Neil Patrick Harris was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico in June 1973, and he has been famous for most of his life. Indeed, his talents were spotted at a children’s drama camp, and he was later cast in the movie Clara’s Heart alongside Whoopi Goldberg in 1988. And he proved so good in the movie that he earned himself a Golden Globe nomination. Yet more success was to follow, because he then nabbed a spot on the TV show Doogie Howser, M.D.
