Biography

Jacoba Francisca Maria Cobie Smulders (born April 3, 1982) is a Canadian actress and former model, known for her current role as Robin Scherbatsky on the CBS television series How I Met Your Mother and Maria Hill in the 2012 film The Avengers. Smulders was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, to a Dutch father and an English mother. She was named after her great-aunt, from whom she gained the nickname Cobie. 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 Ive 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.
