Robin is one of the most critical people in How I Met Your Mother. She is Barney Stinson’s and Ted Mosby’s love interest, but they break up and get back together. When Smulders took on the role of Robin, she might not have been well-known to many viewers. But by the time the show was in its third season, people worldwide knew her name and the character she played so well.
Smulders was in How I Met Your Mother for the show’s whole run, and she was in most of the episodes. When HIMYM ended in 2014, Smulders was a worldwide star, a member of the MCU, and a very well-paid actor. During the show’s run, Smulders also got married to Saturday Night Live star Taran Killam.

In 2009, Smulders and Killam, a comedian, got engaged. They were together for about 4 years before they got married in 2012.
Killam later talked about how their relationship started, saying, “A month in, it was hot and heavy.” She was driving me around when she suddenly made a U-turn for no reason. I was like, “What’s going on?” What do you do?’ She said, “I’m sorry.” It’s always something I do. ” Killam told Smulders that he had seen a kid with a lemonade stand and that the child’s simple act of kindness made him realize she was the one for him.
Most of the time, Smulders and Killam don’t talk about how much they love each other. Still, Killam made a few surprising and fun guest appearances on How I Met Your Mother.
Killam was on How I Met Your Mother a total of six times, making him an essential part of the show’s history. The Hollywood Reporter says that Killam played a character named Blauman more than once. Blauman was a horrible person who showed up at Robin and Barney’s wedding and made a lasting impression.
