  • After eight seasons of build-up, the namesake "mother" on CBS's How I Met Your Mother was

  • finally revealed in 2013.

  • It was one of the most anticipated moments in TV history, so the absolute perfect actress

  • had to be cast.

  • The producers somehow found the right woman for the job: a then little-known actress named

  • Cristin Milioti.

  • Here's what else she's appeared in, both before and after How I Met Your Mother.

  • Once (Broadway)

  • Fans of the New York theater scene may recognize Milioti from her stage work.

  • She's performed steadily both on and off Broadway for more than a decade.

  • Most notably, when the 2007 indie hit Once was adapted for the theater in 2011 theater,

  • Milioti played the unnamed female lead, earning a Tony Award nomination for Best Performance

  • by a Leading Actress in a Musical.

  • The Sopranos

  • While pursuing a career as a stage actor in New York, Milioti landed roles in some TV

  • productions based out of the Tri-State area, including The Sopranos.

  • Toward the end of the HBO mob drama's run, Milioti played Catherine Sacrimoni, daughter

  • of John Sacrimoni, the ruthless boss of the Lupertazzi crime family.

  • "You're the one that wanted a big wedding!"

  • "Catherine, your sister has enough to deal with without the commentary."

  • 30 Rock

  • Another New York-based TV show that hired Milioti was NBC's 30 Rock.

  • In 2011, Milioti portrayed a seemingly shallow standup comedian named Abby Flynn who affects

  • a so-called "sexy baby" voice.

  • Tina Fey's Liz Lemon hires her to be a writer for TGS with Tracy Jordan after a blog accuses

  • the sketch comedy show of being misogynistic.

  • "Lemon, is that the new woman you hired?"

  • "Is it cold in here, or is it just that I'm not wearing any underwear?"

  • Milioti has to do some high-wire comic actingas it turns out, the Abby Flynn act is a ruse;

  • she's really a comedian named Abby Grossman hiding from a crazed ex-husband.

  • Sleepwalk With Me

  • Stand-up comedian, actor, and writer Mike Birbiglia has presented Sleepwalk With Me

  • as a one-man show, a book, and, in 2012, a feature film.

  • In the largely autobiographical dramedy about the comedian's history of severe sleep disorders,

  • along with his anxieties over his career and romantic life, Milioti portrayed Janet Pandamiglio,

  • Birbiglia's sister.

  • The film was a critical hit and played well on the festival circuit, winning an Audience

  • Award at the Sundance Film Festival.

  • The Wolf of Wall Street

  • Milioti became a full-time cast member of How I Met Your Mother in the fall of 2013,

  • right around the same time as the release of The Wolf of Wall Street, a darkly comic

  • biopic about the rise and fall of disgraced stockbroker Jordan Belfort, played by Leonardo

  • DiCaprio.

  • Milioti portrayed Teresa, Jordan's sweet and patient first wife, later abandoned for a

  • blonde bombshell played by Margot Robbie.

  • The Garden State native is 100% New Jersey in the role, with an accent as big and bold

  • as her 1980s hair.

  • A to Z

  • Unfortunately, the very nature of her role on How I Met Your Mother meant Milioti was

  • out of work after the show's final season.

  • But by fall 2014, Milioti was already starring in another network sitcom.

  • Something of a successor to How I Met Your Mother with its rom-com sensibility and slow-build

  • storyline, NBC's A to Z aimed to tell the complete story of a relationship from the

  • "meet cute" to the "happily ever after" … or the split.

  • Ben Feldman of Mad Men portrayed Andrew opposite Milioti's Zelda.

  • Despite some critical praise for the show and the cast, the series didn't attract much

  • of an audience, and NBC broke up with A to Z after 13 episodes.

  • Fargo

  • Milioti popped up in a small but pivotal role in the second season of FX's Fargo.

  • Milioti's character is dying of cancer, and her appearance heartbreakingly links the second

  • season of the series with the first.

  • In the '70s-set second season, Milioti plays Betsy Solverson, wife of state trooper Lou.

  • Their daughter, Molly grows up to become a cop, tooas played by Allison Tolman in

  • the 2006-set first season.

  • The Mindy Project

  • In 2015, Milioti scored a recurring role on The Mindy Project.

  • She played Whitney, a tough-as-nails, workaholic hedge fund manager.

  • Milioti's character appeared in five episodes, dating one of the doctors in the sitcom's

  • central medical practice and also becoming a new, if brief, best friend for Mindy.

  • Whitney is a financial genius who helps the scatterbrained Mindy get her finances in order.

  • It also turns out that Whitney's a recovering cocaine addict, giving Milioti a chance to

  • do some dark-yet-wacky comedy.

  • "Why don't we hang out tonight.

  • How's 9?"

  • "Five works better for me given my situation and because 5:10 is the 4:20 of cocaine."

  • "Oh yeah, of course"
