Jacoba Francisca Maria "Cobie" Smulders (born April 3, 1982) is a Canadian actress and former model, known for her roles as Robin Scherbatsky on the television series How I Met Your Mother and Maria Hill in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
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.'"Smulders at the 2011 New York Comic Con.
Smulders' first acting role was as a guest in the Showtime science fiction series Jeremiah, and she has appeared in several television series since, including a recurring role in The L Word. Her first permanent series role was in the short-lived ABC series Veritas: The Quest, which ran for one season.
Smulders played Maria Hill in Joss Whedon's 2012 film The Avengers. She reprised the role in the 2013 premiere of the television series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and again in 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier and has been announced to do so again in Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015. Whedon has suggested he had considered her for the role of Wonder Woman in his draft of the eponymous film, which did not go into production. Smulders did voice a Lego version of Wonder Woman in the 2014 animated film The Lego Movie.
Smulders and American actor Taran Killam became engaged in January 2009. They married on September 8, 2012 in Solvang, California. The couple has a daughter, Shaelyn Cado Killam (born May 14, 2009).
