bates motel norman bates bird Happy birthday, Freddie Highmore! Here's him looking creepy in 'Bates Motel' Season 1
The intensely likable “Bates Motel” star Freddie Highmore turns 22 this Valentine’s Day. He’s been a cutie since he was a kid, but his latest role, as a pre-murderous Norman Bates in A&E’s “Psycho” prequel(ish), totally erases that lovable image we have of him.

In honor of his special day, we rounded up some of the times he’s looked the creepiest on “Bates Motel” — which is to say, a bunch of pictures of him from “Bates Motel” Season 1.

To be fair, anyone looks creepy when you realize they’re a young Norman Bates and you know exactly what they’re gonna do later on in his life. Some of the Freddie pics really do have a genuinely creepy vibe, but others would be totally adorable if it weren’t for the fact that they’re of a budding psychopath.

Enjoy. “Bates Motel” returns to A&E for Season 2 on Monday, March 3.
