HOT NOW :

Cristin Milioti was up for the mother of all roles and she didn't even realize it.

"I didn't watch How I Met Your Mother. This is embarrassing!" she tells TVGuide.com. "I had never seen it. But that's nothing to do with the show; it's because of my own sheltered life. ... I didn't know what was happening on the show, so I never thought that I was interviewing to be The Mother."

After eight years of seeing her foot, her yellow umbrella and bass guitar, and hearing Ted's (Josh Radnor) roundabout stories, viewers were introduced to Milioti, who would be the future Mrs. Mosby in the final seconds of the Season 8 finale. The long-awaited reveal is perhaps only matched in anticipation by the lengths to which co-creators and executive producersCarter Bays and Craig Thomas went to keep the Tony-nominated Once star's casting a secret. They didn't tell Milioti why they wanted to meet with her — only that it was for an arc — and the trio chatted via Skype before Bays and Thomas asked the New York-based actress to fly to L.A. for a chemistry test with Radnor.

"But they told me I couldn't tell anyone. It was like a covert operation," Milioti says with a laugh. "Then all these people [from the show] started coming to see [Once] before I flew out there. I had my sneaking suspicions, like, 'This must be a big deal.' ... I still didn't know after I flew there for the chemistry read. I probably would've realized it sooner if I had watched the show, but I put two and two together because the set was on lockdown whenI got there, and everyone was so warm and lovely and excited to meet me."
