Recommended Posts


Cobie Smulders (born April 3, 1982, in Vancouver, BC, Canada) is an actress and former international model.

Modelling roles

As a child Smulders wanted to be either a doctor or a marine biologist but started to gain an interest in acting in high school, appearing in several school productions. Discovered by a modelling agency in her teens, she started to model internationally, including in locations such as Paris, Japan, Milan, Greece, and Germany.

She finished high school in 2000 with high honors, being voted "Most Respected", and continued modelling for a few years before settling in Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.

Acting roles

Her first role was as a guest in the Showtime sci-fi series Jeremiah, and she has guest starred in numerous television series since, including a recurring part in The L Word.

Her first permanent series role was in the short-lived ABC series Veritas: The Quest; her second would be the series for which she is most well known, the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, where she plays television reporter Robin Scherbatsky.


She is Canadian and so is her character, Robin Scherbatsky, in How I Met Your Mother.

She is fluent in French.

Joss Whedon joked about her being his choice for the lead role in the film adaption of Wonder Woman after he left the project.
