Bio

Neil Patrick Harris is an American actor best known for his television roles as the teenage doctor Doogie Howser, M.D. and the womanising Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother.

In the theatre he starred in Arthur Miller's All My Sons at the Geffen Playhouse. Other theatre credits include star turns in the London musical production of Jonathan Larson's Tick, Tick ... Boom, the Tony Award-winning musical Assassins, Cabaret and Proof.

His additional television credits include the series Stark Raving Mad, Will & Grace, NUMB3RS, the mini-series Joan of Arc, and the television movie The Christmas Blessing.

Among Harris' feature film credits are Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, Undercover Brother, Starship Troopers, The Next Big Thing and Clara's Heart, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination.

On November 2, 2006, after a report about Harris' purported romantic relationship with actor David Burtka surfaced on Canada.com, Harris' publicist issued a denial, stating that the actor "is not of that persuasion."

However, a day later Harris, who had long been openly gay in his personal life and in the theatre community, came out to the media in People. His statement read:

"The public eye has always been kind to me, and until recently I have been able to live a pretty normal life. Now it seems there is speculation and interest in my private life and relationships.

"So, rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumours or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love."

Born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Harris now resides in Los Angeles.
