The first real glimpse of the title character on “How I Met Your Mother” is less than a week away. For now, you can get to know the woman who plays the mother, Cristin Milioti, and a little more about how she got the role.
In this behind-the-scenes video, Milioti recounts the secrecy surrounding her casting and the feeling she had when she was introduced on set as the mother. There’s also a little bit of banter between her and her future TV husband, Josh Radnor, that makes it evident the two have a pretty good chemistry.
“How I Met Your Mother” begins its final season at 8 p.m. ET Monday (Sept. 23) on CBS.
