Vancouver's Cobie Smulders Stars in The Avengers

With the Canucks going out in shame during the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the city of Vancouver needed a pick me up.  Well they had to look no further than hometown model and actress Cobie Smulders.  Smulders never gave much thought to acting. Born on April 3, 1982, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Cobie had set her sights on becoming a doctor or a marine biologist. In fact, it wasn't until high school that Cobie started to explore acting after appearing in several school productions.  Once out of high school it wasn't long before Cobie landed roles in several hit television series.  Her most successful is her role as "Robin" in How I Met Your Mother.

Now the How I Met Your Mother star is taking on a legendary role in the first big popcorn flick of the summer, Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated The Avengers. Smulders plays S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill, who was described by former Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada as “a force of nature.” 

Are you planning to see The Avengers? We think Cobie is going to rock the big screen!  Your thoughts?
