David Hyde Pierce Frasier

He appeared as Niles Crane, Frasier’s younger brother, a psychiatrist in private practice in the American television sitcom Frasier.


Niles’ pedantic, neurotic qualities provide a foil for Frasier’s own idiosyncrasies. He is fastidious, fussy, and far snobbier than Frasier. He is also devoted, chivalrous, and incredibly loving, which more than compensates for his shortcomings in the eyes of his loved ones. Niles is very close to his older brother, and their fiercely competitive personalities provide much of the humour. Niles, like Frasier, prefers arts, music, and intellectual pursuits to sports, though he excels at squash and croquet. Niles is particularly mysophobic, wiping his hands after human contact and wiping down public chairs before sitting on them.

Frasier Crane, a Harvard-trained psychiatrist, returns to his hometown of Seattle, Washington, after his marriage and life in Boston come to an end. When he is forced to take in his father, Martin, a retired Seattle Police Department detective, his plans for a new life as a single man are jeopardized. Niles’ relationship with his unseen first wife is another recurring theme.
