Cobie Smulders Wiki and Pics

Jacoba Francisca Maria "Cobie" Smulders[1] (born April 3, 1982)[2] is a Canadian actress and former model, known for her role as Robin Scherbatsky on the television series How I Met Your Mother and Maria Hill in The Avengers.

 Early life

Smulders was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, to a Dutch father and an English mother. She was named after her great-aunt, Jacoba, from whom she gained the nickname "Cobie."[3]
Smulders worked in modeling, which she later said she "kind of hated," adding that the experience made her hesitant about pursuing acting as a career: "You know you go into these rooms, and I've had the experience of people judging you physically for so long and I was over that. But then it was like, 'Oh no, I have to actually perform. I have to do well, and I have to have a voice, and I have to have thoughts now.'"[4]

Smulders' first role was as a guest in the Showtime science-fiction series Jeremiah, and she has appeared in several television series since, including a recurring part in The L Word. On the New York stage, she has performed in Love, Loss, and What I Wore from at least June 10 to June 27, 2010.[5] Her first permanent series role was in the short-lived ABC series Veritas: The Quest, and her second was television reporter Robin Scherbatsky on the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother. Joss Whedon has suggested that he considered her for the role of Wonder Woman in his draft of the (cancelled) eponymous film.[6] Smulders played Maria Hill in Whedon's 2012 film The Avengers and will reprise the role in the Russo brothers' 2014 film Captain America: The Winter Soldier [7] with the possibility of also reprising the role in the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. series.

 Personal life

Smulders and American actor Taran Killam became engaged in January 2009.[9] They married on September 8, 2012 in Solvang, California.[10] The couple has a daughter, Shaelyn Cado Killam (born May 2009).[11]
Smulders resides in Los Angeles, California.[12]
