Born July 11, 1989, actor David Henrie was growing up in Phoenix, Arizona, when a successful appearance in a local commercial prompted him to move out to Hollywood and further pursue his abilities. In the ensuing years, Henrie landed a slew of guest roles on such popular series as the family drama "Providence," the legal show "Judging Amy," and the investigative procedural "Without a Trace." The years 2003 and 2004 brought the young performer his first lead roles in the Hallmark movies "Monster Makers" and "The Hollywood Mom's Mystery," the former of which was a Linda-Blair-featuring children's horror comedy that framed Henrie as a viable family-friendly star. Henrie quickly caught the attention of the Disney Channel and began appearing in a recurring role on the network's hit series "That's So Raven." Proving to be a Disney personality of enduring popularity, he became a regular on the modern-magic-themed "Wizards of Waverly Place," playing the eldest and most straight-laced of a trio of sorcerer siblings. Henrie can also be seen as the son who listlessly entertains his father's stories in the wraparound segments of the hit sitcom "How I Met Your Mother."
