From his wise career moves to his personal victories, there are tons of reasons to admire Neil Patrick Harris. You’ve seen him on How I Met Your Mother, Doogie Howser M.D., The Smurfs, Starship Troopers—the list goes on and on. But acting isn’t his only talent. Here are some legendary reasons to admire Neil Patrick Harris.
1. He’s Dedicated
Let’s face it, most child stars end up as unknown adults or slip into bad habits. It’s rare for an actor to have a hit television show when they’re young and land another one ten years later. One of the reasons to admire Neil Patrick Harris has to do with his success in the acting business. After years of fame from Doogie Howser, M.D. and Clara’s Heart, he managed to strike gold again with How I Met Your Mother. The show is ending this year, but Neil’s going to head to Broadway soon after to act in Hedwig and The Angry Inch. His schedule never ends!
