bonham Carter three times, in , last year's TV dramatisation of Nigel Slater's best-selling memoir, in which he played the troubled teenaged Slater.
'Helena's great fun and she's always looked after me.
Even the toughest cinemagoers left Finding Neverland choking back tears because of Freddie's astonishing final scene with Depp. He does not necessarily plan on being an adult actor, with a professional soccer career more to his liking.
He now stands alongside Dakota Fanning as the industry's great young talents, but talk to Freddie about his fame and it is not important. "Why not," he says, discussing the chances he might one day play for Arsenal.
His performance as Peter Llewelyn Davies, the boy who inspired Barrie's Peter Pan, won him heartfelt praise from Depp, who felt he was 'capable of anything', while screenwriter John August remarked that 'he's the kind of kid who could ask for a glass of water and break your heart'. I just saw them as friends.' He went on to appear in blockbusters such as ,' says Freddie, 'but a lot of people seem to say how good it was to work with me It was great to work with Johnny twice.

He says his friends also do not think of him as a big Hollywood star. "They don't ask for autograph or anything." Even the kids he plays competition soccer against do not give him special attention, although Freddie says it is probably because they do not know who he is. This interview with Freddie for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is taking place in The Bahamas because his good friend, Depp, was tied up in the tropical paradise shooting the two sequels to his 2003 blockbuster, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. But, I am just a normal kid." He might be normal, however most 13-year-old's have grandiose dreams about who they would like to be when they are in their 30s or 40s. Any other 19-year-old with Johnny Depp on speed dial might be a little uncomfortable in such scholarly surroundings but Freddie (real name Alfred) is perfectly at ease.After all, the young actor has just finished his first year at Cambridge where he is studying Spanish and Arabic.Hannah Dakota Fanning, also known as Kodie, Kota, or Blue Eyes, is an American actress, model and singer.
