How I Met Your Mother - Season 9 - Cristin Milioti's Interview with TV Guide

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."

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.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

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.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
