How I Met Your Mother - Lyndsy Fonseca and David Henrie Interview

As How I Met Met Your Mother heads towards its swan song, TVLine continues to take a look back at — and offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse of — the show’s nine-year run.

In our latest farewell-themed piece, we chatted with Ted’s kids, played by Lyndsy Fonseca (Nikita) and David Henrie (Wizards of Waverly Place), and uncovered seven things you probably never knew about the character’s known simply as “Son” and “Daughter.”

THEY ALMOST STUCK AROUND | During the CBS comedy’s very early days, the kids’ fate was a bit up in the air. “They weren’t sure what they were doing with our characters because they thought it might have been a much bigger role than it turned out to be,” reveals Henrie. “They weren’t sure if they wanted to do any storylines with them. It was sort of a hazy area.… We were, at first, going to negotiate a series-regular contract. As we started to shoot, they were like, ‘We think it’s just going to be these little things at the front of the episodes.’ So it turned into more of a recurring thing.”

DAD READ TO THEM | Though they never appeared on screen with him, Fonseca and Henrie did share some time with their TV father. “Josh [Radnor], in the first season, would be at work that day so he would read the off-camera lines that Bob Saget does,” shares the actress.

THEY CHEATED TIME | Fonseca and Henrie “went back a few times the first season [to shoot scenes] before [David] started going through puberty and all of a sudden became a man. The creators were like, ‘Oh, no. This isn’t good,’” recalls the actress with a laugh. To work around their rapidly growing star, the two young actors shot stock footage to be used in future episodes, including the series finale. “Everyone abandoned the stage, and it was just me, Lyndsy and the two show creators,” remembers Henrie. “We had to sign [non-disclosure agreements] as far as secrecy.” Adds Fonseca: “We signed a confidentiality agreement saying that we would not say who the mother is. They also didn’t know how many years the show was going to go. They filmed the ending of the show then just to have it.”
