How I Met Your Mother loyalists hoping Barney and Robin will be unmasked as the mystery bride and groom later this season may be out of luck: Former General Hospital nurse Nazanin Boniadi is joining the CBS hitcom as a love interest for Neil Patrick Harris’ cad-about-town.
According to a Mother insider, Boniadi will appear in multiple episodes as Sarah. Sorry, but that’s where the character description begins and ends.
Boniadi’s GH alter ego, Nurse Leyla, was introduced in the 2007 SoapNet spinoff Night Shift. After that show’s cancellation, the actress continued playing the role on the mothership until her character’s untimely death in 2009. Boniadi’s credits also include guest spots on 24, The Deep End and HawthoRNe.
Reaction to Boniadi’s Mother of a new gig? Do you think Sarah will be a serious threat to, um, Rorney? Hit the comments! BTW, HIMYM is back with new episodes this Monday at 8 pm!
