My Houzz: Neil Patrick Harris Gives His Brother a New Backyard
Actor Neil Patrick Harris always looked up to his older brother, Brian, while growing up in New Mexico. “Considering I was the annoying, performing younger brother, he was kind to me and let me follow around on all of his adventures,” Harris says. “And I really appreciated that.”
Harris — whose television roles have included Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother and the eponymous teenage doctor on Doogie Howser, M.D., and who was host of the 2015 Academy Awards — recently showed his appreciation for his brother by surprising him with a major makeover to his backyard and family room in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
