Neil Patrick Harris Net Worth, Biography & Wiki 2017

Neil Patrick Harris was born on 15 June 1973, in Albuquerque, New Mexico USA,  and is an actor, producer, director, singer and magician, who is probably at the top of his game now. Best known for his role of the womanizer Barney Stinson in the hit TV sitcom “How I Met Your Mother”, he is one of the actors most in demand today.

So just how rich is Neil Patrick Harris? Sources estimate that his net worth is in the region of $35 million, a good deal of it accumulated during years appearing in “How I Met Your Mother”, as his salary per episode was reputed to have risen to $400,000.

Neil Patrick Harris Net Worth $25 Million

And it wouldn’t be an overstatement to stay that his life is truly fairylike. In 2010 he and his partner actor David Burtka became parents of fraternal twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace. The proud parents have recently decided to move to a house worth $2,100,000, located in Sherman Oaks. The birth of the twins made their envy-inducing partnership even more beautiful. Neil Patrick Harris opened up about his sexuality in 2006 and he is one of the most vocal activists of equal rights movement. Now that we’ve had a quick peek at the personal life of the enormously talented Harris, let’s take a look at his career choices. Born to a family of restaurant owners in 1973, he was already showing great acting skills in his early teenage years. The witty actor’s big breakthrough was the role of teenage physician Doogie Howser on a popular TV series Doogie Howser M.D. Since then he has appeared in such popular movies as “The Smurfs”, “The Smurfs 2” and shows “Harold and Kumar”, “Beastly” and “How I Met Your Mother”. The last-mentioned show made him insanely popular all over the world and, naturally, increased his net worth, but recently said goodbye to its viewers after ten years full of fun, love and friendship between five friends living in New Your City.

Despite the show’s central theme of Ted Mosby’s attempts to find the love of his life, it was Barney Stinson’s legendary-wait-for- it-daily obsession with suits, questionable ways of seducing women and all-round awesomeness that made this sitcom one of the most beloved and quoted shows in the history of television.Quite an act to follow for Neil Patrick, as he is openly gay, but which incidentally has been no handicap whatever in his career progression; his constantly increasing net worth certainly shows that.

In 2010 his name was included in Time magazine’s list of most influential people, and one year later Harris received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but it only keeps on getting better for this actor: that’s right – like his TV character Barney Stinson, Neil Patrick Harris is also no stranger to magic tricks and he is even the President of the Board of Directors of Hollywood’s Magic Castle.

As if that wasn’t enough, Neil Patrick Harris has proven to be a multi-talented host of prestigious events, such as Tony Awards and Academy Awards. His musical talents, quick wit and on-stage showmanship have helped him win over huge audiences at numerous times. So, with all this huge success in the entertainment business it is no wonder that his net worth keeps on increasing. Neil Patrick Harris is in demand and we can only wonder what life has in store for this charismatic actor.

31Has been in a committed relationship with stage and screen actor David Burtka, his partner since 2004.
32He is credited using all three names because there was already a different actor named Neil Harris in the Screen Actors Guild by the time he first got his SAG card.

This was to make clear that he was playing a fictional character that was in no way a true representation of himself.

38Based on his Los Angeles stage performance in the musical Rent, he was attached to play Mark Cohen in a television mini series based on the Broadway musical, with Wilson Cruz as Angel, Rikki Lee Travolta as Roger Davis, and singer Shakira as Mimi, but the rights were pulled in order for Chris Columbus to make a film adaptation using much of the original Broadway cast including Anthony Rapp in the role of Mark.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on David Fincher] He's been one of my favorite directors since 'The Game', starring Michael Douglas. He directs as if he is an artist painting pictures, so he tends to create a quiet, unsettling dynamic through the use of symmetry and asymmetry. And when you look at the paintings he's created, you feel something is a bit amiss, and there's a yearning for something - something that isn't there... I think he picks his projects really carefully, based on the knowledge that he will make them better. He knows what's in his wheelhouse.
2I have always been a fan of that immersive theatre idea that there is some kind of puzzle unfolding, and that things are happening around you without you knowing it.
3[on the Tony Awards] We like to call it 50 Shades of Gay.
4I'm not the biggest fan of the word 'partner'. It either means that we run a business together or we're cowboys. 'Boyfriend' seems fleeting, like maybe we met two weeks ago. I've been saying 'better half' for as long as I've been able to. I think it's a little self-deprecating and clearly defines that we're in a relationship, but it would be nice to say 'my husband'.
5She's like the coolest, nicest chick ever. She's an absolute catch, and I thought if I'm not going to feel the super sparks with her, then it probably means that I'm gay. [Speaking to Howard Stern about having dated actress Christine Taylor in his early 20s].
6Comedy is way more difficult than drama. What I might find funny, the editor might not find funny. They might choose the reaction shot from Take 4 with my line from Take 1 with my next line from Take 7, and then the timing that I was trying to do does not come across.
7I heard through the grapevine that they'd written this movie and that I was in it, and that I had to call my attorneys and make it stop -- that it was a bad thing, and I read it and thought it was hilarious. A friend was auditioning for a different part in the movie and said, 'do you know about this movie that you're in?' - on playing "Neil Patrick Harris" in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (2004).
8People Magazine, November 3, 2006: "Rather than ignore those who choose to publish their opinions without actually talking to me, I am happy to dispel any rumors 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."
