How I Met Your Mother actress Cobie Smulders has revealed how she was very intimidated during filming for The Avengers during one of the all star scenes. Cobie admitted that the fact that she had to share a scene with all of these huge movie stars made her feel very intimidated and the fact that she had a line to say made things even worse.
Smulders explained, “It was very intimidating and I think I turned the same colour as the background and I was kind of like ‘I’m just gonna be over here until you need me. When you need me to say that one line, I’ll be right here.’ I was very intimidated but it was amazing because I had that one scene with everyone, but I was just kind of able to watch it all take place.”
She added, “I didn’t have a lot of involvement [in the scene] because she [Maria] just wouldn’t and I just kind of got to watch it all and go ‘Wow, we’re all here’”. You can see Cobie Smulders portraying the character Maria Hill in The Avengers when it is released in the UK on April 27, 2012 and then in the US on May 4, 2012.
