Born April 3rd, 1982, model-turned-actress Cobie Smulders grew up in her native British Columbia and commuted regularly from Vancouver to Los Angeles while looking for assignments. Smulders reportedly secured a work visa thanks to her first major role: that of Robin, the charming TV reporter whom lead character Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) falls in love with on their very first date, on the sitcom How I Met Your Mother (2005). Before that, she had been a regular on the adventure series Veritas: The Quest and had appeared several times on The L Word (both series were shot in Canada). Her resumé also includes minor feature appearances in the Chris Klein comedy The Long Weekend (2004, as Ellen) and the Rock-headlined actioner Walking Tall (2004, as the Exotic Beauty). The actress continued to find success with How I Met Your Mother, and appeared as Agent Maria Hill in 2012's blockbuster The Avengers.
