Neil Patrick Harris has been a household name for years, and that doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon.

He’s one of those celebrities that everyone loves, and for good reason!

Check out these top facts about this multi-talented actor that you may be surprised to learn!

While most people think of him as an actor, Neil Patrick Harris is also a writer, producer, comedian, singer, and even amateur magician!

Both of his parents were lawyers who also ran a restaurant.

At the early age of 3, Neil played Toto in a school production of “The Wizard of Oz.”

Neil’s career kicked off at the age of 15 when he was discovered by Mark Medoff – a playwright who found him at a drama camp.

When Neil started acting, he went by his full name because there was already another actor named Neil Harris.

This discovery led to Neil starring in a movie adaptation of a novel, “Clara’s Heart” alongside Whoopi Goldberg. His talent in this film earned him a Golden Globe nomination at the age of 15!

Neil Patrick Harris scored the lead in Doogie Howser, M.D., which had a significant amount of success. However, he almost wasn’t cast for the role, as the show executives didn’t like the casting choice, but the producer shot the pilot with Neil anyway!

The first role as an adult for Harris was in 1995’s Animal Room – ironically enough, he played a teenager.
