"Sophie is... she's just looking for love in the modern world of dating, which is so difficult for so many, especially for her, but she never gives up," she said of her character who has on an off-again romance with love interest Jesse, played by Christopher Lowell. "Season two starts off with her just trying again. And then she gets involved in some tangles that start with some little white lies that turn into bigger lies and she's in a big lie snowball and it was very fun to play."

The series is the spin-off of the iconic 'How I Met Your Mother', which aired for nine years before ending in 2014. Cobie Smulders, who portrayed Robin Scherbatsky in the original series, made a cameo appearance towards the end of Season One of 'HIMYF', much to the delight of fans, and Hilary teased that there will be more of it in the future. "I think I might lose my job if I told you who, but, we do have a special guest from the original cast coming this season and it was a dream come true working that day on set," she said before adding, "I think our dream would be to have everyone from the entire cast to come through at some time."

As per Daily Mail, the 'Lizzie Maguire' actress admitted that she relies on her husband, Matthew Koma, a huge 'HIMYM' fan, to assist her in researching her scripts for allusions to the original. "If I'm reading a script and I'm not catching something, and I ask, 'Is this a joke from the original?' he's like, 'Yes Hilary, it's a joke from the original. How do you not know this?' and he'll tell me how to say it or tell me what big moment the words were or whatever else is happening from How I Met Your Mother," she said.

"I think there's actually more hidden than we know, because we do lots of flash backs and flash forwards and then sometimes we have to go back and re-shoot something because we go this is a moment that could sneak something in, I think we'll end up at the end of the show that reveals all the tie-ins," she added.
