How I Met Your Mother - Cristin Milioti talks about the Premiere

Cristin Milioti may have made her debut as the Mother on How I Met Your Mother’s season finale last May, but she only spoke one line, asking for a train ticket to Farhampton, where Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders) were getting married. Die-hard fans of the long-running show had to wait until Monday night’s Season 9 premiere to learn what happened when the Mother — she still doesn’t have a name — got on that train. (And speaking of trains, you’ll want to get off this one if you don’t want to read any of the MAJOR SPOILERS that lie ahead.)

As the promos for the episode had already revealed, that train is where the Mother met Lily Aldrin (Alyson Hannigan), one of the closest friends of the Mother’s future husband Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor). In an interview with BuzzFeed last month, Milioti said the episode, titled “The Locket,” was a blur for her, but not for the reason you may expect. Best known for her Tony-nominated role in the Broadway musical Once, the 28 year old hadn’t really watched HIMYM until executive producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas cast her in the role last March — and then she promptly spent her summer binge-watching all eight seasons. So while Hannigan and the crew were thrilled to finally get to work with the Mother, she had a different reaction to her first real day on set in July. “It’s so weird,” she said with a laugh. “I think they were like, Oh my god, this is a scene with the Mother! But for me, I’m like, Oh, I’m getting a scene with Lily! It’s so different for me!”

Milioti, a New Jersey-native and professed die-hard New Yorker, noted that the biggest revelation for her in the scene was how clean the train was. “That’s a way clean Metro North car,” she said. “There were no beer bottles or urine rolling up and down the aisles. Yeah, Metro North is not a good place to be.” (For the geography sticklers among you, since Farhampton is a totally made-up place, the Metro North train could totally go there.)

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.
