Noah Wyle's Age : LUSENET : ER Discussions : One Thread

How old is Noah Wyle?

-- Kami (, May 06, 2000


He's 28 -- turning 29 on June 4, I think. Carter is one year older.

-- Rachel (, May 06, 2000.

oh, let me guess Kami, you wanted to go on a date with him? Me too!

-- Gina G. (, May 06, 2000.

Noah is getting married today. (May 6)

-- Kami (, May 06, 2000.

Oh Kami, let's just get together and have a pity party. How horrible.

-- Gina G. (, May 06, 2000.

That is not horrible! I am happy for him! He should be able to get married without a bunch of people complaining about it!

-- Kami (, May 06, 2000.

ok Kami you win. We really didn't have a shot for him anyway!! Yes I am happy for him, I just hope it lasts. (by the way Kami, don't you always win??)

I was also *slightly* upset he got married, though I am way too old to be chasing movie stars! But anyways, my main comment is about Carter's age...this doesn't make much sense, but Carter told Dr. Anspaugh on the last epi of season 3 that he was only 25...which would make the character 28 right now. I know, this doesn't make sense, unless he skipped a year; also Lucy was 24 when she was a 3rd year, and when Carter said he was 25, he was already a doctor. Doesn't make sense. Maybe Carter's a genius.

-- Elaine (, May 07, 2000.

I read somewhere in a bio/cast roster that Carter was scripted to be one year older than Wyle. And that would make sense unless as Elaine pointed out, he's some kind of genius like Doogie Howser.

Noah's b-day is 6/4/71. In "Full Moon, Saturday Night" way back in season one, he says Carter's b-day is 6/4/70. Which makes Noah turning 29 and Carter turning 30. Lucy was 24 as a third year, Carter was a third year in '94-'95, right? One quirk, though. After Doug and Harper had their "affair", Doug strongly states she is 21, but a third year, so something is off there.

-- Joanne (, May 08, 2000.

I also heard Doug say (about Harper) "She's 21 years old, she can make her own decisions." And then they also stated that she was a third year med student.

-- Kami (, May 08, 2000.

I may be way off here, but I seem to remember them mentioning something about Harper and that she had graduated from high school early or something in the nature that she was younger than most third year med students. Anyone else recall such a storyline???

-- amanda (, May 08, 2000.

I also think I remember that Harper placed very high on her boards, like in the 85 percentile or something. Sounds like she was very bright. She could have done extra hours in undergrad school and gone summers.

-- Diana (, May 09, 2000.

Harper came in the top 14 % at high school. She wanted to be a fighter pilot + astronaut as well as a doctor, so she was going to serve in the air force after med school.

I think the point about Doug saying she was 21 was he meant she was an adult (ie over 21) and this was some kind of justiufication for him sleeping with her.
