Norman Bates

Norman Bates is a fictional character created by Robert Bloch as the main antagonist in his 1959 Psycho, and portrayed by Anthony Perkins in the 1960 version of Psycho directed by Alfred Hitchcock and the Psycho franchise. He is also portrayed by Vince Vaughn in the 1998 version of Psycho, and by Freddie Highmore in the television series Bates Motel (2013 - 2017) which retells the Psycho story over the years prior to the events of the novel and film. Unlike the franchise produced by Universal Studios, Norman is not the principal antagonist in Bloch's subsequent novels and is succeeded by copycat killers who assume Norman's identity after his death in 1982's Psycho II. The character was inspired by Wisconsin murderer Ed Gein.
