The series “How I Met Your Mother” recounted the daily life of Ted Mosby and his friends. But we do not forget his two children, played by Lyndsy Fonseca and David Henrie, who have listened to him for years. Focus on the two performers.
How I Met Your Mother, the cult sitcom of the 2000s
For years (from 2005) we will have followed the daily life of Ted Mosby and his friends in the great sitcom How I Met Your Mother. Proposed by CBS, the series started with a simple concept: a father decides to tell his children how he met their mother. From there, the program followed the adventures of this very endearing group.
Most How I Met Your Mother would not be what it is without the presence of Ted’s children. Because it is to them that this whole story is told from the first episode. We then discover two teenagers facing the camera forced to listen to their father’s very long story. Over the seasons we have often seen the two performers appear on the screen, Lyndsy Fonseca et David Henrie. In total the duo is credited on 65 episodes of the 208 included in the series. The promotion of the last season was also amused by staging the duo particularly reassembled by their father because of whom they spent all their adolescence on a sofa.
But while the series has stopped since 2014, what becomes of Lyndsy Fonseca and David Henrie?
Lyndsy Fonseca, alias Penny Mosby
In parallel with his appearances in How I Met Your Mother, Lyndsy Fonseca appeared in numerous series and several notable films. For a few episodes, we saw her in Big Love (2006-2009), Dr House (2007) or again Heroes (2007). But it is especially with its role of Dylan in Desperate Housewives (2007-2009) which made it pass a course. She thus appears in season 4 of the cult series as well as in an episode of season 6.
Subsequently, she continued with regular roles in Nikita (2010-2013) and Agent Carter (2015-2016). Although these programs did not last very long (four seasons anyway for Nikita), Lyndsy Fonseca had a great time onscreen. It also allowed him to alternate with a few films. She thus plays the hero’s girlfriend Kick-Ass (2010) and its sequel, before taking the lead role in the dramatic film The Escort (2015).
In terms of privacy, the actress gave birth to a daughter in 2018 that she had with Noah Bean met on the set of Nikita. Certainly one of the reasons Lyndsy Fonseca has been rather low-key on screen in recent years. However, it could be that she has found an important new role in her career. She is indeed in the casting of Turner & Hooch, the serial adaptation of the film with Tom Hanks, currently available on Disney +.
David Henrie, alias Luke Mosby
Regarding David Henri, the actor made part of his debut in Raven phenomenon (2004-2007). A Disney Channel production that will open the door to other studio programs with big ears. Indeed, between 2007 and 2012 he played the role of Justin in The Wizards of Waverly Place with Selena Gomez. A role that he also takes up in The Cruising Life of Zack and Cody.
Unfortunately, the rest of his career is quite limited. The actor had a slump in the mid-2010s before launching himself behind the camera. Thus, in 2020, he realises This is the Year produced by Selena Gomez. He is currently preparing his second feature film entitled Boys of Summer, with Mel Gibson in the cast, and served as executive producer on the series A Tale Dark & Grimm.[display-posts orderby="rand"]
Finally, after having two children – a girl in 2019 and a boy in 2020 – David Henri will finally find an interesting role in front of the camera. Indeed, he was chosen to embody a young Ronald Reagan in the drama film Reagan dedicated to the former President of the United States.
