  Summary  

Jacoba Francisca Maria "Cobie" Smulders is a Canadian actress and former model, known for her role as Robin Scherbatsky on the CBS television series How I Met Your Mother.

  Biography  

 early life
Smulders was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to a Dutch father and an English mother. She was named after her Spanish-Dutch great-aunt, Jacoba, for which she gained the nickname "Cobie".

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. She finished high school in 2000 at Lord Byng Secondary School with high honours, being voted "Most Respected". Discovered by a modelling agency in her teens, she started to model internationally. In an interview with Venus Zine, Smulders said she “kind of hated” modelling and the experience made her hesitant about pursuing acting as a career initially: “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.’”

 personal life
Smulders resides in Los Angeles, California. On November 26, 2008, TV Guide reported that Smulders and boyfriend Taran Killam were expecting their first child in 2009. On January 28, 2009, the couple announced their engagement. Their daughter, Shaelyn Cado Killam was born on May 16, 2009.

Smulders is an avid Vancouver Canucks fan. In December 2010 she was on the cover of Maxim Magazine.
