He won the Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Young Performer in two consecutive years (2004–2005).
Highmore was rumored to be voicing Jim Lake Jr. in season 2, following the death of Anton Yelchin. However, this rumor was never sourced, and it was eventually confirmed that Yelchin had recorded enough dialogue for him to provide the voice of Jim for the entirety of season 2.
