On the Set: 'HIMYM'
September 19, 2011
It should be known that there have been many starry-eyed incidents during which I kept my cool: being hugged by Sarah Michelle Gellar, winked at by John Krasinski and breaking bread with Julianne Moore are just a few examples.
But there was simply no containing the jubilation dripping from every pore as I sat in the very apartment that Ted Mosby, Robin Scherbatsky, Barney Stinson, Marshall Eriksen and Lily Aldrin have, at one time or another, called home.
And that was just the first minute of my exclusive How I Met Your Mother set visit! The other 119 minutes included time on a MacLaren's bar stool, watching the gang film a flashback-heavy scene and an unannounced real life flashback when Sarah Chalke stopped by to say hi to the cast & crew. And after being repeatedly promised that Stella won't be returning to the show, I was able to enjoy Sarah, Cobie Smulders and Alyson Hannigan playing a little photo-heavy game of "how cute are our babies?!?"
Of course the main reason behind my trip to fake NYC was to get some season seven scoop and interview the cast! So without further ado, please enjoy part one of my HIMYM set visit, where I chat with Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel about Lily & Marshall's baby-centric future. Also, it turns out they both have pretty perfect plans on how to extend the series beyond the big Mother reveal!
How I Met Your Mother premieres Monday, Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
